Crow Wing County Fair Sells $8,700 In Beer


Evidently 3.2 will do when it comes to the Crow Wing County Fair.

With the five-day fair wrapped up Crow Wing County Commissioner Bill Brekken reported that beer sales at the fair brought in about $8,700. The Crow Wing County Fair, seemingly one of the largest attended fairs in Minnesota was also one of the last fairs to allow beer sales. Historically, the application for beer sales during the fair had been denied, but this year the application was approved to sell 3.2 percent beer at the grandstands and in a fenced in area by the Mills Free Stage.

Selling $8,700 worth of 3.2 brew isn’t bad at all. Authorities stated that the beer sales were handled very well.
