Note: This is sold out online, but there’s still some tickets left at retail partners. The thick-skinned (or thick-sock-wearing) among us are happy to sip suds in subzero temperatures because, gosh darn it, there is excellent beer to be had. With this in mind, the Beer Dabbler has gathered over 160+ breweries for the 9th annual Winter Beer Dabbler, held again at the State Fairgrounds. In addition to strong brews, the event includes a silent disco, food trucks galore, a meat and cheese showcase we are extremely pepped about, and the chance to vote for your favorite brewery to take home the Lord Dabbler Cup. Pro tip: wear gloves a sample glass won’t slip through. Saturday, 2:30-6:30 PM. Tickets at Retail Partners. —Isabelle Wattenberg
