Badger Hill and Valleyfair Want To Take You On A Ride

Shakopee Minnesota institution, Valleyfair, is teaming with the new kid on the block, Badger Hill Brewing. The amusement park is celebrating its 40th anniversary and to mark this momentous event, Badger Hill is brewing up an exclusive beer. High Roller Extra Park Ale High Roller Extra Park Ale is modeled after an EPA style beer. It is malt-forward, easy drinking and perfect for a day at the park.

Unlike the thrill ride of the same name, this EPA won’t jerk you around. It’s balanced with just enough hop bitterness to cut through many of the park’s food offerings. Selecting the beer itself was a collaborative process, as Valleyfair’s marketing team had the enviable job of selecting from four Badger Hill offerings with which to commemorate 40 years of fun. In the end this easy drinking option won out and it’s not hard to see why. At 5.2% ABV and 43 IBUs it is approachable and just what Valleyfair was looking for. This beer is perfect for park regulars and beer tickers alike (remember, it’s exclusive to the park).

The weather is finally resembling something close to summer. What better way to spend it than a day at the amusement park? I’ll tell you, a day at Valleyfair with a cold local brew in hand.
