Forest Friendly Brewery Events
The Forest to Tap Program uses the strong connection between great forests, great water, and great beer to educate the public on the importance of responsibly managed forests. Forest to Tap (F2T) is now a non-profit based program planned and supported by a diverse group of natural resource interests whose common denominator is the knowledge that good forest management – including planting, harvesting, and stewardship – results in clean water for wildlife, communities, businesses, and ultimately great beer.
“Buy One, Get One Tree” is back! As we emerge from the pandemic, Forest to Tap wants to celebrate Arbor Day with our Buy One - Get One Tree event on Friday, April 30th from 4-7 pm. With the purchase of your first pint, you will earn a free white pine seedling that you can take home. Below is the list of participating breweries. We hope you will join us for this giveaway event and celebrate the forest's role in great Minnesota beer!

Project Learning Tree ‘Event’
The Minnesota Forest Resources Partnership is sponsoring a rewrite of eight new Project Learning Tree lessons that will focus on native American culture. The lessons will be posted online on mndnr.gov/plt over the summer.
As we look ahead as well as at ‘today,’ and find our lives and routines upset, MFRP Chair Craig Halla reminds us these are ‘unprecedented times.” “We must challenge ourselves to be positive,” he suggested. We need to be more efficient at work, respect space, and remember that adversity does build character. At times like this we can take time to observe the simple.”
The MFRP encourages you to observe the simple during these weeks walking into Spring. Note the return of the Canada geese and red-winged blackbirds, the ‘ice out’ on area lakes and rivers, budding aspen, and the earth that appears on south-facing slopes.
Be safe and healthy.
