Magnum Entertainment Group to Pour Fernson Brewing Beers at RNC Parties


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — This summer from July 18-21, 2016, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican National Convention. And Fernson Brewing Company of Sioux Falls will be there.

Magnum Entertainment Group, Inc. has chosen Fernson as their exclusive craft beer for a party featuring six bands over three nights at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH.

“Magnum’s sponsors represent a global group of leading business and non-profit organizations who thoroughly know and enjoy great brews,” says Magnum Managing Partner Jeffrey Kimbell. “After an extensive tasting process, we went with the best in the market and a brand we know they will enjoy—Fernson.”

With an expected attendance of 1,000 people each night, Fernson Brewing Company is thrilled to be a part of Magnum’s events.

“We are excited to be able to represent our state in such a big way,” says co-owner and brewer Derek Fernholz. “This will give our beer a lot of exposure, and we are honored to have been chosen.”

“It’s a huge step for us,” says co-owner and brewer Blake Thompson. “Launching our brand in a new market is exhilarating. We can’t wait to see how our beers resonate with RNC attendees from across the country. This is our first time on a national stage – people from every state will be in attendance.”
