This is Stillwater's original beer tasting event and this year we're adding a few spirits to the menu. We believe this to be one of the best in the Twin Cities and attendees and brewers agree. It was started and is hosted by the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club as a way to raise money for our many service projects. We'll once again be aboard the Avalon Riverboat overlooking the beautiful St. Croix River in historic downtown Stillwater on Saturday, May 18th. The boat does not leave the dock during the event giving attendees flexibility to come and go as they need. Your ticket gets you 4 hours to sample some of the best and newest regional beers and spirits 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. Participants love the setting, the short/no lines, the access to the brewers, the fellowship, the music and the cause.

Here is a list of the brewers who were pouring last year on the boat. We expect most to return and we'll post an updated list as the event date approaches:
  • Lift Bridge Brewery
  • St Croix River Valley Homebrewers Assoc.
  • Bent Brewstillery
  • 45th Parallel Distillery
  • Joseph Wolf Brewery
  • Roma Brewing
  • Lake Monster Brewing
  • Big Wood Brewery
  • Omni Brewing
  • Urban Growler Brewing
  • Maple Island Brewing

  • St Croix Brewing Company
  • Summit Brewing
  • Bent Paddle Brewing
  • Rush River Brewing
  • Burning Brothers Brewery
  • Fair State Brewery Coop
  • Pryes Brewing Company

This list equated to over 80 different beers and spirits. Your $45 ticket buys you access to each of them and all decks of the boat.

The popular V.I.D. tickets are back again and available for $75. V.I.D.s (Very Important Drinkers) have access to an exclusive and designated area on the boat with snacks and drinks delivered to your table. VIDs will tell you it's worth the extra cost. Only a certain number of VID tickets will be issued.

Designated driver tickets for $15 are also available.

We realize there other beer events on this same day, but give the Brewers Bazaar a try - you won't be disappointed. Order your tickets now.
