Stillwater's original beer tasting event. This will be the 12th anniversary of the Brewers Bazaar and you need to be onboard the Avalon Riverboat overlooking the beautiful St. Croix River in historic downtown Stillwater on Saturday, May 19th from 11:30am-3:30pm. Your ticket gets you 4 hours to sample some of the best regional beers poured directly from the brewers. In addition, you get a commemorative pilsner glass, a food item and delicious cheese by the Bass Lake Cheese Factory. This event is host by the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club and presented by Cub Wine & Spirits. All the proceeds help support our Club's many service projects including Rotary's efforts to eradicate polio throughout the world. Talk to anyone that has attended this event in the previous 11 years and they will tell you this is one of the best parties of the year.
The following brewers participated in #11 and expected most to return for #12: Lift Bridge Brewing Company, Joseph Wolf Brewery, St Croix Brewing, Big Wood, Finnegans, Schell's Brewing, St Croix River Valley Homebrewers Association, Rush River, The Freehouse, Bent Brewstillery, Maple Island Brewing, Lake Monster, Barley John's Brewing Co., Broken Clock, Bent Paddle, Burning Brothers, Roma Brewing, Oliphant, Surly, Fair State Brewing Co-op and 45th Parallel Distillery. This equated to over 80 different beers, spirits and a few wines. And this year you can upgrade your ticket to the V.I.D. level (Very Important Drinker). A V.I.D. ticket gets you access to an exclusive and designated area on the top deck of the boat with additional snacks and beer delivered to your table. The number of V.I.D. tickets are limited.
This event has helped the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club raise over $30,000 each year to support our Club's many service projects.
Please join us again this year for the 12th anniversary of this event for some beautiful scenery, live music from The Michael Handler Project, great cheese from the Bass Lake Cheese Factory, delicious pretzels from Ursala's, coconut chicken from Joseph's, raffle prizes, great conversations and of course plenty of excellent beer.
This is a popular event with limited space. Tickets will go on sale soon so order early and don't be standing on the dock while the rest of us are enjoying the beer.
