Back for a third year, FairVote Minnesota’s annual fundraiser Best of the Wurst asks you to a) eat as many brat and sausage samples as you can, b) rank-choice vote for your fave and c) enjoy cider and music all afternoon. The fest frequenters among us have probably seen FairVote at other events: they’ve helped the likes of the Dabbler and In Cahoots roll out ballots (and are on the cusp of instituting rank choice voting in Rochester!). This year’s inclusive roster includes vegan brats from J. Selby’s and Fig + Farro, gluten- and dairy-free from Pitchfork, something delicious and smoked from Northern Waters, and a dozen-odd more. Quench it down with limited releases from Schell’s and Sociable. The base ticket gets you unlimited samples, while additional tiers pile on beer tickets, early admittance, VIP restrooms, admission gift, and even unlimited beer. Sunday, September 23, 2-6 PM. $25-75.Isabelle Wattenberg
