The All Pints North Brewfest is sponsored by the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild.  Its held annually in late July (2014 was the third) at Bayfront Park in Duluth. Included are unlimited craft beer (and some craft soda) samples from Guild member and selected non-member breweries.  Food trucks, beer education sessions, games, and live music are also available.  Must be 21 to attend. This is a laid back fun brewfest held outdoors at Bayfront Park.  Probably best to not count on getting tickets at the door,  they sold out this year (2014).
