AARP Minnesota is partnering with local food shelves and local breweries to make a difference. Join us for On Tap, a food drive to support local food shelves while allowing participants to enjoy a local brew and learn about the Twin Cities brewing scene. Anyone contributing a non-perishable food item will receive a free beer, along with a small group tour of the brewery from a knowledgeable member of the brewery staff.
Your feedback is valuable! Take our survey to help us plan future On Tap events (answers will be anonymous).

The 3rd Act Brewery was the first of three AARP Fall On Tap brewery events. Over 80 people attended this new brewery in Woodbury. Our members enjoyed a great brew hall atmosphere. Along with some tasty beers, our members were able to grab house oven-baked pizzas. See you at the next AARP On Tap event at Schrams Haus in Chaska or Wooden Hill Brewery in Edina.
