Five New Beers You Have To Try At This Year’s Minnesota State Fair

The Great Minnesota Get-Together kicks off in just a little over two weeks, but I’ve already found the five best specialty beers that are making their debut at this year’s fair.


My Wisconsin heritage means, of course, that I’m a big craft beer fan. But Minnesota is home some of my favorite craft breweries. And many of them are now brewing a special beer you can only get at the state fair.


The State Fair website has a complete list of all the new brews and beverages and where to get them HERE.

Here are the five specialty brews I can’t wait to try:

Dill Pickle Beer — This American-style ale by Barley John’s Brew Pub is dry hopped with fresh dill horseradish and spices, and garnished with a dill pickle and havarti dill cheese. It has an ABV of 4.2 percent.

Lingonberry Lager — This lager by 612 Brew is golden in color and features sweet and tart flavors from the Scandinavian berry. It has an ABV of 5 percent.

Red, Light and Blue Frozen Beer — A red citrus sangria beer layered with Grain Belt Frozen Blue and Grain Belt Premium Light.

Duke of Cuke — This light lager by Insight Brewing is infused with cucumber for a “refreshing, crisp sipper” that’ll quench your thirst. It has an ABV of 5.5 percent.

And, of course, my all-time favorite…

Mini Donut Beer — This State Fair favorite is made by Minnesota’s own Lift Bridge Brewing Company. Its incredible flavor really does remind you of some warm, fresh mini donuts. And, your glass even comes with the same sugar and cinnamon you get on actual mini donuts!
