The Minnesota State Fair announced the 46 brand new beverages that will be at the State Fair this year, you can check them all out HERE. But below are the 5 I can't wait to try!
The first one on the list jumped out right away! If you're a fan of Arnold Palmers then this one is a no brainer!
Arnold Palmer Spiked Slushy - The delicious Arnold Palmer is now in a spiked, super refreshing slushy. 5% ABV. At Coasters, located on the southeast corner of Carnes Avenue and Liggett Street.
Another drink I can't wait to try has a little bit of spice.
Chili Pineapple Express Sour - This bright, refreshing pineapple sour ale is rimmed with a light coating of Tajin chili-lime seasoning to add a little extra layer of complexity to this refreshing summer sipper. But don’t worry – it’s just Minnesota spicy ;-). 4.8% ABV. Brewed in Minneapolis, Minn., by Pryes Brewing Company. At Ball Park Cafe, located on the east side of Underwood Street between Dan Patch and Carnes avenues, outside The Garden.
The third drink is one of my favorite desserts turned into a cider.
Strawberry Rhubarb Cider - Freshly pressed apples fermented dry then sweetened with the classic Minnesota combination of rhubarb and juiced strawberries. 6.2% ABV. Brewed in Minneapolis, Minn., by Sociable Cider Werks. At LuLu’s Public House, located at West End Market, south of the Schell’s Stage at Schilling Amphitheater.
The fourth drink is interesting and I can't wait to try it!
Pitt Boss - An exclusive State Fair beer collaboration between Bauhaus Brew Labs and Animales BBQ? Yes please! Feast your taste buds on this delicious blonde ale infused with juicy smoked peaches straight off the smoker at Animales BBQ. Expect this one to be slightly smokey, massively peachy and majorly crisp, with a touch of lingering malt sweetness that makes it the perfect pairing for delicious BBQ food. 5% ABV. Brewed in Minneapolis, Minn., by Bauhaus Brew Labs in collaboration with Animales BBQ Co. of Minneapolis, Minn. At RC’s BBQ, located on the north side of Dan Patch Avenue between Liggett and Chambers streets
The fifth drink I can't wait to try is a nod to Kirby Puckett and as a baseball fan I have to try it!
Kirby Pucker #34 Preserved Lemon
Batting third is Kirby Pucker, a rotation of brews that undergoes a second fermentation with lactobacillus. A collaboration with Moroccan Chef Hassan Ziadi, this sour hit is juicy, sweet, and mixed with summer goodness of preserved and fresh lemon. 5% ABV.
