Staying true to the brew. Mostly

At Badger Hill Brewing we think some of the best things happen over a beer. Friendships begin, ideas are shared, and some of the best stories are told. Heck, our story began over a beer. Broc and Britt met years ago over beer and they eventually gave little brother Brent his first beer (he was 21 of course). And, the three of us met Michael brewing beer. Our team of four outgrew the space at Lucid Brewing: now we have a new one South of the River, in Shakopee, MN.

We are a group of nice, hard-working, smart, honest and fun individuals, brewing uniquely approachable beers. Mostly American ales, but we consider ourselves adaptable, so you never know what you may find in the taproom.

Our brews can be found throughout Minnesota in restaurants, bars, and liquor stores. Please ask for it. You can also visit our taproom in Shakopee. We’d love to get to know you over a beer.

Cheers!

New Brewery & Taproom coming to Shakopee

We are excited to announce that we will be opening a new production brewery and taproom in the 2nd half of 2014. While full details and plans will be announced in the coming months here is what we can share so far!

  • We will be housed in a 13,000 square foot industrial warehouse with an adjoining 2,500 square foot building, which will serve as the brewery’s taproom and a 1000 square foot patio
  • The  brewery will be located at 4571 Valley Industrial Blvd. S - a mile away from both Canterbury Park and Valleyfair 
  • Expansion will include a new brew house, canning line and capacity to brew our own beer as well as pay it forward to other local MN craft breweries through alternate proprietorship agreements.
  • We could not have gotten this far without our good friends and partners the past 2.5 years at Lucid Brewing
  • The Shakopee location was made possible by the City of Shakopee  City Council and Mayor Brad Tabke with their leadership in passing ordinance changes to allow for a brewery and taproom.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@badgerhillbrewing.com

Cheers!

Partnership with Lucid Brewing
Partnership with Lucid Brewing

As brewery owners, we often get caught up in beers and beer styles in explaining our story, but we also think the Alternating Proprietorship agreement we have with Lucid Brewing is a fantastic story to share, especially in these volatile economic times. Its essence is built upon two breweries, and two groups of owners, helping each other succeed. The Alt/Prop arrangement is designed to let two emerging craft brewers share, and therefore reduce, capital expenditure costs and to leverage each other’s infrastructure. In plain English, Lucid and Badger Hill can each invest in better equipment and can then share that equipment with the other to better utilize it. To learn more about Alt/Prop, the TTB has an excellent circular online at the  TTB site
