Fall Brew Weekend in Bayfield

Bayfield Apple FestivalNeed a reason to hit Bayfield this weekend? Perfect! The Fall Brew Weekend is happening at the Old Rittenhouse Inn in Bayfield.

This is where Old Rittenhouse Inn partners with South Shore Brewery to present a weekend of great regional beer and pub fare with a gourmet flair. Over the weekend you can celebrate the joy of fresh micro-brewed beers and delicious food. The schedule includes a beer tasting with appetizer buffet on Friday, an afternoon brewery tour and tasting on Saturday, and a 6-course dinner on Saturday night with craft brews selected to match each dish.

Bayfield is located along Highway 13 on the shores of Lake Superior, about 15 minutes north of U.S. 2. U.S. 63 brings you towards Bayfield from the Hayward, Spooner, and Twin Cities areas; U.S. 51 north through the North Woods sends you toward U.S. 2 for the connection to Bayfield, too.
