Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival

In addition to over 100 breweries sampling more than 400 beers, the festival includes: an official festival kick-off with Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman tapping the inaugural Oak Barrel brew – this year’s beer is to be a special release from Stone Brewing Company; new brews from various breweries; live music on two stages from local bands including Koo Koo Kanga Roo, The Chalice, Bloodnstuff and Heiruspecs; an AHA/BJCP Homebrew Contest presented by Northern Brewer; The Lord Dabbler Cup awarded to the best brewery as voted on by festival-goers; hot food served by local gourmet food trucks including Gastrotruck, Natedogs, Potter’s Pasties, and many more; Leinenkugel’s Silent Disco and many more happy surprises.

“Every year we are amazed with how many people turn out for this annual outdoor event in the middle of winter, so we are thrilled to offer even more reasons for people to brave the cold” said Matt Kenevan, founder of the Beer Dabbler. “Even though we are bigger then ever before, we encourage beer fans to pick up their tickets as soon as possible because we are confident this year’s event will sell out in record time.”
