Bent Paddle Brewing Company
Bent Paddle Brewing Company was founded in 2013 and has become Minnesota’s 6th largest production brewery. In just a few short years Bent Paddle has established itself as a catalyst for a growing community of craft-centric businesses in Duluth’s Lincoln Park Craft District while remaining laser focused on producing high-quality, award-winning brews. Bent Paddle’s brewing philosophy is based on creating beers that “Bend the Tradition” of the classic beer styles they represent.
Fun Fact: Bent Paddle is named for the bent shaft canoe paddle that Co-Owner and Director of Brewing Operations, Bryon Tonnis used to mix his mash when brewing at Rock Bottom Brewery prior to starting Bent Paddle. The paddle broke during his last brew with Rock Bottom and now hangs on the wall of the Bent Paddle taproom in Duluth’s Lincoln Park.
