Postponed hard seltzer festival will now happen at a St. Paul golf course

The organizers of 'Seltzerland' have tried to come up with a socially distant alternative.

A touring hard seltzer festival that was due in the Twin Cities in April only to be postponed due to COVID-19 has announced a new date and a new venue for the event.

Cannonball Productions has announced that its six-date tour of Seltzerland will go ahead, and to ensure social distancing will be held at golf courses.

The event was due to go ahead in Minneapolis' Quincy Hall in April, but will now happen on September 12 at Phalen Park Golf Course in St. Paul.

The organizers now say that the event will see attendees "leisurely walk 9 holes at each course while safely sampling from 50+ flavors of hard seltzer."

"Guests will be able to socially distance in groups of 10 or less and spread out across each course’s fairways," Cannonball Productions says in its press release.

The organizers says vendors and staff must wear protective gloves "and regularly handwash," with ticket holders also encouraged to wash hands and sanitize regularly, and wear a face mask when not sampling.

Attendees within different time slots must also keep 6 feet of difference between each other, while restrooms will have a "devoted porter" to clean between uses.

"Tee times" for the event will be available every 10 minutes on the day, with the whole experience lasting 2.5 hours. It costs $59 for general admission and $99 for VIP (better timeslots, a complimentary can of seltzer, food, a specialty cocktail, and free parking).
