Warrior Brewing Company is the culmination of two disabled veterans, determined to produce some of the region's finest craft beer while simultaneously continuing to serve the military, veteran, and first responder programs within their community and beyond.
Founders Benjamin Gipson and Matt Caple took over the location that Lake Superior Brewing Company used to occupy in the Lincoln Park neighborhood and began building their brewery in late 2020. By May 2021, after countless hours of sweating copper, washing walls, sealing floors, and trudging through the permitting process, Warrior Brewing Company was officially brewing beer.
True to their name, Warrior Brewing Company will specialize in unique and high gravity offerings that aren’t normally found in the local area; barrel-aged Imperial Stout, Lactose Double IPA, and Golden Ale brewed with locally sourced wildflower honey. Local nonprofits that serve veterans and first responders will be given opportunities monthly to take part in brewing the barrel-aged Barbarian Imperial Stout, from which a portion of the proceeds from the collaboration beer will be given back to the nonprofit. This gives local area veterans and first responders a unique opportunity to take part in the professional brewing process side by side with Ben and Matt in the brewhouse. Over time, Warrior Brewing Company intends to open up employment opportunities to local area veterans as well. To all those who have served before and after, here’s to you.The brewery does not yet have a taproom that is open to the public, but it does have plans to open one in the future. https://beerdabbler.com/veteran-owned-warrior-brewing-company-serving-up-craft-beer-in-duluth/
