About the Brewery

Bent Paddle Brewing Company is a 30-barrel production craft brewery and taproom located in the beautiful Great Lakes port town of Duluth, Minnesota. The brewers of Bent Paddle Brewing Co. use the amazing water of Lake Superior to brew the freshest and most dependable craft beer possible. Lake Superior is 10% of the worlds fresh water and 100% of our beer is made with that water. It is incredibly soft and mimics the water of Pilsen, Czech Republic, the birthplace of Pilseners. Our flagship beers, as well as specialty seasonal offerings, are available in varied keg sizes as well as 12 oz. cans at bars, liquor stores, restaurants and event facilities throughout Minnesota and beyond, as well as by the glass or 64oz. growler to go in our on-site taproom.

  1. Great concept
    Would prefer wine to beer
    Coming from Minneapolis I would prefer a Saturday night

    • Hey John, thanks for the feedback. We like wine too! 🙂 Keep an eye for wine dinners, which we host from time to time. Weekends are our busy times with groups at the lodge so most of our special dining events fall on weekdays. We hope to meet you someday.
