Event Type

We past the 10-year milestone for this event and now it’s time for year #11. This fundraiser was one of the first and continues to be one of the best local beer tasting events. It was started and is hosted by the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club as a way to raise money for our many service projects. This year’s Brewers Bazaar will once again be onboard the Avalon Riverboat overlooking the beautiful St. Croix River in historic downtown Stillwater on Saturday, May 20th. The boat does not leave the dock during the event giving attendees flexibility to come and go as they need. We do plan to begin the event a half hour earlier this year (11:30am) to accommodate the boat’s afternoon schedule. Your ticket gets you 4 hours to sample some of the best regional beers poured directly from the brewers. In addition, you get a commemorative pilsner glass, a food item and delicious cheese by the Bass Lake Cheese Factory. Participants love the setting, the short lines, the access to the brewers, the fellowship, the music and the cause.
