The 2014 Galena Witches Brew Weekend

Halloween is is creeping up on us and what better way to enjoy it than taking advantage of The Galena Witches Brew Weekend?

The Galena Witches Brew Weekend is an opportunity for you to tour a Galena distillery and nine beautiful, Galena Bed and Breakfasts while they’re all made-up for the Halloween holiday, ending up at a Halloween themed party with appetizers and a Witches Brew that you helped to create!

The fun begins on Friday, October 31st, 2014 when you check into a participating Galena Bed and Breakfast – such as us, Cloran Mansion Bed & Breakfast – and receive your unique, copper mug created especially for the Galena Witches Brew Weekend. This is your ticket to the fun and adventure scheduled for Friday and Saturday!

At 7pm, Friday night, take the mug with you to Galena’s own Blaum Bros. Distillery for a free, 45 minute tour, that includes a comprehensive look at the art of distilling. Touch, taste, and feel the ingredients that make Blaum Bros. Distillery spirits some of the best around – then enjoy the freshest of these spirits at the cash bar!

On Saturday, the fun continues with a three-hour tour (2pm – 5pm) of the nine Galena Bed & Breakfasts that make up The Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers of Galena:

Cloran Mansion & Antonio’s Cottage
Farmers’ Guest House
The Steamboat House
Aldrich Guest House
Belle Aire Mansion Guest House
Galena Log Cabin Getaway
Hellman Guest House
Hawk Valley Retreat
Annie Wiggins Guest House
Avery Guest House

Expect lots of Halloween themed fun at each stop and don’t forget to collect your ingredients at each Galena Bed & Breakfast for the special brew awaiting you when the tour ends at Hawk Valley Retreat for the Galena Witches Brew Weekend Social, 5pm – 7pm. Enjoy appetizers and the aforementioned Witches Brew you help to create. Dressing up in costume is not a requirement – but it couldn’t hurt!
