The Beer Dabbler at Twin Cities Pride is back again for the 5th year. This year’s festival kicks off Twin Cities Pride weekend on Friday, June 24, 2016 from 5:30–9:30pm.

With an updated format this year, 50 Minnesota breweries will present a special beer creation to celebrate and pay homage to the icons and advocates from the GLBT community, who have played a role in bringing awareness and progress to critical issues in the community like marriage equality and trans-phobia.
