ALEXANDRIA — Northmen Brewing Co., of Bold North Cellars, plans to expand its facilities to accommodate the brewery’s continued growth since its founding in 2019.

In the third quarter of 2022 alone, 22 Northmen Brewing Co., brewed a record number of kegs, an amount the brewery’s owners, Tyler and Michelle Bredeson, expect to increase significantly in the coming years.

The project includes the addition of a new beer production building and increasing the size of their taproom.

The new production building will house all brewing equipment and create space for the addition of canning equipment to the brewery’s operations. This update comes after the state of Minnesota passed a new law in May 2022 allowing craft breweries throughout the state to sell off-sale beer from their taprooms.

Construction of the new production building, positioned next door to the current building, will begin in late October. The brewery expects to have off-sale available for purchase by late spring 2023.


The existing production area will be renovated into a larger taproom with increased space for customers and gatherings. Construction is expected to begin during this winter with estimated completion by late spring 2023.

“From the beginning, the support of our local community has been incredible, allowing the brewery grow and thrive. Thank you to everyone who has supported us,” Michelle Bredeson said. “We’re thrilled to expand our production capabilities that will allow more people to embrace their Beerventurous spirit!”
