Plan your Bold North summer

We’re Minnesotans tried and true, so naturally we’re kind of obligated to have an appreciation for all seasons. Summer, however, holds a special spot in our hearts. The time of year when the sun shines a little longer, the air is sweet and warm, and we all come alive again after being nestled away during the colder months. Summer at Bold North Cellars is an especially magical time. Whether you’ve never been to see us during the summer months, or you visit us every year, now’s the time to make your plan for fun! Read our guide to learn about all of the happenings this summer and get ready to bask in a Bold North summer!

Summer at Bold North Cellars

The Grounds Crew puts meticulously cares for all of the flowers, plants, and trees you enjoy when you’re here so it’s no wonder our grounds are particularly beautiful in the summertime. It’s truly a sight to behold! Sip your favorite beverage and enjoy the scenery that surrounds you. We welcome you to find your perfect spot on our expansive grounds to enjoy a beautiful day at Bold North Cellars!

Summer music

Every weekend we have an array of wonderful musicians playing. Pull up a seat under the pergola or at Jack’s outdoor pub and listen to live music, or pack a book and rest under the shade of our tall trees while the music plays in the background. Check out the music schedule for the summer here!

Outdoor games

Grab a brew and play a game of bags with your buddies on the lawn, sip on some wine while taking your family down at bocce ball, or challenge your kiddos to a game of giant chess before snacking on some wood-fired pizza. If the heat gets to you, check out our array of indoor games inside the brewery!

Summer pizza menu

We have some awesome pies on our summer pizza menu. Want to know what makes our pizza so darn good? Well let’s us show you…

Photo fun

There are so many places for fun photo opportunities with your friends and family on the Bold North Cellars grounds! Snap a pic of yourself sipping among the vines, cheers our resident viking outside of the brewery, or pose in front of our famous red truck.

We love being your spot to gather with friends and family! If you plan on having a large gathering, you can always book a space with us. Or, if things are a little more informal, feel free to join us indoors or outdoors. We do not take reservations, but there is plenty of space to be found throughout our property. If you have a large group coming, call or message to give us a heads up prior to the day so we can make sure we’re adequately prepared for your arrival.
