Chocolate Covered Jalepenos

For the risk takers, this spicy treat is the go-to at the Fair every year.  Serve up this chocolate covered kick with our Belgian Dubbel, Hoodoo. Complex malt and low hop bitterness combine with hidden notes of clove and banana in this beer pair nicely with any chocolate treat. The spice of the jalapeño just gives in another layer of deliciousness!

Grab your Hoodoo in the Belgian Flight at the #10kBeer Craft Beer Hall, housed in the Agriculture/Horticulture Building. The Belgian Flight also includes Witness, Saison, and Brimstone.

RUN.ROW.DRINK. – August 22

RunRowDrink_postcard_front

Some people sleep until noon on Saturdays, then eat a pile of donuts. Then there is a segment of the population that sets the alarm, seizes the day, and celebrates an active summer.  We are looking for the latter group to run a 5k starting at Boom Island Brewing.

This unconventional “triathlon” is hosted by Boom Island Brewing with Studio ME and opens 9am at the brewery Saturday, August 22. Start the adventure with a 5K run from the brewery to the rowing stations at Studio ME (located next to Tugs on St. Anthony Main). Contestants will row 150-300 meters, based on a dice roll, before continuing back to the brewery for the third installment of sport: drinking. Each runner will receive a beer, but feel free to stay for the entertainment and company.

$30 gets you registered with a T-shirt and a beer! Sign up now.

Special machines allow participants to move a circular paddle through water to simulate rowing. Here, this skilled team of models demonstrates how fun and easy it is! No previous experience is necessary to enjoy this unconventional brew run!

This is the route runner's will take for the event.
