The 2008 Gitchee Gumee Brewfest held in Superior, WI is scheduled for Saturday, April 5, 2008. Yeah, okay, so this is MNBeer.com and I’m posting a Wisconsin event. Deal with it. Superior is close enough to the border to let this slide. Besides, it’s a good event and does have MN beers represented. My wife and I have gone the last couple of years and have enjoyed the event. In addition to many familiar breweries, you’ll find a few that we don’t normally see at MN beer fests or in MN bars and liquor stores. The event tends to draw a much larger college crowd than some of our local events, but it isn’t necessarily rowdy. All in all it’s a good time and well worth attending. We’d like to see a few familiar faces this year, if possible. Besides, I need a little back-up if/when the MN vs. WI fisticuffs erupt. It is a Sconie beer event, after all (my apologies to all those in the great state of Wisconsin…I love ya).
