A craft beer experience unlike any other!

Featuring rare, vintage and one-off specialty beers from a carefully-curated list of craft breweries, the Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest is a one-of-a-kind event that showcases the creativity and skill of a select group of top brewers in the country.

This 5th Annual, special one-night tasting will take place on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 at the beautiful MN History Center in downtown St Paul.

Thirty craft breweries, including ten from Minnesota, were invited to participate - each brewery will offer two beers, of which will be rare offerings, which may include:

  • a beer that is limited in availability.
  • a vintage beer.
  • a beer that was brewed specifically for the fest.

Our 2018 breweries have now been posted!
