This is not just another beer festival. This one's unique for several reasons. One reason is its setting aboard the Avalon Riverboat. Overlook the beautiful St. Croix River in historic downtown Stillwater on a sunny Saturday afternoon in May while enjoying delicious craft brews. Another reason is its value. Your ticket gets you 4 hours to sample some of the best regional beers poured directly from the brewers themselves. The following brewers are scheduled to participate this year: Lift Bridge Brewing Company, Joseph Wolf Brewery, St Croix Brewing, Lucid Brewing, Pitchfork Brewing, Finnigans, Mankato Brewing, Tin Whiskers, Lake Monster Brewing, Schell's Brewing, Summitt Brewing, Rush River Brewing, Still-H2O / St Croix River Valley Homebrewers Association, Brau Brothers, The Freehouse, American Sky, Barley John’s, Bent Brewstillery, Indeed Brewing, Kinney Creek Brewery, Big Wood, Maple Island Brewing and Surly. In addition, you'll get a commemorative pilsner glass and a brat. The final reason is its cause. This event is presented by the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club and raises over $30,000 each year to help support our Club's many service projects.
Please join us next year for the 10th anniversary of this event for some beautiful scenery, live music, great cheese from the Bass Lake Cheese Factory, raffle prizes, great conversations and of course plenty of excellent beer.
This is a popular event with limited space. We sell out in advance each year and we expect to do so again in 2016. Tickets will go on sale shortly so order early and don't be standing on the dock while the rest of us are enjoying the beer.
