The Minnesota State Fair is rolling out 46 new beverages for attendees to try this year.

In all, the Great Minnesota Get-Together boasts over 300 drink options, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The fair already released nearly 40 new foods and 10 vendors that will make their debuts at the 2022 event.

The fair will be debuting a new non-alcoholic brew in 2022 called the "All Day A-Fair!"
