Nordeast Big River Brew Fest Benefit Party 2018

Don’t miss what might be the last big outdoor festivals of the season! Eastside Services hosts their annual fundraiser this year, featuring over 30 breweries bringing awesome local and national beers to the Twin Cities.

This is a super fun festival. Last year there were tons of people, but not so many that all you did was just stand in a line.  – It’s fun without being overdone.



This beer fest is one of the “Thriftiest” ones all year.  Tickets are $30-35 (compared to $50+ other beer fests) and include unlimited sampling throughout the day.


But more importantly, the Nordeast Big Brew Fest is a benefit for Eastside Neighborhood Services.  This is a really good group that focuses all of their efforts directly on NE Minneapolis. They run lean, with a mostly volunteer team and ensure that the money goes directly toward programming.  Their focus is “on teaching people to fish” – education and supporting people that need a little boost to better their lives.

So not only do you get $50 worth of beer for $30, but you know that the money goes directly to people that deserve it.



In their parking lot: 1700 NE 2nd St. MPLS 55413
