The weather conditions just haven't worked out for the 2017 Birkebeiner Ski races this weekend. Unseasonably warm weather along with rain melted away the snow. There was a last minute hope that the snowstorm predicted would save the ski event, but the storm went further east.
I always welcome the chance to try a new beer, so I was excited by the announcement that the Birkie has partnered with Lucette Brewing Company to create the Birkie Brew-Ski, which they are billing as a Legendary Amber Ale.
Tired of being stuck in-doors? Want to get a free Birkie hat? The American Birkebeiner and BirkieTour are coming up soon and have volunteer opportunities available in several areas. You'll get out in the fresh air, earn a free hat and get an invite to an appreciation dinner in February.
