Kernza Ale Taste & Tour

Enjoy a brew and take a tour with your friends at the Twin Cities Metro Growers Network at Finnegans!

Join the TC Growers on a brewery tour featuring Finnegans’ new Buckwheat Honey Brown Kernza Ale on Thursday, March 30, 4:30-7:30 PM.

Minnesota farmers and researchers are at the forefront of developing Kernza, a perennial wheatgrass with deep roots and big benefits for our soils, waters…and culinary palates. Come check it out!

The tour will be led by Finnegans’ David McNicoll. UMN Extension staff, a Kernza specialist, and Mike Mackiewicz of Bone Lake Meadows Apiary will give us the scoop on the ale’s featured local ingredients: Kernza and Buckwheat Honey.

We’ll also raise a glass to Karl Hakanson, who has transitioned out of his role with Extension. He made the TC Growers a reality — we hope you’ll join us in thanking him!

This event is free to attend. A cash bar with beer and nonalcoholic options will also be available. Registration is requested, walkups are welcome.

Parking: There is ample metered parking and multiple pay lots within a block of Finnegans.

This event is partially supported by AFRI Sustainable Agricultural Systems Coordinated Agricultural Program (SAS-CAP) grant no. 2020-68012-31934 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
