Upcoming Events:

The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild offers events throughout the year to promote Minnesota breweries and brewpubs, help members of the public learn about the different beers and businesses throughout the state, and raise operating funds to support our nonprofit mission to promote, protect, and grow a robust Minnesota craft brewing industry.

What events does the MNCBG put on?

The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild offers two beer festivals each year: the All Pints North summer beer festival in Duluth, and the Autumn Brew Review beer festival in Minneapolis. APN is a summer festival, and ABR is the longest-running festival in the state of Minnesota.
The Guild also coordinates MN Pint Day, a day that encourages craft beer fans to visit their local breweries and brewpubs to collect exclusive pint day glasses and take advantage of promotions and deals offered by each business.

How do breweries sign up for All Pints North or Autumn Brew Review?

Registration information is sent out to all member breweries and included in our member newsletter and private communications. If you’d like to pour at one of these festivals but aren’t a member, you can join the Guild here! We have options for open businesses, breweries in planning, and non-beer beverage producers (like cideries, kombucha, tea, and more).

The Guild and the MN State Fair

The MNCBG is also proud to offer the largest selection of Minnesota-made beer at the state fair each year! With rotating flights made of nearly 200 individual beers from over 90 breweries and brewpubs, the “Brewed in Minnesota” exhibit offers the most diverse beer lineup at the fair and highlights businesses from every corner of the state.

Stop by our space in the Agriculture/Horticulture building for a flight of 4 different beers from 4 different breweries. There’s always something new on tap!

Do you do any networking or professional development events for brewery staff?

Yes! Each spring, the Guild hosts the MN Brewers Conference during the day. We also run a MN Brewers Cup competition that provides you with valuable feedback on your beers, and the awards ceremony is typically held in the evening after the conference.

Can I sponsor a Guild event?

Absolutely! Please see our Sponsorship page to learn what sponsorships are currently available.

How do I sign up to be a vendor at a Guild event?

Each of our beer festivals will include a vendor application on the festival page. If no festivals are currently open, please submit a vendor interest form so that we can reach out to let you know when vendor spots are opening for each festival!

Can I perform at a Guild event?

We typically book our musicians and entertainment months or even a year in advance of our festivals. If you’re interested in playing at a Guild event, please submit a music/entertainment contact form, and we will reach out if your style fits our needs for a future event.
