Bayfield, WI Fall Color Photo Blog

This fall I had fun sneaking away from work during the afternoon to “hunt trees.” Fall color came late to Bayfield this year, which was nice because we actually had (some) time to enjoy it! This first one is one of my very favorite trees in Bayfield, up on 5th street by the old courthouse building.

Fall Brew Weekend Oct 29-30

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Things to Do in Bayfield WI - Fall Brew WeekendWe’re excited to announce our 15th annual Fall Brew Weekend, coming up the weekend of October 29-30, 2010. This is always one of our favorite events, because it gives us the chance to pair up with Ashland’s South Shore Brewery. Representatives from SSB will be at all three events over the course of the weekend.

The fun starts Friday night with a beer tasting and appetizer party featuring at least seven different brews and some of our very best appetizer selections, served buffet style. Brewer (and guitarist extraordinaire) Nathan Bean of South Shore Brewery will be on hand to discuss the flavor profiles of the different brews, and if we’re really nice, perhaps favor us with a song or two!?!

After a full breakfast on Saturday morning, we’ll take a shuttle bus over to Ashland to tour the brewery, sample all of the SSB brews on tap, and have a pub lunch (on your own) at the SSBs sister business, Deepwater Grille.

Saturday night is the Fall Brew Dinner, featuring six courses of gourmet cuisine paired with regional brews and hosted by brew master Bo Belanger. We’re still working on the menu, but past years have featured some amazing dishes including pan seared sturgeon with venison prosciutto and balsamic reduction, chateau briand, braised short ribs, and seared duck breast with wild plum glaze.

Events may be attended separately, or as part of a weekend package that includes all the events plus full breakfast each morning. This super-fun weekend is filling up fast, so if this sounds like your mug of brew, call soon!
