Hivernant (French for “winterer “) is a signature brew created by Head Brewer, Jason Baumgarth, to celebrate Voyageur’s anniversary and the local influence of Voyageur beer. This small batch release will be bottled in 750ml wax dipped bottles featuring special artwork from local artist, Jeff Niesen.


“Craft beer is our way of expressing ourselves,” said Baumgarth. “We’re excited to share this signature beer with our customers and to invite new customers to experience our bold and adventurous craft beer at the anniversary party. We’re not just celebrating Voyageur Brewing, but all of the adventurers and voyageurs out there who love craft beer, the North Shore, and we’re excited to celebrate with the local community. The local artwork featured on the Hivernant label is an expression of that.”


Hivernant will be a taproom exclusive. Voyageur Brewing Company plans to brew an artistic Imperial Stout annually featuring labels by different artists.


“There’s no better way for us to thank our customers than by hosting an adventure right here in our taproom on the North Shore of Lake Superior,” said Cara Sporn, co‐owner and company spokesperson. “Over the course of two days, we’re inviting people to come sample our beer, tour the


taproom, dance, paint, and enjoy a host of amazing local musicians. If you haven’t had a chance to visit, this is the perfect opportunity.”
