The Chippewa River is like the Switzerland of the Midwest—it's the neutral territory where Minnesotans and Wisconsinites can come together, crack open a cold beer, and put their differences aside. And with today's wet 'n' wild Adventure, send your cross-border angst rolling down the river and join us on the Chippewa River for a day of brewery touring and river tubing, including lunch, dinner, beers, and transportation.
We'll meet at the Park 'n' Ride at 2750 Cleveland Avenue in Roseville, where we'll meet our water-happy team who will usher us onto luxury coach buses bound for the Chippewa River. Once we arrive, we'll fuel up with a lunch at Loopy's Grill & Saloon, which will include a turkey sandwich with chips, fruit, and a cookie.
With bellies full we'll head upriver to our nation's seventh-oldest operating brewery, which has produced beer since 1867: the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, nestled in the charming streets of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Here, we'll get a tour of the brewery as well as an opportunity to enjoy four 5-ounce tastings of the award-winning brews. We'll also get some free time to explore the Leinie Lodge and the gift shop.
Then it's back to the bus and on to the water—we'll receive a safety briefing and jump into our tubes. The long and lazy float, lasting about 2.5 hours, will let us unwind as we drift through pristine waters, bordered by alternating lush green trees and rocky shorelines. With our limbs tapped out from our day on the river and our heads floating from our time amongst the taps, our float will end back at Loopy's for dinner. There, we'll have the choice of a barbecue pulled pork sandwich, hot roast beef sandwich, or beer bratwurst, all served with fries. To cap off our time in Leinie's country, we'll receive a cold draft Leinie's of our choice and have access to Loopy's volleyball courts and a variety of other lawn games.
Finally, we'll get back on the buses for our trip back to the Twin Cities. Keep the Minnesota-Wisconsin tradition sacred with this Adventure. That's what we call a bridge over troubled water.
