The 20th annual City Pages Beer Festival, one of the longest-running events of its kind in the Midwest and the Original in the Twin Cities, returns to downtown near 10th & Hennepin on Saturday, June 2, 2012. Open to the public, this outdoor tasting features a variety of the best domestic and imported beers available at metro area MGM locations, live musical performance from POP Rocks and great people-watching!
