When Clubhouse Jäger opened its doors in Minneapolis' Warehouse District 10 years ago, there were no glass clad condos dotting the landscape and barely a place to get a sandwich, much less the line up of eateries there are now. Jäger has withstood it all and they are ready to celebrate. Since it also happens to be Summit's 30th anniversary, the party will feature Summit’s 30th Anniversary Double IPA, Unchained 21: Us & Them IPA and a Jäger exclusive cast-conditioned firkin of Oatmeal Stout with an Irish mint tea infusion. A Cupcake Social will be selling a limited supply of yum: Summit beer cupcakes.
