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)
