It seems like just yesterday (or forever ago), but on this day four short (and long) years ago, we sold our first beer. Since then, we’ve been working hard (though occasionally hardly working) to keep our brewery at its best. In the last 48 months, we’ve grown from a staff of six to a staff of over 50 hard-working, but more importantly, very good-looking people. We went from one taproom to two, and added a 12,500 square foot warehouse to the mix, expanding our distribution from the Twin Cities area to now covering almost all of Minnesota and North Dakota, as well as parts of Wisconsin. In June of 2014 we began Indeed We Can, our charitable giving program. To date, we’ve donated over $150,000 to local charities and partied with them in our taproom. We’ve partnered with one of the largest craft breweries in the country – New Belgium Brewing, and had a medal-winning beer at the Great American Beer Festival. What a ride.
While we’re not sure exactly how many beers we’ve downed along the way (we can only assume millions), we do know that we could never be on this crazy journey without you. We have so much gratitude for our friends – customers, distributors, and all the stores, bars and restaurants that carry our beer. Thanks for your support, patronage and encouragement over the last four years – and here’s to many, many more.
Peep the now and then photos in the post to see what has changed (and what hasn't) in the last four years. Then come visit us this weekend and check it out for yourself. We hope to see you soon. Cheers!
