This weekend Whitefish hosts its annual Whitefish Winter Carnival and beer will be playing a big role in the festivities.
On Thursday, Bayern Brewing is in town at Great Northern Brewing and will be holding a pint night from 6-10 p.m. with Face Plant specials and gear and glassware for sale. Then on Saturday, Bayern will be at Whitefish Mountain Resort sponsoring the Rail Jam and giving away gear.
Also on Saturday, Black Star presents the Black Star Beer Barter (as seen earlier), where contestants can barter for a year’s supply of Black Star Double Hopped Golden Lager – 1,248 bottles (52 cases). Judges will rate the offers based on “creativity, awesomeness, thoughtfulness and enthusiasm,” and then pick a winner. Black Star also tapped beer writer/blogger the Beer Wench for the event as one of the judges. Those interested must enter between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday at Great Northern Brewing. The winner will be announced later in the evening.
I really wish I could go up to Whitefish this weekend, but work calls. To those who are taking part, please have fun for me.
