We are thrilled to announce All Pints North is coming back to Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth on July 31, 2021! Join us on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior for an afternoon of great beer, sights, and community!


Have APN 2020 Tickets? Those who purchased tickets to the canceled 2020 festival were issued new tickets for APN 2021 in early June. Can’t find your tickets? Report an issue here.

Get VIP Access! MNthusiast VIP tickets grant access to the festival 30 minutes early. MNthusiasts will be sent a special promo-code on June 1 to allow them to access up to two VIP tickets. Not a MNthusisat yet? Join here for just $35/year!

Ticket price includes unlimited samples of craft beer, cider, seltzer, and more from 100+ MN breweries, a commemorative tasting glass, and access to all festival activities.  MNthusiast tickets allow entrance 30 minutes early. Sober driver ticket holders wear a special wristband and do not receive a commemorative tasting glass; there will be NA craft beverage options for DD ticket holders. Proceeds from this festival help the MNCBG, as a nonprofit, support the breweries that participate. No refunds on purchased tickets.

*** Please be aware that we will not accept duplicate tickets purchased on the second-hand market. If you must purchase a ticket on the secondary market, we suggest that you make the transfer AT the event to ensure the authenticity of your ticket. To be clear, if you purchase a duplicate ticket that has already been scanned, you will not get in.***

Festival Entry  & Early Check-In:

Take advantage of the APN Marketplace!

Ticket holders will be able to check in to the festival grounds beginning at 2:30. Once your ticket is scanned and you are wristbanded, hang out in the APN Marketplace—sample local goods from our vendors, grab a bite at our foodtrucks, and scope out the layout of the fest. (Once wristbanded, you will not be able to exit/re-enter the fest grounds.) At 3:30, all attendees waiting in the Marketplace will immediately be let into the fest.

MNthusiasts with early access tickets to APN can still check in early and enjoy the Marketplace. At 3:00, you will be let into the festival early using your exclusive MNthusiast line.

Check-in will occur near the main arch at Bayfront Festival Park. Follow venue signage to the General Admission line or the MNthusiast/VIP/Press line.

There are many ways to get to and from All Pints North. Please plan a responsible and safe ride home. Designated Driver tickets to APN can be purchased for just $15; get them above!

Will there be tickets available day-of?
No. APN is sold out.

Is this fest accessible?
APN is held in Bayfront Festival Park. Much of the fest is located on uneven grass that may be wet, muddy, or soft. Portions of the festival grounds may be difficult to access via wheelchair. There will be multiple ADA-compliant restroom stalls. For COVID-safety, there will be no public seating at the fest; guests are encouraged to bring their own seating.

How early should I arrive?
To avoid check-in lines, APN will have early check-in.

Guests can begin the ticket/wristband process at 2:30 and wait for the fest to open in our APN Marketplace. Once in the Marketplace, you will not be able to leave and re-enter. (There will be bathrooms and water access within the Marketplace.) At 3:30p.m. anyone in the Marketplace will be immediately let into the festival to begin sampling. Once the Marketplace is full, early check-in will stop.

Will there be any special or rare beers?
Yes! You can find the beers being poured using our mobile app. Search “All Pints North” in your app store in the week preceding the fest.

Will there be non-alcoholic drinks?
Yes. Brewers are bringing Minnesota-made N/A options that will be poured in a designated N/A tent. There will also be plenty of water.

How do I vote for Best Beer and Best Brewery?
There will be a QR code on your fest program and every brewery booth. Scan the code to vote!

Will my APN 2020 tickets be transferred?
Yes. In June, all those who purchased tickets to APN 2020 were emailed new tickets. This includes 3/6 pack ticket purchases. Can’t find your tickets? Report an issue here.

I have another question.
For additional questions or concerns, please email us.
