The Minnesota State Fair 2019 rollout continued on Monday with the release of its list of new drinks coming to next month's extravaganza.
After revealing 31 new foods coming to this year's Great Minnesota Get-Together, the State Fair revealed the dishes will be joined by no fewer than 53 new drink options.
You can see the full list of new drinks here – we're not going to list them all as there are way too many – but we did pick out a few that are of particular interest.
Proving very much on trend, this year's State Fair could be the Summer of Seltzer, with three new seltzer concoctions debuting this year.
Cherry Firework Hard Seltzer
Gluten-free hard seltzer by Lift Bridge is flavored with all-natural cherries. 5.0% ABV. At Ball Park Cafe, on Underwood Street between Dan Patch and Carnes.
