3rd Annual Nordeast Big River Brew Fest

The 3rd Annual Nordeast Big River Brew Fest will be on Saturday October 19th, 1:00-4:00pm at the Grain Belt Bottling House on 79 13th Avenue NE, MPLS.  The festival will be indoors this year, so rain will not be an issue.  General information and online tickets can be found here.  If the internet isn’t your thing, you can also buy tickets at North Loop Liquor downtown MPLS.  Tickets are a steal at $25 in advance, and $30 at the door.  The brewery list currently in the works, and an in-progress list can be found online.  All proceeds from the Fest benefit the East Side Neighborhood Services (ESNS).

The Nordeast Brewers Alliance is holding it’s 2nd annual BJCP competition in conjunction with the beer fest.  The Nordeast Big River HBC registration opened up on August 24 and runs till September 28, or until 400 entries are logged.  It’s a beer only competition, but has two additional categories: American Wild Ale and 100% Brett.  We want the funky stuff!  Registration and more info can be found at nordeasthbc.brewcompetition.com.  We still need judges and stewards to help out on October 12 and 13.  Winners will be announced on October 19th at the Brew Fest.  Chop & Brew also filmed a promo video for the competition.
