Summit Brewing is pleased to be partnering with Eureka Recycling again, Minnesota’s only nonprofit with a mission to demonstrate waste is preventable. Together we are working towards zero waste at our upcoming Backyard Bash. We are aiming to reduce discarded material and to ensure that disposable items generated at the event will be compostable or recyclable. Volunteers will make it easy for event-goers to recycle and compost. We’re looking forward to seeing how close we can come to zero while having a great time!

Special thanks go out to the Saint Paul Jaycees and our Summiteers for being event volunteers.  We couldn’t do it without you!  We also want to thank 89.3 The Current for their sponsorship of our event, as well as Culligan for suppling free water stations throughout the grounds.

The Minnesota United FC will be at our Bash this year from noon until 4pm! Kids can color their very own soccer scarves from noon to 2pm, and United players will be in attendance to sign autographs and take photos from 2 to 4pm.
