We’re looking forward to a white Christmas in Cook County. There’s some snow in Grand Marais near Lake Superior but most of the snow can be found over the hill. Folks have been out cross-country skiing, ice fishing, downhill skiing and ice skating. It’s the perfect place to enjoy all things winter.
If you prefer biking in the winter then you should come visit us. There are a number of places to ride and the Norpine Fat Bike Classic
is January 5th. We’ll be pouring beer for participants on January 4th during their check in and registration.
Another form of winter recreation popular in our neck of the woods is dog sledding. The Gunflint Mail Run
takes place January 4-6th and we’re having a volunteer meeting in the taproom on Wednesday, January 2nd at 7:00pm. We have a limited supply of our Sled Hound Session IPA- Gunflint Mail Run Edition. It’s a double dry-hopped version of our great tasting Sled Hound. One dollar from every pint sold from now until the race is donated to the Gunflint Mail Run so we hope you’ll join us in supporting this awesome event.
The Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon
doesn’t happen until the end of the month but you can purchase a commemorative glass
now. The $10 purchase includes a free pint of beer at Voyageur and proceeds go to the Beargrease. On Wednesday, January 9th Beargrease representatives including a musher and sled dog will be at Voyageur. Find out more about the race and about volunteering.
Our 750ml bottles of Lost Compass are available for $16 while supplies last. The attractive bottle boasts beautiful artwork by local artist Betsy Bowen
. It makes a perfect gift for a craft beer lover and will surely be a hit at your next gathering. Get your bottle before they are gone.
Icelandite Coastal Fen
We’ll be in St. Cloud at the Craft Beer Tour on Saturday, January 19th and we’d love to see you there or up here in our taproom in Grand Marais. If you happen to be in Grand Marais then be sure to take part in a walk and talk about a very special place in Cook County. It’s known as an Icelandite Coastal Fen. You can find out more about it and any of our events on Facebook.
We currently have a number of delicious beers on tap including Sled Hound Session IPA, Sled Hound Mail Run Edition, Brule River Blonde, Thirsty Camper Vienna Style Lager, Mexican Porter, Lost Compass British Imperial Stout and our four flagships. We’ll be releasing Jock Mock Heller Bock soon and we can’t wait for you to try it.
Here’s wishing everyone Happy Holidays
and all the best in the New Year!
