Travel to the Winter Beer Dabbler
The Winter Beer Dabbler is once again being held at the Mighty Midway and the Warner Coliseum at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Whether by bus, taxi, car or bike, the Beer Dabbler wants you to travel safely to and from the festival.
The designated Bus/Shuttle/Taxi drop off location is the "Loop Gate" off Como Ave (see map below). That address is 1741 Como Avenue.
PRE-WRISTBANDING & SHUTTLES:
Get a free ride to and from the Fairgrounds from one of our fabulous partners (check with locations for shuttle schedules). You can also get your wristband from 11am–2pm, and save time when you get to the event. Walk over to the event from Stout's Pub, or shuttles/buses are available from Northern Taphouse in Lakeville, MN, Milwaukee Burger Company in Hudson, WI, Joe Sensers Kitchen & Bar in Roseville, MN, Forgotten Star Brewing in Fridley, MN, Twin Cities 400 Tavern in Minneapolis & The Original Gabe's By The Park and Dual Citizen Brewing in St. Paul!
If you're going to drive, parking is free on the State Fairgrounds, and we recommend the Robin lot, or the West Como lot (just south of Como Ave), which can be located on the official Minnesota State Fair MAP. Those will be the closest parking lots to the main gate (located at Liggett & Carnes). You may leave your vehicle overnight in these lots, to be picked up the next day.
Accessible parking is located on West Dan Patch Ave with appropriate displayed credentials.
