Summit Brewing Boundary Waters Box Returns with New Offerings

Summit Brewing has announced the return of their popular summer variety pack, The Boundary Waters Box. After a winter that lasted much longer than most of us wanted, The Boundary Waters Box comes at a perfect time to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

The box is stocked with refreshing flavors ready for a classic Minnesota summer on the beach or in the boathouse. In the pack you will find a familiar classic, along with three new faces never seen before from Summit Brewing Company. The Boundary Waters Box will include Summit Hefeweizen, Summit Golden Fruited, Summit Skip Rock and Summit Lazy Sipper.

The Summit Hefeweizen is an old friend to the Midwest, first being introduced in 2002. Leaving the brewery in 2011, the beer returns for the second straight year in The Boundary Waters Box. The branding of this summer-fresh ale is reminiscent of that quintessential summer moment of throwing a line off a boat. Colors of the can mirror those of a Minnesota day reflecting on the lake.
