What is happening now?
We closed down the taproom, with the final day on June 27th. (Read below for plans to have events in the taproom through 2021.)
What is happening next?
Beginning in 2022, we will begin work on the next era. The first part is to begin working on a small brewery somewhere in the middle of nowhere that would produce small-batch barrel aged, Scandinavian farmhouse, and traditional beers that would be available alongside the second part.
The second part of this is to partner with a well known local brewery to produce beer for us in cans, to
continue supplying Minnesota and other markets that want traditional smoked beer.
Will the new brewery have a taproom?
It will not. The idea is to simplify everything we are doing.
We are simply too big to focus on all of the things that are important to us, and not big enough to sustain everything that exists, we need a major change. These two new projects allow us to brew beer the way we want to, between the small batch spot where we can continue to do barrel aging, special release bottles, long-process beers, and then the contract canning (@ Brewery TBD) which will allow us to get existing beers out to more people that might want it...we hope the next phase will be as exciting as the one we are saying goodbye to.
What is happening to the building?
We will be working on selling the building and equipment, ideally to another brewer who wants to operate a production space or a brewery + taproom. Any inquires can be directed to
What is the plan for gift cards?
Gift Cards can be redeemed through the end of the month while we are still open, and as we do small/limited events throughout the next 6 months, they can be used then as well. If a gift card is unable to be redeemed during these times, please contact Nathaniel: firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the plan for growlers?
Any Growlers that wish to be returned can be done so through the end of the month and at growler days over the next 6 months until a “date to be determined”. At some point, we will not accept growlers in return and all new growlers that go out will be “one way” intended for memorabilia or recycling, these will not carry a deposit.
