Booze Cruise: Enjoy the View, Sip a Few on Haskell's Summer Boat Cruise

Featured Image

Summer is in full swing, and one of the best ways to spend it is on a boat with a drink in hand! The Bacchus Beer & Wine Cruises are back for the 2023 season, and whether you're a brew-lover or a wine-connoisseur, it’ll make you say, "Ale yeah!" and "Wine not?"

Backstory of the Booze Cruise

The Haskell's Summer Boat Cruise first came about 28 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 its tremendous success and growing demand, we decided to open up the cruise to all of Haskell's loyal customers. 

Around 10 years ago, we had to add a second cruise, then a third, and now we have four dates scheduled every summer–one Saturday per month from June-September! The cruises have taken place all around the metro area, but we ultimately determined that Stillwater was the hot spot! This year, all four summer cruises are on the St. Criox River in Stillwater.

What to Expect

We work hard to put together an exceptional afternoon on the water that's perfect for a couple’s date, a double date, a friend date, or just an 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, and a hearty lunch to power you through as many as you’d like to try! Not only can you enjoy a variety of Haskell's products on the cruise, but you can also purchase some of your favorites from the day at a special price at a Haskell’s near you!

The Details:


*We will cruise rain or shine.


Boarding begins at 11:30 am.
