Oktoberfest Game Feed & Craft Brew Festival

Enjoy tasting the best game and craft brews the Northwoods has to offer!

October 4-6, 2019

Join us up in the Northwoods for a weekend of eating gourmet game foods and washing it down with a variety of local craft beers.

Friday night we’ll start the weekend with Flights & Bites – a social hour pairing game-themed hors d’oeuvres with a chance to sample our new fall wine menu. Saturday you’ll have plenty of time for all the activities Gunflint Lodge has to offer: ziplining on the Towering Pines Canopy Tour, trail rides through the forest, or paddling or fishing in the local lakes. The fall colors will be in their prime and you may spot a moose coming down from the highlands. Then we’ll all meet up at Justine’s at Gunflint Lodge to enjoy a five-course gourmet meal of game meats and other local delicacies, each perfectly paired with a local craft beer. Chef Adam Treeful has now announced the 2019 menu!
