2022 Minnesota Pint Day
On November 27, in honor of Small Brewery Sunday and Black Friday weekend, craft beer lovers are invited
On November 27, in honor of Small Brewery Sunday and Black Friday weekend, craft beer lovers are invited to visit more than 40 Minnesota craft breweries and brewpubs around the state to celebrate the 2022 Minnesota Pint Day and purchase limited-edition MN Pint Day pint glasses.
MN Pint Day was created by the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild (MNCBG), the state’s nonprofit association for craft breweries and brewpubs. The day, and the exclusive glassware, is designed to give MN craft beer fans a fun excuse to grab some friends, share a pint, and support their favorite breweries this holiday season.
“When craft beer enthusiasts gather and purchase beer, merchandise, or gift cards over the holidays, it has a huge impact for these small businesses and their communities,” says MNCBG Executive Director Jess Talley. “MN Pint Day is a great way to celebrate Small Brewery Sunday as well as to encourage fans to remember to buy local this holiday season.”
Individual businesses will decide how to celebrate MN Pint Day, what promotions to offer with their pint glasses, and how long to offer those promotions. Pint glasses can only be found at participating breweries and brewpubs while supplies last.
This year’s pint glass design was done by Marcus Paulsen of Lupulin Brewing and Big MP Design. Marcus is the recipient of numerous awards, including Best Art & Design at the MNCBG’s MN Brewer’s Cup in 2019 and 2021.

All Day (Sunday)
Minnesota has a long, diverse history in the brewing industry. At one time, it boasted over 100 small breweries that serviced their local communities. Although the numbers have dwindled, a number of craft breweries have sprung up once again serving fresh, locally produced beer. The Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild was founded in 2000 to promote Minnesota breweries, create an open line of communication between brewers, and showcase local craft beer at our events throughout the year. • In our opinion, the best beer is the freshest beer you can buy, and locally produced beer will always be freshest. • The Guild promotes Minnesota’s brewing industry by sponsoring festivals and special events that showcase the talent of our brewers. • We strive to educate the public that consuming beer is a pleasure that should be enjoyed in moderation. • Finally, it is our mission to ensure that our rich brewing tradition will be carried on for future generations to enjoy. Whether you are a native Minnesotan, a new Minnesotan, or are simply enjoying everything our beautiful state has to offer, we invite you to stop by one of our craft-breweries and enjoy a fresh pint of locally produced beer.
