Big brewfest at Grand View Lodge Nov. 18-20

Minnesota’s craft beer industry continues to grow, and residents can enjoy Grand Brewfest the weekend of Nov. 18-20 at Grand View Lodge on Gull Lake.
Grand Brewfest takes place at Grand View Lodge each November. The fun-filled weekend started in 2010 when the rise in craft beer was gaining momentum. The event is Grand View’s craft beer and culinary weekend to pay homage all of our state’s finest breweries.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening with an on-site pub crawl. Visitors can hop on a shuttle and tour three of Grand View’s bars: Northwoods Pub, Freddy’s Grill and Cru. Each location will have a different theme, live music, correlating beer and a full bar. Travel through different cultures with music and beer before the Saturday activities kick off.

Saturday’s activities include everything from a one-mile beer run/walk to start the day to meeting the brewery masterminds. Demos and classes are offered in the afternoon. Attendees can attend the classes of their choice, ask the brew masters questions and learn everything about craft beer. The nightcap is called the Grand Tasting and encompasses all shades of Minnesota brews available for sampling plus different flavors to sample by Grand View’s culinary team.
