Winterfest 2020, the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild’s most elevated beer festival, gives craft beer fans a one-of-a-kind format to enjoy the beers they love alongside specifically designed small plates in a festive, intimate party atmosphere.
This non-profit festival, produced by and benefiting the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild, will feature unlimited samples from 90+ breweries (including non-alcoholic samples), unlimited small-plate food pairings, a commemorative tasting glass, music, and the “Best of Fest” awards.
For the first time, Winterfest will take place at the Polaris Club of US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings! We will be working with the catering team at U.S. Bank Stadium to create special small plates that pair perfectly with seasonal craft beer.
