The Annual Doug Hennes Herf
For the uninitiated, a Herf is simply a fancy term for a gathering of friends and acquaintances to relax, unwind and smoke premium cigars. You won't find any drug store cigars at a Herf! The Herf was started in 2010 by the late Doug Hennes in the back yard of his home in Eagan, Minnesota, and has grown to become an annual event eagerly anticipated by more than 100 brothers and sisters of the leaf. The main theme of this event is relaxation and camaraderie, everything else is secondary - even the cigars.
The 2022 Doug Hennes Herf will be in Chaska again this year. This year we are charging admission while soliciting food, beer and cigar vendor contributions so that any funds in excess of the cost of hosting the event can be donated to ThreeSixty Journalism, a nonprofit program of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of St. Thomas co-founded by Doug Hennes. ThreeSixty Journalism uses the principles of strong writing and reporting to help diverse Minnesota youth tell the stories of their lives and communities.
Join us for an afternoon of fine cigars (One Marco V Cigar will be provided with each paid admission, more will be available for purchase), great local craft beer, wine, music, delicious food and camaraderie.
Long time Herf Sponsors include:
Indeed Brewing - an engaged and community-oriented brewery, offering and artfully eclectic line-up of beers from the heart of Northeast Minneapolis.
Marco V Cigars - A local company that has established a premier boutique cigar brand with a national presence.
Thumbs Up Jamaica Jerk - Derrick and Kim Agate will supply slow cooked barbeque and fixings once again this year - they were a huge hit the last two years!
Dolce Vita Wine Shop - A locally owned wine shop specializing in thoughtfully selected wine, craft beer, premium spirits and cigars.
Cigars and Baseball
Cigars & Baseball is ‘Minnesota’s Largest Cigar Party’. Enjoy premium cigars, food, drinks, live music, and more – All at an outdoor cigar-friendly event.
In 2010, a small group of loyal Twins fans and cigar-lovers, had an idea…
“Let’s have a Twins tailgate party and smoke some cigars with a bunch of friends!”
What started as a tailgate party, grew exponentially and five separate “Cigar Herfs” were held, each welcoming over 100 cigar aficionados.
Nearby restaurants, the liquor industry, and local breweries offered to donate. With their kindness, our cigar party became a major fundraiser for the Minnesota Miracle Leagues. We now had a new purpose, and a new reason to expand.
In 2013, we went public. The First Annual Cigars & Baseball hosted over 300 attendees. Now, instead of just one cigar, ticket holders received SEVEN premium cigars. We welcomed food samples from metro area restaurants, plenty of drink options, live music, and an opportunity to bid on some cigar-lover’s favorite items at our silent auction.
And for 2022, we’re excited to be back at CSH Field!
Also, our very popular Marco V Red Wine is available again at the Chateau St. Croix Winery. Click this link to learn more about the wine!
These are some of our favorite events of the year. We hope to see you there!
