Tickets for 2015 Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild festivals are on-sale beginning at noon, Monday, January 5th. These events are among the best in region, and the bulk purchase is your best way to make sure you have your spot. These events will sell out, so if you can swing the cash it is worth it.
One change to the festival program from last year is the Guild’s premiere event, Winterfest. The Crème de la Crème of beer fests will be split into two nights. The change was made to keep the fest’s intimate atmosphere and accommodate the growing number of brewers. You can hear Guild President, Dan Schwarz talk about the changes on the latest BeerCast.
