EVENT DETAILS:

From rolling hills, to winding roads, to picturesque rivers, Southern Minnesota is home to diverse typography and even more diverse local breweries.  Join GetKnit as we explore the all of the beautiful lands and delicious brews that this unique region has to offer with our exclusive Southern Minnesota Brewery Tour.

Your day will be begin upon arrival in Roseville, where your GetKnit Gurus will be eagerly awaiting with coffee and pastries to help jump start your morning.  A deluxe motor-coach will serve as our chariot as we travel south to explore this magnificent land of golden corn and beers.

Our first stop will be at legendary August Schell Brewing Company in New Ulm.  Upon arrival, we will embark on our private tour of the historic brewery that has been producing “German craft beer” for 6 generations.  From there, we will sample a round of just a few of the over 100 beers they have brewed since 1860 and have some free time to wander the Gift Haus.

Next, we will make our way to Mankato Brewery where we will be greeted with more brews and an energetic staff who is passionate about their beer and the town in which they brew it.  Our beer tastings will be complemented by a savory pizza and salad buffet lunch from local favorite, Dino’s Pizzeria.  An optional tour will round-out our filling stop in Mankato.

From there, we will make our way to northeast to F-Town Brewing, which is located in historic downtown Faribault.  Here, we will sample some suds and hear more about how this new brewery is looking to reignite, pursue to perfect, and blaze a new trail of brewing high quality beer that began in this town in 1856.

Next we will head to nearby Rochester and visit one of the newest taprooms to open in Rochester, LTS (Life’s Too Short) Brewing Company, where we will be treated to some small-batch lagers and ales.  An optional tour will present an opportunity to learn more about this new-comer to the Minnesota brewery scene.

As we travel further into Rochester, we will quickly arrive at Forager Brewery located in trendy Kutzky Market.  Here, we will taste some of their unique beers made with fresh ingredients “foraged” from local farms in Southeastern Minnesota.

Grand Rounds Brewpub will serve as our last stop for the day and we will be treated with several more tastings accompanied by a delicious dinner served in an establishment which the staff hopes you will find as “a gathering place, a true neighborhood pub where folks feel welcome, where anyone and everyone can meet and have a good discussion…”  Options for your feast include Jams & Cheddar Dog, Historic 3rd St. Burger, Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, House made Mac & Cheese, Thai Chicken Salad, or Mn-phis Smoked Chicken.

Each leg of our journey will present new tastes and experiences while the ride from location to location will offer opportunities to build community among other beer-lovers, win prizes in beer-trivia, and  perhaps crack open a few growlers as we enjoy the open fields, rolling hills, and charming towns of Southern Minnesota.  On the last part of our journey, we think you will find yourself reflecting back on a day full of new brews, new experiences, and new drinking buddies – and trust that you will agree that each of these places was well worth the trip to this unique region of our great state.
