Regional Breweries & Wineries

Craft beer is increasingly popular all across the country, and thanks to the seemingly endless thirst Minnesotans have for their beer, the number of Minnesota craft breweries has been expanding.  What the craft brew scene is discovering in markets around the country is that there is no such thing as a typical craft-beer drinker.  Beer lovers come in all forms, and the demand for new and interesting beers continues to grow rapidly.  Thankfully, guests staying at the Spicer Castle Inn have access to two wonderful local craft breweries.  The Foxhole Brewhouse in Willmar, which is the first brewery in the area since 1899, specializes in fresh, local, handcrafted beer.  They also host a variety of fun events throughout the year.  Another popular place to grab a beer is Goat Ridge Brewery in neighboring New London.  Considered to be the local watering hole with a fantastic vibe, this brewery is a wonderful place to stop in for a cold beer after a fun day of shopping. They also host a wonderful concert series throughout the year.
