Come on a Brewery Tour with Woods To Water!

The Lakes Area is buzzing with breweries and we’re excited to take you along for a pint to check them out;)

Newest brewery to the Lakes Area. Focused on small batch and experimental beers, IPAs, German lagers and Belgians. Bobber Red IPA and Wave Runners Imperial are the go-to in our opinion. Check out their unique pontoon stage where they host live music!
