Craft Beer week is coming to an end in the land of 10,000 lakes.  At GetKnit we are quite sad that our favorite week of the year is dissapearing before our eyes. We 612brew-Art-A-Whirl-Poster_Smallhave decided rather than mourning the loss of such awesomeness, we are going to celebrate the delicious craft brews our amazing state has to offer. Look for your GetKnit Gurus out and about this weekend in our Guru shirts giving away coozies to all the coolest beer drinkers. Looking for some of our favorite watering holes? Let me help you out!

 612 Brew  is hosting Brew Fest this weekend in collaboration with Art-A-Whirl. The festivites include 10 bands and 7 food trucks over 2 days.   Rumor has it that our friends at ProjectAl also designed a sick t-shirt for this event!

If you’re going to be haning around the NorthEast neighborhood be sure to check out Dangerous Man Brewing Co. for a creamy ale and some old school hip hop.  I’ll let you in on a secret…they also have the board game hungry hungry hippos for patrons to enjoy. What else do you need in life?

brew_system_wornIndeed Brewing Company  is just a stone’s throw away from 612 and Dangerous Man and also boasts tasty brews and an epic food truck schedule.  Ring in summer by trying a pint of their newest: Shenanigans Summer Ale.

Excelsior Brewing Company is a personal favorite of mine and can woo anyone with their giant Jenga games and dedication to exceptional beer. Big Island Blonde gets me every time, but if I’m being honest, the staff and legendary music playlists keep me coming back for more.

Up for a mini road trip? Our friends at Bent Paddle Brewing  Co. are throwing a Grand Opening bash this weekend in the great city of Duluth, MN.  This is your chance to get a first edition Bent Paddle pub glass and $4 refills for the duration of the weekend! Not only is the taproom beautiful and furnished with recycled wood, but their beer is made with pure Lake Superior water.

I hope to see you all this weekend! Happy Craft Brew Week Minnesota!

Cheers,

Guru Allison
