PARTY AT THE LAKE!  EXCELSIOR BREWING BEERTHDAY, JULY 1ST WEEKEND Excelsior Brewing is turning five and will host a party that includes live music, a 5k road race, throwback beers and games
Excelsior, Minnesota June 15th, 2017— One of Minnesota’s first microbreweries, Excelsior Brewing Company (EBC) is turning five over the July 1st weekend and celebrating with a throwback “beerthday” bash.  The event will include a 5k, live music, brewery tours, games and some nostalgia to remind attendees of the humble origins of a brewery that has grown into one of the top 10 in the state.

“When we opened, none of us envisioned we’d grow so quickly.  The lakes community drove that, and on our beerthday we’d like to repay that support with a rager for the ages.”  — John Klick, President, Excelsior Brewing Company
Events kick off at noon on Friday with an outdoor beer garden, ring-a-ling games and the return of the brewery’s inaugural offering, Bridge Jumper India Pale Ale (IPA).  Head Brewer Niles Lewin has dusted off the original recipe and created a limited-edition batch of the brew that started it all.

Attendees are invited to begin with the Bridge Jumper IPA and take a self-guided tour of the evolution of Excelsior beer via onsite samples that span all five years.

Saturday festivities begins with a 5k at 11am as a part of the Minnesota Brewery Running Series and live music all day beginning at noon outside. Food will be available from the Mason’s of Excelsior as well as Joey Nova’s.
