This year at the Minnesota State Fair you will be able to enjoy some high quality beer options at the new Land of 10,000 Lakes Craft Beer Hall which will be hosted by the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild. The exhibit will be located in the Agriculture/Horticulture Building which is on the southeastern side of the fairgrounds. The hours will be from 9 AM to 9 PM daily beginning on Thursday, August 23 and going through Tuesday, September 3rd.
There will be some beer education on-site where you will learn about Minnesota beer and it’s history with special guests such as Chad Hilgenberg head brewer at Great Waters, and Doug Hoverson author of “Land of Amber Waters.” More than 20 different local breweries will be selling flights of their brews in the exhibit and there will even be a spot for the kids to hang out and enjoy some root beer.
