2008 Gitchee Gumee Brewfest

The 2008 Gitchee Gumee Brewfest held in Superior, WI is scheduled for Saturday, April 5, 2008. Yeah, okay, so this is 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).

    I’ve been going to this one for years. Always a great time. Make sure to get your tickets early and make sure you show up to the event early as the line gets well over a block long right before the doors open. See you guys there again this year.

    If you like the GG Brewfest in the Spring, there is also the Big Lake Brewfest at the same venue in Superior in the Fall. This year’s BLB is this weekend, Sept 22. Not sure if there are any tickets left. Many of the same breweries as the GGB, and just as much fun.
