Day 88: Big Island-Inspired

Bottling the lake life at Excelsior Brewing.

Excelsior Brewing
It’s like hanging out in lawn chairs in your buddy’s garage drinking a cold one, but your buddy happens to brew a ton of good beer. The guys at Excelsior Brewing get lake life, which shouldn’t surprise anyone, considering the company exists in the back lots of Lake Minnetonka’s summer Brigadoon: Excelsior. Go sockless and seek a Big Island Blonde, before heading on the lake to find the real deal. 421 3rd St., Excelsior, 952-474-7837, excelsiorbrew.com
