53 new drinks revealed for the 2019 Minnesota State Fair

Anyone want a White Claw Red Blue Slushie?

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.

They are:

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. 

Very Berry Frozen Hard Seltzer

Frozen hard seltzer with flavors of summer berries. 5.5% ABV. Brewed by The Freehouse in Minneapolis, sold at The Blue Barn at the West End Market.

White Claw Red Bull Slushie

Black Cherry White Claw Hard Seltzer mixed with Coconut Berry Red Bull. At O’Gara’s at the Fair at Dan Patch Avenue and Cosgrove Street.

Elsewhere, there's an abundance of new beer, cider and wines that will make their first appearance at the fair.

Here's a few notable additions:

Berry Go Round Sour

By Schell's Brewing Co., a Berliner Weise aged in cypress wood and refermented on raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. 5.0% ABV. Found at Lulu's Public House, West End Market.
