Minnesota beer, food, and culture magazine, The Growler, recently interviewed our Head Brewer, Jeff, for his account of how the startup process and story behind Portage. For the whole article, please click here, or check out this small excerpt below.

"Surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest, the small town of Walker, Minnesota, is a port to Walker Bay on the western edge of Leech Lake, and is a thoroughfare for bicycles, canoes, kayaks, motorized boats, and all kinds of nature lovers. Most buildings in downtown slope toward the lake: the local economy literally rising from the water.

It’s only natural then that the aesthetic of the town’s new brewery, Portage Brewing Company, is just as intertwined with the outdoors."
