For all of you Wisconsin folks who like to spend some time in the north woods, Iron Mountain MI is right on the border and across the Menominee River. It’s just a short 1 or 2 hour road trip from Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Rhinelander, Marinette, Stevens Point, and Wausau. If you’re down in Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha, Madison, or even Chicago IL, it’s a 3 to 5 hour drive, which is still very reasonable for a weekend.

There will be plenty of ale, lager, cider, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages on hand.
