Get to know Pert Near Sandstone:


Hailing from Minneapolis / St. Paul, Minnesota and established in 2003, Pert’ Near Sandstone plays American stringband music that melds old-time sensibilities with modern song craft. Founded by four childhood friends, Pert Near’s chemistry harkens back to the family bands of yesteryear. They play with infectious energy and an undeniable joy that cuts straight to the heart. They are tireless stewards of the midwest roots music community, and proud co-founders and hosts of the Blue Ox Music Festival. Gathered around a single microphone, Pert Near has delivered their unique brand of stringband music to fans across generations and genres all over the world. They keep traditional songs from the American Canon alive, write new songs that sound like they’ve always been with us and their influence can be heard across the musical landscape of the midwest and beyond.

More about Barbaro:


Barbaro’s music is at once lively and intimate, perfect for twirling around the dance floor or cooking with someone you love. The Minneapolis-Winona quartet have built momentum around their dynamic sound, each set flowing naturally between energetic jams and contemplative interludes. Their upcoming album, due out spring 2019, showcases their captivating songwriting, layered over textures pulled from bluegrass, jazz, pop, and country-western.

Barbaro has performed at premier Midwest music festivals including Blue Ox, Boats & Bluegrass, and MBOTMA. In 2018, the band released their first EP and claimed two contest wins, at the John Hartford Memorial Festival Band Contest and MBOTMA’s Americana Roots Band Contest.

Say, "Hello, again!" to 1.21 Gigahops:


This Double IPA pours a hazy burnt gold color with a thick, white head that lingers in the glass. The aroma and flavor are dominated by ripe tropical fruits, citrus and pine sap. It is mash hopped with Centennial, first wort hopped with Cascade plus huge late hop additions and dry hopping with Chinook, Cascade, Mosaic, and Falconer's Flight. With over seven pounds of hops per barrel, this is an intensely hoppy beer but remains very drinkable!
