The Fun has Begun at Voyageur

We are extremely pleased to celebrate our first Oktoberfest at Voyageur Brewing Company in conjunction with the Cook County Community Fund.

The Cook County Community Fund is an amazing organization that marshals local resources to benefit schools, the arts, violence prevention, historical societies, and overall community health. You can read more about the fund’s vision at work on their website.

As far as our own talents, we can make beer, cook food and sponsor games and music. Please read on to learn of all we have in store for you this weekend.

Our special Oktoberfest brew is being untapped on Thursday, September 29th at 4:30! A dollar from each sale of our Oktoberfest beer will go directly to the Cook County Community Fund. An hour later the first of many games begin. A full schedule can be found at the end of this blog entry.

Voyageur in Grand Marais, MN IMG_3087Our talented chefs have devised several new menu items available only on Oktoberfest weekend. They include a beer cheese soup made with our Boundary Waters Brunette wild rice brown ale and roasted brussell sprouts; a sausage platter including wild rice bratwurst, potato sausage, chicken with sundried tomatoes, moroccan lamb sausage served on a bed of sauerkraut with dipping sauces; and a board of housemade pretzel sticks with cheese sauce, mustard and a cream cheese beer dip. This food will give you all the energy you need to win the chicken dance contest and other fun games.

Please consider the purchase of a commemorative Oktoberfest stein from the Cook County Community Fund. They cost $30 and will benefit our beautiful area in countless ways.

Do you get all the polka music you need in Cook County? You will this weekend, when Richie Yurkovich’s Polkarioty plays tonight from 6 to 9 and again tomorrow from noon to 4. Friday night we’ll have reliable pleasure of Tim Haus, and Saturday we are happy to offer you two musical acts — Billy Johnson from 4 to 7, and Harbor Drive Hookup from 7 to 10.

Please come out and join us on what may just be the most beautiful weekend of the fall.
