Trail Pairings: North Shore Double

We visited two state parks, two ski trails and two breweries on Minnesota’s North Shore. It was epic.

A Whole New Perspective

A hike down Pike Creek offers a whole new look at Charles A. Lindbergh State Park.

Trail Pairings: Revelation Ale Works

20 miles from Canada and North Dakota, Revelation Ale Works serves up cold beers to warm you up after skiing Lake Bronson State Park.

Trail Pairings: Take 16 Brewing Co

In the far southeastern corner of Minnesota, a trip to Blue Mounds State Park finishes off nicely at Take 16 Brewing Co.

Trail Pairings: Brau Brothers Brewing Co

There’s a beer-dispensing fire truck at Brau Brothers in Marshall, MN. Just what I needed after hitting the Camden Trail.
