Wicked Wort Brewing
Sometime this fall, let AARP Minnesota treat you to a beer and some fun.  We’re partnering with local breweries for several AARP On Tap events, and we'd like you to join us.  These events are great opportunities for those who want to meet and connect with other members, learn more about AARP, or simply enjoy a free brewery tour.  Make sure to bring a non-perishable food donation, and we'll buy you a beer in exchange.  We need your help fighting hunger in the Twin Cities, and this is a refreshing way to get involved.  For more information, see the specific event and registration details below.
