    Citypages is March 31st, St. Paul is June 7th. I doubt I will go to beer fests 3 weeks in a row (including the Desert Moines fest on 6-14) so I need to choose between these 2.
    I haven't been to the Citypages fest. Have been to the St. Paul fest a couple times. Is Citypages any good?

    St Paul without a doubt. I haven't been to the City Pages fest in a number of years but was completely underwhelmed by their selection last time I did attend.

    Beerfests in Minnesota kinda bite because breweries that don't distribute here can't bring any beer. Same reason there isn't a kick ass selection of guest taps at Darkness day. Damn pointless Minnesota laws.

    Thanks for all the info. I have never heard anything good about the Citypages fest, I am surprised it keeps happening.
