Drop everything. The colorful palette of the north is calling your name… and your belly. Jump in the car (make a reservation first!) and head north for some fine imbibing and delicious wild game. Oh, and the colors aren’t bad this time of year, either.
You’ve got a few options, too. If you book a Wild Game Weekend package at Grand Superior Lodge, you’ll have access to a special Friday-night reception with chef-prepared appetizers, beer from the always-awesome Castle Danger Brewery in Two Harbors as well as a Scotch and Whiskey sampling. Packages start at at $127.25/person for the weekend, so it’s really reasonable for a place like Grand Superior Lodge. Not ready to commit to the full package? Saturday’s dinner is $50 a person and features a wide array of wild game paired with beer from South Shore Brewery in Ashland Wisconsin. Brewer Bo Belanger will be on hand to to chat about the beers as well. More details below…
