Pioneer Railroad Days will sponsor the inaugural Beerfest Event on May 3 at the St. James VFW from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
This event will be similar to the First National Bank’s fundraiser for Railroad Days last fall. Their Wine Tasting event gives patrons a chance to sample many wines. That event sold about 150 tickets as a fundraiser for Railroad Days.
At Beerfest 2013, those in attendance will sample about 25 different beers from around the country including those from several area breweries.
The following distributers will also be giving samples of products they distribute: Locher Brothers, Tow Distributing, Arneson Distributing, Schell Brewery. At press time we will also feature items from JJ Distributing, Beerhouse Brewing and Mankato Brewery, which is owned by St. James Graduate Tony Feuchtenberger.
The Railroad Committee will have free snacks throughout the evening and also be selling grilled Johnsonville Beef with Sauer Kraut.
A highlight of the evening will also include live music.
Beerfest 2013 will also be an event where you can register to be eligible for our WE Fest VIP giveaway.
Tickets available at First National Bank, Pioneer Bank St. James Federal Bank, the St. James Liquor Store, VFW and committee members Jim Nail and Eugene Hildebrandt. Cost is $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
