Yes! Last year we had a wonderful time pressing 120 gallons of apple juice. This year we would like you to join us. I don't know how much juice we can press this year, but I do know that we will be pressing apples as the first part of the activities. I know I will be filling a few carboys. It is a wonderful drink. If you would like some, bring a jug. If you would like lots, I suggest bringing bushels of apples (from Webber's Orchard?) - the seconds are more than adequate and not as expensive.
Then in the mid-afternoon, we will keep with traditional entertainment. We will provide beverages (beer, wine, root beer) and an entree (hamburgers, hotdogs, or some such thing). We ask that you bring a favorite food to share with the others. Remember our motto: If it is good, bring lots. If not, bring enough for yourself. Weather permitting, we will build a bon fire at dusk. Entertainment includes eating, drinking, mingling, telling Ole & Lena jokes, discussing the weather, visiting with old friends and new acquaintances, and trying to guess "who are those other people?" This is intended to be a family friendly festival of excessive eating, drinking, and merrimaking; so feel free to bring the kids.
We will have distinctly fine brews from around the world as well as some cider & mead to tickle your tastebuds. In addition, the Root Beer will be homemade. Also we will find some sort of food to add to your contributions.
This year’s theme: Ahhh! Celebration of Life!
RSVP (952-440-4558) is requested, but not required. See our map. (We are at the corner of 207th & Calmor)
