SPRING LAKE, Minn. - Back Channel Brewing opened quietly in September on the west side of Lake Minnetonka, but now they're ready to announce their existence with a bang.

The brewery is throwing a grand opening party Saturday, Nov. 25. They'll hold a bottle release for Soviet Slayer, a 10% ABV Imperial Stout, at 11 a.m. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to make it in the doors for this part of the event.

Then at noon, doors open to the public for food, music, giveaways and beer.

The party will go until 9 p.m. at Back Channel's taproom, 4787 Shoreline Drive in Spring Park.
