It’s that time of the year again, and we’re looking for some members to help out by bringing beer and/or serving.  This is a really fun event, with lots of people who enjoy tasting and talking about our beers.  We get in free, and get fed too!  What a perfect evening.  Let Chad or Steve know if you can help out.  Post a comment below if that works for you too.

Our club gets a pretty good billing on their advertisements…

German-style brews exclusively from Minnesota will be featured at Oktimberfest.  As craft and micro-breweries explode in popularity here in Minnesota, varieties of Oktoberfest, Marzen, Pilsner and Lager, all made in Minnesota, will showcase our state’s brewing talent.

When it comes to local brewing talent, the Boreal Brewers, our local home-brew club, will be showcasing their latest creations too.  Their unique brews, always a popular part of the event, will be sampled throughout the evening as the fire crackles and the polka music fills the night air.

See you there!

  1. Attendance was down a bit this year, probably because of the weather. It was cloudy and while not threatening rain until later in the night, and I expect that discouraged a lot of folks from coming out.

    Regardless, the rain held off, and it ending up being a nice evening. Those who did attend (about 300 or so) did have a good time. We sure did in our gazebo, where we offered tastings to lots of folks. Thanks to Mike T, Patty T, Tyler R, Chad G for bringing beer and showing up to server, and to Steve B for donating beer as well. We have a wide range of offerings, and the beer was well received.

    I look forward to it again next year!
