Great local Brews and Live Music!
It’s back! Prairie Brewfest is making its third glorious appearance this September, where anyone 21+ is welcome to sample a variety of cold and delicious craft beer from Bauhaus Brew Labs, Big Wood Brewing, Lake Monster Brewing, LTD Brewing, Mankato Brewery, and Surly Brewing, to name a few. Overall, around fifteen craft brewers are expected to participate in this year’s event, pouring more than fifty different varieties of beers and ciders. Don’t care for beer? That’s ok – there will be wine served, as well! Get your groove on with some classic rock from classic guys, too, as Dave Lindahl and Wondercure will be returning as the live music venue for this year’s event.
Where fun meets philanthropy: Conceived nearly three years ago, Prairie Brewfest came about as an exciting way to introduce the Eden Prairie Community Foundation’s work. Over the years, they’ve given about $1.6 million in grants to over sixty organizations serving people who live or work in Eden Prairie, as well as having been a fiscal sponsor for many distinguished projects, such as the Veterans Memorial and Miracle Field. When residents give to the Foundation, attend one of its events (ahem, Prairie Brewfest), or start a fund at Eden Prairie Community Foundation, they’re helping make Eden Prairie better.
The who, the what, the when, and the where: This year’s event has changed locations from the SouthWest Transit Parking Ramp to the ever-gorgeous Purgatory Creek Park. For a mere $30 advance ticket price per person, come on out from 3-6 pm on Saturday, September 10, 2016, and support the Eden Prairie Community Foundation with the fundraiser and “friendraiser” that is Prairie Brewfest!
