Brewers from over 50 beverage makers come together to compete in five categories, providing an unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to attend.

The Thrill of Craft Beer Competition

At the heart of the St. Cloud Craft Beer Tour is the intense competition between local and regional breweries. Each year, attendees are privileged to witness the Brewer’s Cup, a special beer made for tasting by VIP guests. This year, the coveted award went to Buck’s Mill’s Strawberry Rhubarb brew, a unique concoction that captivated the VIP palates.

A Toast to Creative Brews

One can’t help but marvel at the creativity on display at the Tour. The St. Cloud Craft Beer Tour is not just about tasting great beer; it’s about celebrating the innovation and artistry that goes into brewing. Each sip offers a story and the chance to savor the hard work and passion of the talented brewers behind every frothy glass.

Supporting Local Causes

Beyond the beer, the Tour serves a higher purpose: community support. This year, proceeds from the event went to the St. Cloud Youth Basketball Association, intertwining the joy of craft beer with a commitment to local youth and sports programs. It’s this spirit of giving back that also elevates the Tour from a mere tasting event to a fulcrum of community engagement.

Whether you are a beer aficionado or new to the scene, the St. Cloud Craft Beer Tour offers a hop-filled haven where all can indulge their palate. With each year offering new tastes and surprises, one thing remains constant: it’s an event not to be missed!
