As summer gets underway, have a few new activities at Loony's Brew, including Wednesday Sailing Regattas and Sunday Morning Yoga sessions.
Wednesday Sailing Regattas
This year the sailing club has changed the regatta/racing location to be right in Sand Bay, making watching from Loony's Brew a great spot to check out the race and hanging out with some of the sailors over some beers afterwards. These are big boats and can be interesting to see their tacks, jibes, and downwind spinnaker openings.
Sunday Morning Yoga
Hosted by Tricia Heibel from Replenish Yoga, every Sunday morning starting at 10am is Yoga time. The sessions take place on the deck, offering great views of the lake with usually a light morning breeze making a perfect spot to relax, stretch out and relieve some tension from the hectic summer activities.
As more people are coming out to enjoy a pint or two outside during the great summer weather, we've expanded our hours to be open Monday through Saturday at noon, and 10am on Sunday. Also helpful if wishing to fill up a growler or two for evening activities elsewhere.
The Events Loony
Thanks to the wonderful work from J2M, we're now stocked up with seven stylistic colored t-shirts to choose from, including black, yellow, light blue, dark blue, pink, grey, and green.

Available in Small through 2XL, perfect for the winter weather and those relatively chilly summer evenings.

The Rhyming Loony
In tribute to our neighbors of the north, starting tomorrow, every Sunday will be Canadian On Par day, where you can buy any beer, wine, drink, food, or growler with the Canadian and US Dollar being equal.
Stop over to check it out and see what we're about, open from noon until midnight!
The Traveling Loony
Starting tonight at 6pm and every Wednesday for the foreseeable future, is Cribbage night at Loony's Brew!
This is where you can sit back, have a couple pints including getting one for free as starting at 6pm means it's included with the daily 2-1 happy hour, have some complimentary peanuts, and test your wits or luck with a fellow Northwoods card shark.
Rules or Guidelines? Currently none but as we get more people involved, will no doubt evolve the evening with the winner receiving a complimentary growler filled with their favorite beer or some equally cherished prize (not that it has an equal but for any non-drinkers, we'll come up with something glorious).
Come on down to Loony's Brew tonight to help us kickstart this new weekly tradition, and if there's a game or other special event on the tube, let us know and your request will be done.
The Gaming Loony
Another year has come and gone and with that, here's a bit of an annual review of what worked, what didn't, and some of the activities being planned for 2018. And yeah, while this may be a bit strange coming from a pub, it can be helpful in the process of continued evolvement, change (not always a bad thing), and making things better.
2017, The Highs or What Went Well
It's always not a bad idea to reflect on what's actually been accomplished, especially so when times are slower or don't seem to be moving quite as quickly as you'd like. Patience and baby steps.
The learning lessons, things we tried but didn't work out so well and hopefully will never be repeated.
While we firmly believe in the Sun Tzu strategy of planning in darkness and strike like a thunderbolt, as well as being able to adapt and change as appropriate, here are a few items being planned for:
In summary, thanks to everyone for helping to make 2017 a great year and looking forward to an even better 2018!
