Up North Beerfest« Back to Events
Walk the red carpet – literally – for Premier Beer Night from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday evening. This insider event allows participants to sample beers from a dozen breweries that will not be available during the Saturday main event. The trio Hijinx will play live music while you sip suds and enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres.
Saturday’s main event runs from 2pm to 6pm. It includes a sampling glass to taste nearly 100 different beers. A complementary beer guide will direct you to your favorite beer styles – or perhaps to styles you have yet to savor. The People’s Choice, a 9-piece band specializing in classic rock, will provide live entertainment. Food will be available for purchase from the Rotary Club of Eagle River.
Parking is available on the grounds for both events, however, many area hotels and lodging places will provide free shuttle transportation to and from Hi-Pines Campground before, during, and after the main event on Saturday. No children, pets, or carry-ins are allowed to the event. Smoking is not allowed under the tented sampling areas.
For COVID precautions, face masks are required to be worn at the event when festival goers are not drinking or eating. People attending the beer festivals are encouraged to stay in their groups and practice social distancing. Both the Friday and Saturday events will include hand sanitizing stations.
