Grand Brewfest takes place at Grand View Lodge each November. This fun filled weekend started in 2010 when the rise in craft beer was gaining momentum. The event is Grand View’s craft beer and culinary weekend to pay homage all of our state’s finest breweries.

The weekend kicks off Friday evening with a party in the Norway Center. Saturday’s activities include everything from a one-mile beer run/walk to start the day to meeting the brewery masterminds. And of course, the night cap, the Grand Tasting. This tasting encompasses all shades of MN brews available for sampling plus includes different flavors to sample by Grand View’s culinary team. It is the perfect weekend to warm up before the winter!
