Maple Lake’s third Brewfest went off without a hitch, Saturday, June 17. Even the rain held off until the last beer was drunk.
Although the skies threatened most of the afternoon, they didn’t open until around 5 p.m., closing time for the event that drew close to 175 people to taste more than 91 different selections of beers, wines and spirits at Irish Stadium.
“It was perfect timing,” said city clerk and Brewfest organizer Lee Ann Yager.
In the Taster’s Choice Award, Fargo Brewing Co. ousted two-time returning champion Spilled Grain of Annandale by winning the most votes. Lupulin Brewing out of Big Lake was second and Spilled Grain came in third. According to Yager, the competition was close, within one-vote close.
