Essential Chippewa Valley Drink Checklist

Along with all the amazing restaurants around the Chippewa Valley, we’re also known for our breweries, distilleries, and wineries. During your night out, be sure to check out these great establishments for the perfect cocktail, beer or glass of wine.

NOTE - the drinks below were from 2017



“Northern Lights” — Autumn Harvest Winery & Orchard

Northern Lights is Autumn Harvest Winery’s best-selling wine year after year. The wine has a light, fruity taste with hints of apple combined with the smoothness of grape. It’s a great “starting off” point for non-wine drinkers.

“Summer Heat” — Infinity Beverages Winery & Distillery

One of their most popular cocktails, “Summer Heat” is made with your choice of Infinity's Original Audacity Vodka or naturally infused Audacity Chile Pepper Vodka (for those that like a little more kick in their sip). The cocktail is a combination of house made simple syrup, lemonade, fresh cucumber and jalapenos making it slightly spicy but also delightfully refreshing.

The majority of Infinity's cocktails change with the Fall and Spring seasons but Summer Heat is so popular that it remains on the Tasting Lounge Menu regardless of the season! There's always something happening and something new to sip at Infinity Beverages Winery and Distillery.

“Oktoberfest” — Lazy Monk Brewing

Lazy Monk Brewing keeps the historic tradition alive with their Oktoberfest, one of the oldest and most beloved bier styles. Dating back to the early 1800's, this classic style of bier rings through in all the elements of our Oktoberfest.
