That time of year is upon us again. Autumn brings a wealth of activities and events that are sure to inspire folks to come closer together as a family. However, if you’re not looking forward to said family, The Herkimer can help! As a happening brewpub in Minneapolis, we have a wealth of enriching pub events to get you through the holidays. One such celebration is the American staple known as Drinksgiving. Yes, it is a drinking holiday. No, it isn’t a nationally recognized holiday.

Good question, reader. As a sports bar and grill, the Herkimer is always on point when it comes to any festivities or celebrations that happen to include libations. While many Americans are busy preparing for the big dinner or a grueling marathon, other citizens are busy indulging in intoxication. Drinksgiving is an annual holiday that always occurs the day before Thanksgiving. Why, you ask? Well, many folks enjoy a night of celebrating due to the following day consisting of holiday work hours. Another factor that couples with the day off is that a huge number of college students have returned home and are ready to party. This combination equates to an unofficial holiday that rivals other drinking celebrations, such as Saint Patty’s Day or New Year’s Eve.
