"Lost Forest Festival" Aiming to Restore Northland Beauty

Updated: June 06, 2019 09:54 AM

Fitger's Brewhouse Brewery and Grille is joining in the effort to restore white pine trees in northern Minnesota. They're hoping to attract others to do the same in a fun, entertaining way.


The Duluth business is working with Minnesota Power to put on the first-ever "Lost Forest Festival."

On Friday, June 7 at 5 p.m., local groups aiming to help the environment (North Shore Forest Collaborative, Sugarloaf: The North Shore Stewardship Association and Rajala Woods Foundation) will be at Fitger's Brewer's Garage. They'll be giving information about planting trees. A special "Lost Forest" ale will be on tap. $1 from every beer of that kind sold will go toward tree restoration efforts. There will also be a sign-up session for a tree-planting session.

That session will take place Saturday, June 8 along Keene Creek. The festival wraps up at Fitger's Barrel Room for pizza and drink specials.
