I love this party. I feel like it’s the culmination of a summer full of events.

RED STAG is the place that kicked off the whole NE Free Block Party thing, so we gotta give them props! PLUS, they do it the biggest!


This weekend, you’ve got a whole host of awesome beer/bikes/food/music culture going on.





There are WAY too many activities, but we will be there with a booth selling Craft Notes and giving away prizes, free beers… plus rollergirls, live screen printing, photo booths, awesome food (burgers & fish tacos!), and a ton of great people.




The Music

HUGE lineup this year! Doomtree’s SIMS, Farewell Milwaukee… Plus, Mark Mallman just released a new video (follow that link, it’s sick!).

All concerts are free all day so show up early if you don’t want to miss them!


In Cahoots – Beer!

red stag ne mpls block party

A few years ago the Red Stag changed the format about this party, teaming breweries together to make special beers for the event. Of course, the winning team is always the most popular breweries, but I think they’ve all found the secret to a good beer: Start with a flagship, then let the partner tweek it.

So, this year, it’s more of a honed system and it will be fun to try some of the new special beers you’ll only find here!

Here are your teams:

  • Dangerous Man + Indeed
  • Fair State + Sociable Cider
  • Fulton + Modist
  • Surly + Bent Paddle
  • Schells + Bauhaus
  • Summit + Bang

Nothing on this matter for now. But this is a good post.
