Brewery Description:

Summit Brewing Company is a regional craft brewery in St. Paul, Minnesota that brews a wide selection of popular beers. It is sometimes mistakenly believed to be a microbrewery, even though Summit’s output is in the top 50 of breweries in the United States, approximately 80,000 barrels of beer per year. Their flagship beer, an American pale ale (branded Summit Extra Pale Ale) is especially popular in the Twin Cities area. In 1986, Summit founder Mark Stutrud set out to rediscover the traditional brewing methods behind the great handcrafted beers that once flowed throughout the Midwest. Ever since, we’ve been painstakingly brewing beer as stimulating, complex and rich in character as the people who share it. –
