We couldn’t be more thankful for all the support shown for craft beer in Minnesota. Cheers to you! To relive the fun, see our Autumn Brew Review Facebook Album for pictures.
We hope to see you next year! In the meantime, please check out our next fests and events.
Autumn Brew Review is coming back to Boom Island Park in Minneapolis this fall! Join us on the shores of the mighty Mississippi for a perfect October afternoon of autumn brews and winter warmers. Check out the ABR Fest Guide to get the most out of the event!
***We will not accept duplicate or fake tickets purchased on the second-hand market. Beware of scams! 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. ***
Fest entry will be on the south-east side of Boom Island Park (near the playground). The easiest approach is from BF Nelson Park off of Marshall St. We encourage festgoers to use public transit, bikes, or taxis/ride-shares for this fest, and plan a safe trip home!
Proceeds from this festival help the MNCBG, as a nonprofit, support the breweries that participate. If the event is canceled due to public health emergency, tickets will automatically roll over to the 2023 event.

Can I bring…?
Is this fest accessible?
ABR is held in Boom Island Park. Much of the fest is located on uneven/sloped grass that may be wet, muddy, or soft. Areas of the festival grounds may be difficult to access via wheelchair. There will be multiple ADA-compliant restroom stalls. Guests are encouraged to bring their own seating.
How early should I arrive?
To avoid check-in lines, ABR will have early check-in.
Guests can begin the ticket/wristband process at 12:30 and wait for the fest to open in our ABR 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 1:30p.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. More details will be available in the weeks 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 and throughout the fest. There will also be plenty of water.
How do I vote for Best Beer and Best Brewery?
Voting can only be done in person at Autumn Brew Review! Stop by our PAC Tent near the Marketplace to cast your vote!
Will there be tickets day-of?
Likely not. ABR usually sells out at full capacity, meaning there will not be any extra tickets, including DD tickets. Please purchase your tickets by early October to ensure you’ll get yours!
I have another question.
