Backstory of the Booze Cruise

The Haskell's Summer Boat Cruise first came about 22 years ago as a way to say thank you to Haskell's Bacchus loyalty members. At the time, it was solely a beer cruise and there was only one cruise a year, which took place on a Wednesday out of Minneapolis. But due to it's tremendous success and growing demand, we decided to open up the cruise to all of Haskell's loyal customers. 

We added a second cruise eight years ago, and then a third seven years ago. Over the past several years the cruises have taken place all around the metro, until we soon determined Stillwater was the ultimate hot spot! This year, all three summer cruises are on the St. Criox River in Stillwater.

What to Expect During the Cruise

We work hard to put together an exceptional afternoon on the water that's perfect for a couples date, double date, or afternoon away from the city. This is an adult-only afternoon that allows you to sample more than 50 different wines, as well as 50 different beers over the course of the three-hour cruise. There are typically a couple dozen wine and beer stations set up, along with treats from The Big Cheese and a provided lunch. Not only can you enjoy a variety of Haskell's products on the cruise, you can purchase some of your favorites from the day for at a special price!
