Our team is comprised of lake dwellers, bikers, fishermen, hikers, and home brewers who all share a strong connection to the outdoors and craft beer. Being situated within Chippewa National Forest, off the banks of Leech Lake, we're designing products around the hearty conditions of Northern Minnesota. Whether that's a beer recipe or gear to pack it in, our products are tested and ready for the fishing holes, woodland hikes, and campfires that lie ahead.

Current hours for the taproom are posted below. Also, be sure to stay updated with brewery happenings and area adventures by subscribing to In The North. 

Established in April of 2017. On ahead.

Our Brewery


Our Brewery


We focus on local wild yeast cultivation and brewing, with a mission to produce hybrid ales styles that are complex, crushable, and disruptive to most standard styles.
