Founded in 1986, Summit beer offers great pride to the Twin Cities. Originally located on University Avenue, their beers quickly became local favorites, and the company began to grow rapidly. By 1998 the company’s beer production had exceeded the capacity of the original University Avenue brewery, and a new brewery, designed by architect Peter O’Brien, was built on the west end of St. Paul, overlooking the Mississippi River. Mix concerts will take place in the brewery’s Ratskeller (German for “council room”). All ages are welcome, but if you want a beer you will be carded, so don’t forget your government-issued picture ID.
