Welcome to the 1st Annual, Leech Lake Frostfest. Join us on the frozen waters of Minnesota's 3rd largest lake for an afternoon party of craft beer, snow golf, live music, a homebrew competition, local foods, and more. Portage Brewing Company, in partnership with the Leech Lake Watershed, Tianna Country Club, Green Scene Organic Market, Piggy's BBQ, Reeds, and Trappers Landing, are curating one heck of an on-ice event. 10% of all proceeds will go to the Leech Lake Watershed Foundation. Dress warm. All ages welcome.


Your Travels

The Golf

  • Overview: In partnership with Tianna Country Club, a 9-hole snow golf course will be designed and constructed for play. Entry into the event covers your 9-hole round of golf, a club, and a ball. Each hole has its unique distance and hazardous challenge. Take your time to finish the round and cozy up in our warming houses provided by Reeds.

The Party

  • Beer: Provided by yours truly, and yes, we'll have a beer cart.
  • Homebrew Comp: In partnership with Upstream Homebrewers Club, enjoy a free homebrew sample at each hole's warming tent while you golf. At the end of the round, vote for your favorite beer where the winner will be invited to brew at Portage Brewing Co.
  • Local Foods: There's nothing better than barbecue and beer. Enjoy the best BBQ around from our friends at Piggy's.
  • Activities: Bonfires, an outdoor beer garden, live music, ice hole (similar to corn hole), giant jenga, and more. What more could you want (seriously, email us with ideas at [email protected])?
