If you love to tip back a tall cool one, you'll love Rochester On Tap Craft Beer Festival... and it's coming back to the Med City this fall!

If you love beer, you'll love Rochester On Tap

I have to admit that I probably get this from having grown up over in Wisconsin, but I LOVE me some craft beer. And I love heading to all the incredible craft breweries here in Rochester and across Minnesota and trying some of their amazing brews.

That's why I'm beyond excited about the news that Rochester On Tap Craft Beer Festival -- the biggest craft beer festival in southeast Minnesota -- is coming back to Minnesota's Med City this fall! Rochester On Tap Craft Beer Festival is your chance to sample over 100 amazing craft beers, talk with representatives from those breweries and just generally have a great time.

Rochester On Tap is back for 2021

Rochester On Tap was supposed to have happened in October of 2020, but, of course, due to the pandemic, it was postponed. But it's back, bigger than ever, and is set for Saturday, October 30th at Mayo Civic Center here in Rochester.

Throw on your best Halloween costume and join us for a day overflowing with fun at the Mayo Civic Center. We’ll be pouring up hundreds of craft beers from over 50 of America’s favorite breweries.
