The premiere Craft Beer event of the winter is taking place next Friday when the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild hosts Winterfest at the Minnesota History Center. Food will be catered by Bon Appétit and Flow DJ will be providing the entertainment for the evening. This intimate event sold out in seconds and promises to introduce a plethora of winter beer varieties from the members of the Guild. If you were not able to get tickets, you still have a chance to get in…for free! The Guild is having a writing contest in order to name Mr. and Mrs. Craft Beer Minnesota. They are looking for your Minnesota Craft Beer story and they want you to explain why you should win. The contest runs through Wednesday, February 1st.
The Snowshoe award will be presented at the end of the night to the brewer who wins the people’s choice for best beer at the event. The winner will be given the entry fee for one beer at the Great American Beer festival held in Denver, Colorado in the fall. Here are the details for Winterfest:
