The Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest will bring some of America’s favorite craft beers to The Minnesota History Center in downtown St. Paul on March 29th, 2014. General Admission and Designated Driver tickets available on Friday, February 7th at 12:00pm (CST) online and at selected retailers.
Rare, vintage, and one-of-a-kind beers from 30 national breweries and 10 Minnesotan breweries will be featured. “This is the first year for the Northern Lights Fest,” said organizers Juno Choi and Mark Opdahl, who also coordinate the St. Paul
Summer Beer Fest as well as Mankato Craft Beer Expo, and Rochester Craft Beer Expo. “These aren’t beers you’re going to be able to go out and buy off the shelf or on tap at a pub,” according to Choi. “These are limited-availability, vintage bottles from a past release, and in some cases brewed specifically for the fest.”
Ticket holders to this event will also receive a complimentary catered meal, live music, and of course good company in the beautiful MN History Center. A portion of the proceeds will go toward Pints for Prostates, founded by beer writer and prostate cancer survivor Rick Lyke in 2008. This grassroots campaign brings beer and education together by raising awareness among men about the importance of regular health screenings and early detection.
