Stillwater's original beer tasting event. This will be the 11th 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 20th. 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 brat 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 10 years and they will tell you this is one of the best parties of the year.
The following brewers participated in last year's event: Lift Bridge Brewing Company, Joseph Wolf Brewery, St Croix Brewing, Big Wood, Finnegans, Schell's Brewing, Summit Brewing, St Croix River Valley Homebrewers Association, Rush River, Omni Brewing, The Freehouse, Bent Brewstillery, Maple Island Brewing, Lake Monster, Barley John's Brewing Co., Broken Clock, Swinging Bridge, Bent Paddle, Burning Brothers, Roma Brewing, Oliphant, Surly, Fair State Brewing Co-op and 45th Parallel Distillery. This equated to over 80 different beers. 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. Overall, this event sells out each year so order your tickets now.
This event has helped the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club raise over $40,000 last year to support our Club's many service projects.
Please join us again this year for the 11th 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, 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 2017. 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.
The Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club is proud to welcome Cub Wine & Spirits as the title sponsor for the 11th Annual Brewers Bazaar. Stillwater and Cub go together so we are very excited for their support of this event. We've had excellent support for this event from many loyal sponsors that have been with us from year one. Having Cub Wine & Spirits step forward and join us with their generous sponsorship only enhances the event and allows our Rotary Club to direct more proceeds to our local and international service projects. This is truly beneficial to all concerned. Thank you Cub!
