Beer lovers can finally have their cake and eat it too.
 
Mankato Brewery has brewed a new beer for the Minnesota State Fair.  The beer is being called 'Caked Up.'  It is a light, lager style brew with a fried vanilla cake-like flavor and aroma.
 
Tim Tupy, founder of Mankato Brewery, said: "The special beer is just for the fair, designed for the fair.  So we've had a lot of people asking us 'when can I get this someplace else' so the idea for this is to get you enticed and have a special beer for the fair for you to go to the state fair."
 
'Caked Up' is the largest single order the brewery has received; the exact quantity is a secret.  The Minnesota State Fair begins on August 23rd.
