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 our own brewery and taproom South of the River, in Shakopee, MN.
As of January 2016 we have a 20bbl, 3-vessel brewhouse [a barrel (bbl) is 31 US gallons], 250bbl of fermentation tanks and 120bbl of bright beer tanks. We package our beer into kegs and 12oz cans.
Our brewing equipment was provided by American Beer Equipment in Lincoln, NE. We buy most of our malt and hops from Rahr Malting, also in Shakopee, MN.
We give tours of the brewery every Saturday at 2pm. Sign up or just show up. We invite fellow brewers to stop by and shoot the shit. Homebrewers are welcome to try out our brewing water or yeast slurry, just let us know in advance.
Our brews can be found throughout Minnesota in restaurants, bars, and liquor stores. Please ask for it by name. All of our beers, including limited small-batch beers, are available at our taproom in Shakopee. Stop by for a pint and leave with a growler of fresh beer for later.
Not that Badger
We are not a Wisconsin brewery. A bunch of Minnesotans through and through. Although we like our neighbors to the East, our name was derived from the Old English meaning of Broc and Brent’s names. Plus, Badgers are tenacious, and so are our brewers.
