Contract Brewing

With nearly forty years of experience, the crew at Summit Brewing has a wealth of experience that can’t be matched in the Midwest. Located just off Interstate 35E, perched atop the Mississippi river bluff in Saint Paul, MN, Summit is uniquely positioned to serve not just our great state of Minnesota, but the Midwest and beyond.

Drawing on our deep expertise and experience, Summit has produced award winning brews, seltzers and now THC beverages. Our capabilities start with a four vessel 170 bbl brewhouse, before moving into an expansive cellar of fermentation vessels and brite tanks. We finish either through bottling, canning (with optional pasteurization) or racking with automated palletization.

Summit is no stranger to the world of contract or co-pack services, having serviced multiple customers for nearly twenty years. We do, however, work best with larger customers looking for batch sizes beginning at 100 bbls with multiple runs per year. Our capacity tops out at 250,000 bbls per year, with volume available.
