The making of Summit Brewing’s State Fair IPA

In celebration of “The Great Minnesota Get-Together,” the craft brewers at St. Paul’s Summit Brewing have created a special State Fair IPA. In the video below, brewer Jeff Williamson discusses the special Minnesota ingredients that went in to the beer: hops from Hugo, honey from the Twin Cities, wild rice from McGregor, and — because it’s the State Fair, after all — a little bit of corn.

If you want to try the State Fair IPA, Summit’s tapping one keg each day at 1 p.m. at their booth in the Inernational Bazaar. You might want to plan ahead; Twitter reports from the fair’s first day suggested the beer sold out in 20 minutes.
