Pride Beer Dabbler Turns Five
By Lindsi Gish
The Pride Beer Dabbler is back and better than ever, celebrating five years of drinking craft beer in support of our GLBTQ community! This year’s theme focuses on celebrating and honoring icons and advocates of the community, recognizing their role in bringing awareness and progress to critical issues like marriage equality and transphobia.
“We’re honored and excited to once again participate in the Twin Cities Pride celebration and to show our support for the GLBTQ community. There is much to celebrate in the progress that has been made over the past five years, but there’s still a ways to go, especially with regard to inequity and discrimination many transgender people face in our society today,” said Kevin Stocks, events coordinator at The Beer Dabbler and The Growler magazine.
In this spirit of celebration, the more than 50 attending breweries will feature a special beer creation in honor of one iconic figure. Harvey Milk Stout, anyone?
Music and Dance
The Prairie Fire Ladies Choir will kick off the evening with some of your favorite pop and rock covers. Hip-hop artist BdotCroc will follow, and Apollo Cobra will close the night with their huge beats and explosive dance party. The silent disco is also back, so put on your wireless headphones and bust out those sweet disco moves.
10 food trucks will be on site…Tiki Tim’s, Gastrotruck, Hot Indian Foods, Potter’s Pasties, and more!
