With our long-delayed winter finally making its icy presence known, the time feels right to celebrate that shaggy-bodied, mythical monster of the Northwoods, the Yeti. Fortunately, the folks at Imminent Brewery have got this one; join them at their downtown Northfield location beginning at 4pm on Feb. 8, for Yeti Fest.

The festival continues through the 9th, and features, among other things, a long john contest, a fat tire bike ride, Yeti story time, live music, an ice bar and, yes, a Yeti lookalike contest. For more information, go to, and start growing that beard.
