As always, Glensheen Mansion has a busy summer planned and they are kicking off the season this week with a new Wednesday night series all about beer.
'Beer Garden at Glensheen' will feature a different local brewery each week, starting with Blacklist Artisan Ales June 7. Jane Pederson with Glensheen says they hope to shine light on yet another bit of the estate's history through this new series.
“The estate, before the Congdon's moved there, belonged to the Tischer family and there was a beer garden on the estate," she explained.
The beer garden will be open every Wednesday in June from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and will have plenty of beer, plus a few words from the featured brewer, and yard games if the weather allows. The series is free to public with beer sold at cash bars.
After June, Wednesdays will once again be dedicated to a favorite tradition at Glensheen.
“It wouldn't be a summer in Duluth without 'Concerts on the Pier,' so we just announced that lineup yesterday," said Jane.
You can find this year's lineup on Glensheen's Facebook Page.
Also at Glensheen this summer, Jane says they are happy bring back their self-guided tours with a few elements enhanced, including a passbook with facts not included in their regular tour. For kids, they have introduced a 'Treasure Book' that can be purchased for $1.
“It's a great kind of 'I SPY'-style, helping the kids follow along and pointing out certain items for them to look for,” Jane said.
Glensheen's unofficial mascot, Tim the Fox, helps the kids along with the 'Treasure Book.'
