4/2
As we mentioned last week, it's Great Waters Brewing Company's 15th anniversary, and it's celebrating in style. Today is a not-to-be-missed cask beer dinner that features five courses created by chef Ernesto that are carefully paired with five specially chosen beers from brewmaster Bob. What can you expect? Pork tenderloin, polenta, and a mild chipotle sauce paired with O'Byrne's Irish Red, and fruit pizza and bacon chocolate chip cookies matched with Scotch Ale--and that's just two of the courses! The meal begins at 7 p.m. and costs $65.

Three words we love to see together: Spring Ale Fest! This first-time event takes place at the Ritz Theater in Northeast Minneapolis and boasts eight local craft brewers serving up more than 30 beers. The sampling takes place in two sessions (12-4 p.m. and 5-9 p.m.), and the $40 tickets (and $15 designated driver tickets) include unlimited samples. You'll also enjoy raffles, prizes, and mixing with fellow beer lovers. Local favorites like Flat Earth and Brau Brothers are some of the confirmed breweries. For more info or to snag tickets, visit the Spring Ale Fest website.

On the flip side, wine lovers can trek out to Cannon River Winery, the state's largest winery, for its annual Meet the Winemaker event from 12 to 4 p.m. Vincent Negret will be on hand to visit with winery guests and answer questions in addition to giving guided tours of the winery at 1 and 3 p.m. Guests can also try samples of wine from the tanks. In addition to meeting the winemaker there will be live music by Andrew Walesch (2-5 p.m.) and complimentary light appetizers. The best part: this event is it's free and open to the public.
