About 600 persons attended 2017 Prairie Brewfest.

The fourth annual Prairie Brewfest held Sept. 9, 2017 at Purgatory Creek Park in Eden Prairie was the best ever. We had 600 ticket holders enjoying craft beer, cider, cocktails, food, games, and live music in sunny and 76-degree weather.

It was another record turnout. Thank you, Eden Prairie! The proceeds will help the Eden Prairie Community Foundation in its mission to fill unmet needs in EP.

For the record, here are the brewers we had at 2017 Prairie Brewfest: 612 Brew, August Schell Brewing, Bauhaus Brew Labs, Burning Bros. Brewing, Castle Danger Brewing, Enki Brewing, Excelsior Brewing, Finnegan’s, HeadFlyer Brewing, Indeed Brewing, Insight Brewing, LTD Brewing, Lupulin Brewing, Mankato Brewery, Minneapolis Cider Company, OMNI Brewing, Surly Brewing, Unmapped Brewing, and Waconia Brewing. Wine samples were served by Barefoot Wine and cocktail samples were served by Eden Prairie’s own Flying Dutchman Spirits. You were able to get bottled water from Kowalski’s Eden Prairie Market.
