About Bent Paddle Brewing Company

Bent Paddle Brewing Co. 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.

It is our goal at Bent Paddle Brewing Co. to produce beers that “Bend the Tradition” of the classic style that they represent. We strive to make drinkable, balanced beers with an edge of inventiveness for all beer lovers to enjoy. The 30-barrel Bent Paddle Brewing Co. brewhouse and  fermenters were crafted by our friends at Diversified Metal Engineering (DME) out of Prince Edward Island in Canada.
