Bach & Brews                                         

Overview

J.S. Bach wrote most of his 1100+ compositions to be performed within church services, but he also wrote secular music for casual summer concerts at Zimmerman's Cafe in Leipzig. Bach & Brews shares Bach's semi-staged comedies in breweries throughout Minnesota, as well as comedic music by other Baroque composers. Come experience light-hearted music, exceptional artistry, good beer, and great company. Perhaps you'll even be invited to join us in singing Baroque drinking songs!
