Since you might not get tickets to the Big Show, what are your other top beer events? We were able to go a couple year ago and had a blast BUT there are probably a ton of other beerfests around the country worth experiencing!
Two of our favorites in Minnesota are: All Pints North https://www.mncraftbrew.org/event/all-pints-north/
Northern Lights http://www.rarebeerfest.com/
What says you!!
The festival grounds will be bigger than ever in 2018, and arranged in an entirely different way.
