FlipKey, a division of Trip Advisor, has named Eagle River’s Great Northern Beer Festival one of the Top 10 Summer Beer Festivals in the country.
Festival organizer Bill Summers gives credit to the festival location and other factors that allowed the Great Northern Beer Festival to be included in the list. “To make this list you have to have a great location, and the festival grounds at Hi-Pines Campground is perfect for this event,” he said. “Add to that the great group of volunteers we have every year, the music and food and, most importantly, the quality of the breweries we have attending.”
This year’s event was held June 8 and organizer VaLynda Summers said it was their best event yet. “This year we had two homebrew clubs and 30 breweries. Most were represented by the brewer or a brewery representative,” she said. “We also had great weather, great music and a great crowd.”
