Join the SkiHawks on the East Side of St. Paul as we celebrate Octoberfest at the Yoerg Brewery.
The brewery is celebrating Octoberfest for the entire month of September and has imported special European festbiers for this event.
The Yoerg Brewery name dates to 1848 when Bavarian style beer using the caves on the West Side of St. Paul for natural aging. Yoerg was brewed in St. Paul until 1952 when the brewery was destroyed by the historic floods of that year. You can't go back to 1848, but you can still taste the beer because the resurrected Yoerg is still brewing it today.
Besides the original Yoerg brew, the owners rotate in old European classics from Germany, Austria and Belgium, as well as beers brewed by Trappist monks in the US. Yoerg's website boasts over 50 beers in stock with more on the way. Check it out here https://yoergbeer.com.
If you are not a beer drinker, there is a great selection of European and domestic wines, ciders and mead that you are sure to enjoy.
Food is available from a tasty menu of unique, locally sourced German sausages, European styled charcuterie & cheese plates as well as pizzas.
The brewery is a cozy place with character. The brewery has expanded, and their new gathering room will be open for us.
Street parking may be a bit tight. However, Metro State U's parking ramp is just across the street. Normal rates are $5, but you can get a $2 ticket at the brewery.
Come, enjoy SkiHawk camaraderie while trying this unique place. Hope to see you there!
