Questions? Fire Away!

What is the Northern Ale Guide? 

The Northern Ale Guide is a passport-sized book designed to help you grow your love for Minnesota craft beer by providing BOGO pints and helpful information. 

What is included in the Northern Ale Guide?

The guide includes information on everything you need to know about craft brewing in Minnesota, including maps that lay out where each Minnesota craft brewery is located. Most importantly,  the guide includes detailed information on 70+ breweries that will give you a buy-one-get-one free beer when you show your guide at purchase. The guide adds up to over $500 worth of free beer!

How do I redeem my free beers?

Simply go to any of our partner breweries and show them their page in the guide. The first time the guide is stamped you will receive a buy-one-get-one free beer. It's like a passport, but cooler!

Can I purchase the Northern Ale Guide if I am not 21 years old?

Yes, anyone under the age of 21 can purchase the guide and gift it to someone who is of age. We ask all users to obey the laws including the minimum age to consume alcohol and that they drink responsibly! 

Can two people share one Northern Ale Guide?

Absolutely! Beer is best shared with friends, loved ones, and complete strangers. But if we are honest, when do you only have one beer? Depending on your drinking style, one guide per person might be a better option! 

Do you offer discounts for large orders?

Yes, any order of 10 guides or more are eligible for discounts. Please contact cheers@northernaleguide.com to find out more.

Why did you create the Northern Ale Guide?

We are a group of University of Minnesota students that are passionate about our state and its craft beer. We want to spread that passion and help grow the already awesome Minnesota craft brewing industry. Our goal is to show everyone the great beer that our state has to offer and eventually make Minnesota a national destination for craft beer.
