So what is a BrewFest anyways? A BrewFest is a fantastic beer tasting festival where you and your friends all receive sampling glasses and use them to taste as many pours as you like from the great breweries in attendance. Each brewer generally offers up a variety of beers for your sampling pleasure. With lots of breweries like Bent Paddle, Finnegan, Bemidji Brewing and Superior Brewing you are sure to find tastes that you will love and continue to enjoy long after the festival is over. You will also get to meet with staff from the breweries and find out everything you ever wanted to know about their unique processes and flavors. Check out our Facebook site for the full listing or breweries that will be there, stop back often as the list continues to grow.
BrewFest venues can be indoors or outdoors and the Grand Rapids areas new annual Blackwaters BrewFest is coming to Cohasset, MN’s beautiful Portage Park on the banks of the Mississippi River. BrewFests also often have a charity or cause involved and the Blackwaters BrewFest is no different. It will be hosted by the Grand Rapids Centennial Rotary Club and will benefit the Itasca Area Veterans Crisis Fund. Designated Drivers are always encouraged and welcomed and there will be non-alcoholic drinks available. There will also be a Polaris side-by-side 4wheeler raffled off at the event and you may either stop on over when you see us parked around the area or contact a Rotary member to get your raffle tickets
