If you're planning on visiting the Minnesota State Fair but lamenting it sells only 3.2% "near beer," relax. Things have changed.
Fair officials have announced they will allow full-strength beer at the August event in response to fairgoers' complaints about paying full-beer prices for half-strength beer.
Officials say they don't expect problems with drunkenness, and point out that strong beer is already available at other Minnesota events including Taste of Minnesota, the Basilica Block Party, and at the Metrodome.
