Seeing as National Drink Beer Day is this week (Tuesday, September 28th), if you're looking to tip back a tall, cold one, here are some amazing beers brewed right here in Minnesota that I heartily recommend!

Seeing as I hail from Wisconsin, where beer and local breweries have ALWAYS been popular, I really enjoy all the incredible craft beers and breweries that have popped up here in Minnesota over the last ten years or so-- including our great breweries here in Rochester. My wife and I love to head out and try a new craft beer, whether it's at the brewery itself or at a place that has a great variety of craft beers on tap.

And if YOU like to sample some adult beverages too, don't miss Rochester On Tap-- the largest craft beer festival in Minnesota, coming back to Mayo Civic Center for the first time in four years, on Saturday, October 30th! You can sample over 100 amazing beers from over 50 incredible craft breweries!

Now, on with the beer... Here are ten of my favorite Minnesota brews right now:
