Nershfest 2018 was a banger of a party. Thank you all for making the day one for the books.

We drank out of color-changing cups, pounded our lineup of five cans out in the road, and raised a glass to talented local musicians.

The day kicked off with a sing-along led by Beer Choir, then Ali & The Scoundrels serenaded our hearts. Ginstrings picked their way through the afternoon, causing more than one square dance. As the sun set, General B & The Wiz melted our faces (and bruised their own, but it was worth it). You finished the night by getting even wilder at the taproom after party with DJ Bob Marino.

We all noshed on local food trucks throughout the day: Reverie, R Taco, Hibachi Daruma, and Fro Yo Soul. With an all-day fest (and all-day beer), it wasn't hard to hit them all.

You also got to hang with Minneapolis Bouldering Project, get the pass to dog-friendly MN with Sidewalk Dog, tune up the ol' bike with JV Bike Repair, and get a coffee buzz from City Girl Coffee.

We're always grateful for our North Loop and Minneapolis neighbors, and we're even more grateful for a good party. Thanks for a beautiful #Nershfest; we'll see you next year.
