About the Brewery
The current Red Wing Brewing Company (or “Red Wing Brewery”) was founded in 2011 – 60 years after the closing of the last brewery in Red Wing, Minnesota. It is located in the old brewery district just up the street from the site of the original Red Wing Brewery (in fact, outside our front door, you would have been able to see the old brewery if it was still standing).
Our brewhouse is small (3 ½ barrels), even in comparison with the brewhouses of other small breweries in Minnesota. We make about 6-7 barrels (bbls) of beer per week to keep up with a thirsty public. Our beer is produced and sold exclusively at the brewery, which means that the beer in your glass is as fresh as possible.
Three of our year-round beers are historic brands that were made for the people of Red Wing in the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s: Remmler’s Royal Brew (based on the Remmler Brewery’s 1896 recipe), Red Wing Premium Beer and Cokins Bavarian Red Wing Beer. We are also bringing back another Red Wing favorite as our brewery’s own Root Beer – Good Old Zimmie’s.
On tap will be a rotation of additional beer styles that are new to Red Wing and favorites among craft beer lovers. We also serve local wines, a variety of family beverages, and a dine-in or take-out lunch and dinner menu featuring handmade appetizers, pizzas and calzones.
