Very exciting news, team! Land Grant Brewery is leading Team Northstar on a tour of their facilities on Monday, June 1. We will see where the magic happens, meet some brewers, and taste the delicious end results.
Land Grant beers are a mainstay at Third & Hollywood and Northstar Easton, and pass through as features at Beechwold. It’s a relatively new brewery with a ton of spunk and high quality beers, located in a beautifully remodeled building.
Join your team mates on this adventure, which will last until at least 2-2:30pm, though you can depart whenever you need to. Any questions? Let us know!

It’s time for our first meeting of the summer! And by meeting we mean cookout. And by cookout we mean reason to feverishly eat hot dogs with extra (organic) ketchup.
If you’re a Trailmix member we expect to see your smiling face at Claire & Scott’s house, located at the address below. Street parking is ample and their grill is large, so bring whatever you’d like to throw on the barby.
We’ll be discussing some fabulous upcoming events and breaking down areas of responsibility. Get ready to talk about a trip to Cedar Point, more brewery tours, a Northstar fun run and, at long last, Labor Day!
Please leave any questions here or ask Tony or Claire. We can’t wait to see you!

Every hour on the hour, children are invited to a guided tour and art-inspired scavenger hunt. Each child will be given a sketchbook to create their own masterpieces. There’s lots to see and do
The gallery is located just off Goodale Park and is surrounded by a sculpture garden, so there’s lots to see and do in all types of weather.

You’ve heard of it’s rolling hills and unique, Belgian-style beer. Maybe you’ve seen the large-format bottles at Third & Hollywood. Now, it’s time for your Rockmill Brewery adventure to begin.
The plan is to grabs some food, explore the grounds, taste delicious beer, and learn from Matthew Barbee, head brewmaster and frequent guest in our restaurants. Meet at Easton at 11am where we’ll get lots of carryout food to take with us. Feel free to bring lunch from home, if you’d rather. All team members + very significant others are invited! We will carpool down to Lancaster where the brewery is located, about a 35-minute drive, returning by late afternoon/evening, though different cars can leave whenever they need to.
This is a private reservation, so we’ll have the place to ourselves.
Check out the posters in your restaurants for more details! To get a lay of the land, revisit the recap and photos of our last visit to Rockmill.
