Sponsorship

The 7th annual Rochester Craft Beer Expo will be held at the Mayo Civic Center on Saturday May 5th, 2018 from 3-6pm (early admission at 2pm). The expo will showcase the offerings of craft breweries here in Minnesota, as well as from across the United States. Attendees at the expo will have the opportunity to sample beers from over 40 different craft breweries in a commemorative sampling glass. In addition, enjoy education seminars, live music, and food vendors. With brewery and distributor representatives on hand to answer questions, attendees will be able to have an enjoyable and educational experience learning about beer, its components, and flavors.

The Rochester Craft Beer Expo is much more than beer! Our Education Tent will host educational seminars throughout the day covering subjects such as Food Pairing, Homebrewing, and the History of Brewing in Minnesota. Food vendors will be offering tasty treats to pair with beer and live music acts will perform throughout the fest.

All Chop Liver Craft Beer Festivals have a different charity associated with each event in an effort to give back and further support the specific community.

The Rochester Craft Beer Expo is organized by Chop Liver Craft Beer Festivals Inc, who for the past 8 years have put on successful and sell-out events like the Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest, Mankato Craft Beer Expo, St Paul Summer Beer Fest and Sioux Falls Craft Beer Expo.

We hope that you will find a sponsorship package suits your needs and is ideal for your business getting maximum exposure. If you have any questions or ideas to garner more attention to your brand, please let us know. We are looking forward to working with you.
