Lakes & Legends will shut down a street so people can celebrate fall, drink beer

The brewery will have special beers for its first Harvest Fest.

A Minneapolis brewery is throwing a block party – with special beers – to celebrate the harvest.

Lakes & Legends Brewing Company is shutting down part of 14th Street in Minneapolis to host its first ever Harvest Fest Block Party on Sept. 9. 

The free event will feature special beers that'll be released throughout the day, and the brewery will also be pouring its flagship beers both in the taproom and outside from a tap truck. 

As for what those special beers will be, Ethan Applen of Lakes & Legends told GoMN they're still finalizing things and will announce more details as the event gets closer. But the plan is to spotlight various local ingredients in one-off versions of their beers.

At the event there will be a craft market featuring local creators; live music from local artists Jillian Rae, The Federales, and Good Morning Bedlam; and food from the Flagsmash and Butcher Salt food trucks.

The event will run from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. For more information, click here.

Lakes & Legends focuses on local

Lakes & Legends works with local growers a lot. In fact, it's the only brewery to be a member of Minnesota Grown – a program to help show consumers what products are made in Minnesota – thanks to all the local ingredients the brewery uses.

Applen told GoMN earlier this year it's just a "much cooler experience" working with a local farmer, noting they can tell the brewery when flavors change, or help collaborate on a beer with ingredients they think "might be neat" in a drink.

And the Harvest Fest Block Party will highlight those local growers. There will be a farmers market featuring the growers the brewery works with on its North- and farm-inspired beers. Minnesota Grown will also be there to talk about Minnesota’s farm heritage.
