You can almost sense its arrival—the faraway hoofbeat of livestock, the clank of carnival rides, the waft of frier grease in the air. Yes, the Minnesota State Fair is upon us once again. You’re going to need a beer.

Since the launch of Lift Bridge Mini Donut in 2013, the Fair has engendered the zaniest output from Minnesota’s breweries. Fair beers are 12 days of devil-may-care: stuffed with fruits, pickled with veggies, ringed with sugar, salt, nuts, and chocolate, soured with citrus, or served with a s’more. 

This year is no exception. Thirty-seven specialty beverages—including two dozen new!—make 2018 the wildest State Fair beer lineup that Minnesota ever Got-Together. Forty of the state’s breweries and brewpubs are represented on taps across the fairgrounds (including a lot of, you know, regular beer).

Without further ado, here’s The Growler’s Complete Guide to Beer at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair.

Note: The beer list and descriptions are provided by the Minnesota State Fair, the Minnesota Craft Brewer’s Guild, and Minnesota Wine Country, and are subject to change.
