The Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium will have space designated for conference attendees and will provide complementary appetizers. Free pool will also be available.

So, whether youíre just pulling into town, or finishing up a day of workshops, come by and see old friends or meet some new ones.

Beer Tasting Gathering

Brewers sponsoring this year's tasting are Summit Brewing of St. Paul, The Town Hall Brewery of Minneapolis and Gluek's of Cold Spring. These brewers will be donating a variety of beer covering the range of the high quality beer styles they produce. Styles will include Pilsener, Golden Ale, Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, Scotch Ale, Honey Ale, Oktoberfest, Bock, Stout, Red Lager, Black & Tan, Smoked Porter, Porter, Herb & Spiced and Rye beer. 


Please join us for what has become a tradition at the conference, the GIS/LIS beer-tasting event. For the 2005 beer sampling social, GeoComm will be hosting the event at the historically renovated Lahr building. As always, the Boreal Brewers Club of Bemidji is kind enough to provide the fruit of their labors to be sampled by those present. In addition, samples from commercial breweries will be provided, as available. Home brewers are strongly encouraged to bring their own fermented beverages to share with others, but a designated GIS/LIS host will do all pouring. Along with many delicious brews of beer, snacks will be provided as well as some fun prizes. The first 70 people to register for this event will receive a free beer glass. All proceeds from this event will benefit the scholarship fund. You must be at least 21 years of age to attend this event and identification will be checked at the door.


The Lahr building is within easy walking distance of the civic center and will provide a wonderful atmosphere for the beer tasting. Thank you to the Boreal Brewers, Ayres Associates and GeoComm for their generous donations to the Mn GIS/LIS Conference entertainment fund and helping to put on great events for 2005!
