The Mash takes the Twin Cities: August 9th-16th

08-Twin-Cities

As home to the United States’ second-oldest family run brewery (which also happens to be the largest & oldest brewery in Minneapolis), the Twin Cities are already firmly entrenched as a craft beer bastion. Beer-friendly legislature meant an 81% increase in breweries between 2011 and 2012, and between that and the amazing time we had there on the Mash last year, of course we wanted to go back. Check out the lineup below.
