What's new and boozy at the Minnesota State Fair this year

Minnesota State Fair vendors are tapping into the popularity of hard seltzers and slushies this year.Driving the news: The fair on Tuesday announced a lineup of 56 new drinks exclusive to the Great Minnesota Get-Together.Six of them are slushies and four are hard seltzers. A couple are even slushies with hard seltzer. A sign of the times. The big picture: Hard seltzers have been gaining in popularity, especially in Minnesota. But with a one-year state fair hiatus, vendors weren't able to concoct any crazy new drinks. This year, it looks like local breweries are going sweet. Look out for hard seltzers with flavors like caramel apple and cotton candy. What we're eyeing: There's also a lineup of new beers, including the Clasico Salted Lime Cream Ale by Bent Paddle. Axios' Nick Halter wants to visit the Ball Park Cafe to try that one. Audrey Kennedy wants to try the Mango Sangria from Cannon Valley Winery at the Minnesota Wine Country stand. Torey Van Oot's interested in the Outboard Motor Ale, a citrusy blonde ale by Coronado Brewing Company at Giggles’ Campfire Grill.

Cheers!: 56 new Minnesota State Fair beverages on tap

ST. PAUL -- It’s official: The new beverages at the Minnesota State Fair have eclipsed the new foods in number, if not in creativity. Although, with all the slushies, seltzers, shandies and even a grape-based beer, the range of options for imbibing is pretty staggering considering the Fair does not allow hard alcohol to be served. There are even a few fun non-alcoholic options this year.
