A Minnesota-made hard cider is making its debut at the Sundance Film Festival

Celebrity chefs will pair Loon Juice with some fancy meals.

Celebrities will be sipping on some Minnesota-made beverages at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend.

Loon Juice and Four Daughters (they're both made at the same vineyard in Spring Valley, Minnesota) will be poured at two exclusive parties during this year's festival. It'll be Loon Juice's debut at Sundance, while Four Daughters is returning for the third year (last year the wine was named the official provider).

One of the exclusive events where the beverages will be served is ChefDance – five nights of exclusive, multi-course meals prepared by celebrity chefs, who will be creating dishes to pair with Loon Juice, Kristin Osborne, of Four Daughters, told GoMN.

ChefDance has been named one of the five hot spots at Sundance this year, with Four Daughters writing on Facebook that "it's cool that Four Daughters wine and Loon Juice cider will be the drinks paired" with the dinners.

Loon Juice's original Honeycrisp cider, Ginger Mojito and Strawberry Shandy ciders will be poured at ChefDance, along with three Four Daughters wines: ITBDX, Polygon Rose and Chardonnay, Osborne said.

The beverages will also be featured at the Indie Lounge, where private parties are held throughout the festival. Osborne says celebrities come in and out of the lounge throughout the day to do interviews about the movies they're promoting at the festival.

"These very private parties are an awesome place to showcase your brand and get in front of an influential audience," Osborne said.

Osborne said she and her husband will be at Sundance this weekend to go to the parties and will "be posting plenty of pictures on Facebook."

Sundance Film Festival is held annually in Park City, Utah. This year's event runs from Jan. 19-29, and some major celebrities including Jay Z, Anne Hathaway, Jon Hamm, Casey Affleck and Kristen Stewart are expected to visit to promote their projects, Us Weekly says.
