ST. PAUL — Get your shot, and these local breweries, wineries and distilleries will throw in a chaser on the house.

Starting Friday, May 28, vaccinated Minnesotans can sip free or discounted brews, wine or cocktails from participating establishments thanks to a new partnership between the state, the Craft Brewers Guild and Minnesota Distillers guild.

“We’re doing this the Minnesota way — coming together to take care of each other while having a good time," Gov. Tim Walz said in a Friday news release. "Roll up your sleeves if you haven’t already, get back to your favorite spot, and cheers to the vaccine!”

Walz's office this week announced a slate of incentives hoping to convince Minnesotans who haven't already to get their COVID-19 vaccines.
