Two weeks from this Friday fans of Minnesota's craft beer industry have another reason to raise a glass in both celebration and unity. Minnesota's Pint Day is coming Black Friday, November 24th, and the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild has released a map of all participating breweries!

According to the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild website, Pint Day is about grabbing some buddies, heading to a local brewery, and drinking something local.

Kick off Black Friday weekend by sharing a fresh pint with friends at your local brewery! That’s the idea behind the Guild’s MN Pint Day – giving MN craft beer fans a fun excuse to grab some friends, share a pint, and support your favorite breweries.

Stop by craft breweries and brewpubs to collect this year’s official MN Pint Day glassware and taste the new MN Pint Day statewide beer.

What's new this year is that there will be some participating breweries that will be serving up a statewide beer celebrating Pint Day called MN Pint Day Golden Ale. Pint glasses for purchase seem to vary by location.
