Home Brewers Festival at Eagles

August 11, 2008

Sample the area’s finest home made wine and beer at the Otter Tail County Historical Society’s annual Home Brewers Festival on Friday, August 22, 7:00 p.m. upstairs at the Eagles Club in Fergus Falls.
The Brewers Fest features local beer and wine makers providing samples of their best product. Since they cannot commercially sell their wine or beer, the Brewers Festival is the only opportunity for the public to sample what they have made. With over twenty home brewers participating there will be a wide selection ranging from grape to craison wine and pale ale to chocolate stout beer. If you do not indulge, Stumbeano’s locally roasted coffee will be served.
There will also be a silent auction of beer and wine held throughout the evening. This in an opportunity to take home what you have sampled and at the same time raise funds for the historical society.
The Eagles Club is an ideal location for this event. Constructed in 1946 in the shape of sea-going liner, it was the dream of Fergus Falls brewery owner Heinie Heinrich. According to Jim Gray’s book Building from the Past, “Heinrich used the ship was used for lavish entertaining and was the delight of customers who came from great distances.” The lower level was used as a storeroom for the brewery. The Eagles Club bought the ship in 1961 where it has served as the club’s home since.
If you are looking for an event that is fun, unique and “lavishly entertaining,” then attend the Home Brewers Festival on Friday, August 22, beginning at 7:00 p.m. No one under 21 will be admitted.
