Spring Hops Beer and Wine Festival
In the late 1800s, as many as 70 railcars would roll through Stillwater's train depot on a daily basis. And although the Milwaukee Road Railroad closed the depot down in 1970, the historic building remained a gathering place, ultimately turning into The Freight House: part restaurant, part nightclub, part event center.
It's here that the Spring Hops Beer and Wine Festival celebrates the city, perhaps just as much as the building itself. Looking out on the lift bridge and the St. Croix River, attendees fill their glasses with unlimited samples of craft beers and wines that come right from St. Croix vineyards. For VIP treatment, organizers bring in even more limited-edition beers as well as food, which they can garnish with sunlight on the restaurant's outdoor patio.
