I'd really like to be there for the debut because it would mean I'd get to eat (again) at the Minnesota State Fair.

Maybe Kristin could pipe in about his system and future distribution plans?

Thanks guys! 20bbl system so it's a good size. Just distribution in MN for now. Stan just about sized up the state fair. It had something like 2 million visitors in 12 days last year. To my understanding well have the only craft beer in the whole fair under 4%, let alone 3.5%.
