A craft beer experience unlike any other!

Featuring rare, vintage and one-off specialty beers from a carefully-curated list of craft breweries, the Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest is a one-of-a-kind event that showcases the creativity and skill of a select group of top brewers in the country.

This very special one-night tasting is for ticket holders only and will take place on Saturday, March 28th, 2015 at the beautiful MN History Center in downtown St Paul.

Thirty craft breweries, including ten from Minnesota, were invited to participate - each brewery will offer at least two beers, one of which will be a rare offering, which may include:

  • a beer that is limited in availability.
  • a beer of 2012 or older vintage.
  • a beer that was brewed specifically for the fest.

Tickets available online November 28th at 10am.
