Beer Dabbler, the company behind the popular all-you-can-drink beer festivals of the same name, is launching a new event this summer. 

The Reverse Beer Dabbler is a "new, small-scale and intimate festival experience" set for Aug. 7 in a tent outside Keg and Case Market in St. Paul.

It's a "seated sampling experience," where festivalgoers will sit at a table and the beer samples will be brought to them. 

The event will feature 16 breweries and cideries offering about 70 different beers and ciders for sampling. They'll use Gorilla Carts filled with ice to cart the beverages from table to table, allowing for table-side sampling.

Beer Dabbler says this is the perfect event for people who love trying new beer but don't like waiting in lines. This style of festival will also allow festivalgoers more time to chat with brewers and their representatives about each drink they're sampling, with the company noting it's a more "relaxed and informative" event. 

There will be two, three-hour sampling sessions that are limited to 260 guests. Included with your ticket is a meal — the brunch session (11 a.m.-2 p.m.) will include breakfast from Hope Breakfast Bar, while the dinner session (4-7 p.m.) will feature a menu from Woodfired Cantina. 

Tickets go on sale at noon on Friday for $70 each. You can reserve a table for groups of two ($140), four ($280) or six ($420) people. Buy tickets online here
