Don’t overspend on beer, pop and water at the Minnesota State Fair!

Prices listed below are from the 2019 State Fair…stay tuned for an updated article!

$6.50 for 20 ounce taps and $4.00 for 12 ounce taps of Miller Lite, Coors Lite, Michelob Golden Light and Grain Belt.

12 ounce tap of Summit or Grain Belt Blu is $5.

$5 Corona, Blue Moon, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, White Claw and others.
