SAUK RAPIDS -- It was a toast to end the summer as beer lovers raised their glasses for the America on Tap beer festival this (Saturday) afternoon.

"Having a great time, beautiful weather, great beer," says Ryan.

"It's a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but there is a lot packed in here," says Matthew.

Over 100 different craft beers were available to sample at the Benton County Fairgrounds, included some fan favorites and new varieties.

"I would says the Organic Honey Chocolate was my favorite," says Cindy.

"There is a lot of new variety that I haven't tried before and a lot of beers I was nervous on but turned out really good," says Wendy.

The three hour drew a large crowd and fans are already calling for another round next year.

"Oh absolutely I'll be here next year," says Micky.

"All the beers are good, we are looking forward to next year," says Cindy.

So until America on Tap comes back to town again next year, it's time to pop-a-top and enjoy a cold one.
