Peter Simpson: 1974-2017

It is with profound sadness that we need to pass on some news regarding the passing of our friend and business partner Peter Simpson. Peter always put his customers first and we will miss his infectious charm, high energy, and deep appreciation and passion for good malt. 

Peter passed away peacefully on May 20th following a short battle with cancer.

Brewery Local: Roets Jordan Brewery

Jordan, MN
Population: 5,873 

It sounds like the start of a bad joke: How many landslides does it take to start a brewery? The historic Jordan Brewery was built in 1866 and has survived a multitude of tribulations: prohibition, a fire, abandonment and plans to tear it down. Built at the base of a river bluff where caves could be carved into the hillside to lager beer, its location would ultimately be its downfall.
