‘Minnesota Pint Day’ Is Tomorrow, Where Can You Celebrate?
Take some time tomorrow and raise a pint to the craft brew industry here in Minnesota. Tomorrow will mark 'Minnesota Pint Day' here in the land of 10,000 lakes, and for that matter probably 10,000 brews. Many craft breweries in Minnesota will be celebrating with some exclusive drinkware and specials. So where can you head here in Southern Minnesota, or for that matter anywhere in Minnesota to celebrate? The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild created a handy map that highlights all participating member breweries, some of which are pretty close by.
You can use the map above to find all the area locations, but in just a little bit we will list some nearby breweries that might be easier to use than the map.
The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild's map highlights the entire state, but we will focus on some of the more local breweries that will offer up some glassware to ring in the 'holiday' that the brewers guild lists as a "way to spend the dark, cold days of early December than sharing a fresh pint with friends at your local brewery? That’s the idea behind the Guild’s first-ever MN Pint Day – giving MN craft beer fans a fun excuse to grab some friends, share a pint, and support your favorite breweries this holiday season!"
The brewers guild's website went on to state that beginning on Wednesday "stop by a participating craft brewery and or brewpub to pick up your official MN Pint Day glassware." Some other good news about Minnesota Pint Day is that according to the guild "all proceeds from Pint Day sales stay with the brewery or brewpub!"
