Grand Brewfest

NOVEMBER 22-24, 2019

Event Details

Grand Brewfest takes place at Grand View Lodge each November. This 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 live music. Saturday’s activities include everything from a one-mile beer run/walk to start the day to meeting the brewery masterminds. In the afternoon we have demos and classes to engage in. You can attend the classes of your choice, ask the brew masters questions and learn everything you need to know about craft beer. And of course, the night cap, the Grand Tasting. This tasting encompasses all shades of MN brews available for sampling plus includes different flavors to sample by Grand View’s culinary team. It is the perfect weekend to warm up before the winter!
