Compiled from their event website/Facebook pages:

The 3rd annual Benson Beer Fest will take over Maple St. outside of Jake's Cigars in the heart of the Benson Business District this Saturday afternoon, June 7th.
You’ll find a staggering selection of high-quality craft-brewed beer from all over the world, with a special concentration on Midwest regional producers. An event ticket grants you a glass and access to unlimited samples from over 80 participating beer tables covering a wide range of regional microbrews, imported beers, and area homebrew clubs.

The story of Benson Beer Fest:

One afternoon, over a round of beers, the managers of Jake’s & Krug Park noted the astronomical rise of interest in Craft-Beer. Americans are drinking Pale Ales, Stouts, Ciders and more. But, many beer festivals serve the same-old stale lagers and craft-imposters. So, we decided to step in and do it right. Benson Beer Festival is all about the beer. With a sharp focus on quality-made Craft and Import Beers, we’re a bit different. We select each beer with careful attention. We try hard to provide a wide-array of beers and ciders, light to dark, sweet to dry and everything in-between. You’ll also notice a large section of Benson Beer Fest devoted to Home-Brewers. Working with local Home-Brewer Clubs, we present a unique opportunity for them to present their creations to the public.
Benson Beer Festival is produced by Jake’s Cigars & Spirits and Krug Park, with support from The Waiting Room and Beercade. All profits go to making next years fest bigger and better.

Advance tickets are available online here and are also for sale at both Jake's Cigars or Krug Park located in Benson.
