The concept behind the first Limited Action Beer Festival is simple: Get some of the best brewers in town together. Give them wild rice, something Minnesotan, hops grown at Grumpy’s. Have them brew. Then invite party animals show up and drink the results. Bingo bango. 612, Excelsior, Fulton, Indeed, Lift Bridge, Mankato, Northgate, Rush River, Surly, Summit, and others will be competing for your taste buds at Grumpy’s downtown. Make sure you plan a ride home. Saturday, 2 PM. Free.—Chuck Derulosi
