The days are getting shorter and the temperatures a little cooler in Grand Marais. We had the first fire in the fireplace at Voyageur Brewing Company’s taproom on Friday. I’m not sure it was needed but it sure does make the taproom feel cozy.
Oktoberfest is coming soon, do you have your lederhosen and dirndl pressed and ready to wear? We have Polkarioty joining us again this year and the Singing Slovenes from Duluth for double the music. We’ll have the big tent set up in the parking lot and invite you to spend time in there each day of Oktoberfest.
The Plein Air artists will be showing their works in the brewery on Wednesday, September 11th so be sure to stop in to see their work.
On Friday, September 20th there will be jazz and more for Celebrate the Night Sky Week.
Certified Personal Trainer Carmen Anderson is offering brewery boot camps this fall. It’s a fun workout with kegs incorporated into the exercises. A $10 fee gets you a fabulous 45 minute workout and a pint of beer afterwards.
Yoga on the rooftop patio continues as well with Mindy on Saturdays. We’ll move inside if the weather demands it so sign up and show up, you’ll be happy you did.
I don’t know about you but I love a good laugh. We hope you’ll join us for one or both of our comedy nights in the brewery. The North American Comedy Brewery Tour is coming to Voyageur on Thursday, October 24th and Wednesday, November 27th.
Tickets can be purchased for $10 in advance online.
