A quick reminder that the first annual Mankato Craft Beer Expo is January 19th, from 2-6pm at Verizon Wireless Center in downtown Mankato. This event is put on by the same fine folks who have brought you the St. Paul Summer Beer Festival and Craft Beer Expos in St. Cloud and Rochester, so you know it’ll be a fun event.
The expo will showcase the offerings of craft breweries here in Minnesota, as well as all over the United States. Attendees to the expo will have the opportunity to sample beers from 40 different craft breweries in a commemorative sampling glass.
In addition to this, they can enjoy educational seminars throughout the day covering subjects such as Food Pairing, Homebrewing, and the History of Brewing in Minnesota. With brewery and distributor representatives on hand to answer questions, attendees will be able to have an enjoyable and educational experience learning about beer, its components and flavors.
Live music, food, various beer related vendors will be available as well.
