Event Type

Clean water unites us all. It’s the most valuable resource we have, and one that we must fight to defend. That’s why NorthGate Brewing has teamed up with the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters to create a brave new brew.

In November 2016 NorthGate released the first round of Canoe Country Cream Ale to rave reviews both from the fantastic quality and drinkability, but also from all those who agreed with the mission that clean water is a resource who’s value is incalcuable, and needs to be preserved. Now, that beer is back! And for every beer sold from 6-9pm a portion of the proceeds will go back to the BWCA as they continue​ to “speak loudly for this quiet place”!

To celebrate this re-release, we will have a number of bands, games, art, and vendors who will celebrating the Boundary Waters with us. Come out, have a drink for the BWCA, and celebrate with us. Clean Water unites us all!
