Summit Brewing is pleased to be partnering with Eureka Recycling, Minnesota’s only nonprofit with a mission to demonstrate waste is preventable. Together we are working towards zero waste at our upcoming Backyard Bash. We are aiming to reduce discarded material and to ensure that disposable items generated at the event will be compostable or recyclable. Volunteers will make it easy for event-goers to recycle and compost. We’re looking forward to seeing how close we can come to zero while having a great time!
Parking is very limited, so we’re encouraging everyone to bike, bus, shuttle, carpool, walk, or take a cab. Please see our FAQ section below for more info on these options.
Special thanks go out to the Saint Paul Jaycees and our Summit tour guides for being event volunteers. We couldn't do it without you!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Where should I park?
Parking is extremely limited. This means you may have to park on the street and walk quite a ways. Please be aware of any parking restrictions when you park on the street! A few of our neighbors have graciously opened up their lots for the day. Please only park in lots that are clearly marked with our signs. Again, these lots will fill up very fast!
So if there is no parking, what should I do?
We are encouraging biking and there will be racks available (don’t forget your bike lock!). We are also right off of W 7th, so Metro Transit makes stops not far from here! We are in the process of arranging free shuttles from area bars. Check back here soon for more info. And of course, there are always cabs.

Speaking of water/pop-the Jaycees will be selling these items as a fundraiser for their group, so know that your hydration is going to a good cause!
