Meet Neil Caron – he’s our award winning Pilot Brewer! Our Pilot Brewery is attached to our taproom and is responsible for designing new recipes, production techniques, ingredient trials as well as brewing beers that can only be found in our taproom.
Our Pilot Brewery is a 7bbl DME System that mimics our 30BBL Production brewery so that we are able to scale up our test recipes for production.
Give Neil a wave next time you see him brewing in our taproom!
Pets / Dogs
Unfortunately our Dept of Ag license prohibits dogs inside our Taproom unless they are certified service animals. Our patio is dog friendly as well as our outdoor plaza space.
What events do you have going on?
Where can we park?
We have a parking lot adjacent to our production facility at 1912 W Michigan St. The parking lot behind our taproom is owned and operated by the Enger Lofts and not available to our guests. Free street parking is available if our lot is full. Do not park in the Auto Zone dirt lot as you may be subject to their towing policy.
Handicap parking? We have two dedicated handicap space located on the left had side of our building with handicap ramp access to the Taproom
Can I park over night? While we all like a good parking lot camp site, our parking lot is used for large truck logistics the keep our Taproom and Brewery functioning.
Do you have food?
We have various dry snacks available for purchase: chips and salsa, meat sticks, pretzels, nuts and popcorn.
Can we bring in outside food?
Absolutely, if the food you are bringing in was produced in a commercial kitchen (Restaurant, Grocery Store and pretty much any pre-packaged food is good to go) Sadly, this means you have to leave the crockpot home, and we know how hard that is.
Do you take Reservations?
Can you fill non-Bent Paddle growlers?
Yes, if it designed for beer and 64oz and it can be sealed and is labeled with an alcohol warning we can find a way to fill it. Note, there may be exceptions to this, in which case, we have glass growlers available for purchase.
Do you offer growler credits/deposits?
While we don’t offer credits for growlers as once you purchase the glass, it’s yours. We do offer a reduced rate on fills, when filling your glass growlers. We will also happily re-cycle or re-use Bent Paddle growlers that you no longer use.
Do you offer private rentals?
Do you offer gift cards?
What are your online store policies?
Is Smoking allowed?
While we don’t allow smoking in our Taproom and grounds, we do have smoking receptacles located 20 feet from each entrance per Duluth city ordinance.
