Bock Fest 2017 – March 9-11
Bock Fest ~ Come to Fitger’s Courtyard to experience our German celebration of Spring. Check out our beautiful fire ring while you’re here.
Gather round the campfire and enjoy a legendary Lake Superior Split Rock Bock beer . . . so good . . . be sure to get it “poked” by our friendly fire tenders. Poking your bock beer with a red hot poker fresh out of the camp fire caramelizes it, enhancing the flavor while warming it a bit – once you try it, you’ll be hooked!
Invite your friends and join our 2017 Spring celebration (must be 21 and over to drink beer)
