Notes:
Way back in 1986, before craft brewing was even cool, Summit Brewing Company Founder and President Mark Stutrud set out in St. Paul, Minnesota, to make craft beers inspired by old-world brewing traditions and ingredients. Over 30 years have passed since he first brewed our flagship Summit Extra Pale Ale, and it’s safe to say he freaking nailed it.

Today, Summit Brewing continues to infuse traditional recipes with modern ingredients from around the world, crafting high-quality and consistent craft beer out of respect for the hardworking folks who enjoy our beer.

And because we’re independently owned and operated, we get to make craft beer our way.

Summit's brewery is absolutely beautiful. Some of, if not the most advanced brewing technology I've ever seen being used practically. They are very committed to putting out a consistently excellent product. I had the amazing luxury of having a private tour done by Mark himself, and I was blown away. He's a great, down to earth, no bullshit, straight talking kind of guy, and his knowledge of both brewing, and the industry is remarkable. The beer hall is a nice place, and you can watch the brewers at work while you have a couple pints. One of the best experiences I've ever had at a brewery. I will definitely be returning!

Nice place with ample parking and a good (brief) tour. The staff was friendly and overall I would have no problem going there weekly if I lived closer.

this place is an institution, one of the older and more well known of the minnesota breweries, they have an awesome space, definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. they have a whole campus on their property, with a huge brewery mostly hidden from view, but some of the prettiest brewing equipment i have seen anywhere, all copper clad, well polished, and visible from an expansive taproom that has a gymnasium sort of feel. minimalist in there, with picnic tables for seating, a little gaming area, and some room for outside seating along a little river walk when its nice enough outside. the bar is in the front, smallish, without seats, you order there and drink at the tables. they had a nice selection of beers, all their classics and a few of the more innovative beers they do as well. i loved the double ipa, and thought the true brit english ipa was also quite good. all were fresh and well made, without exception. the folks pouring the beer were super nice, and they even had table service once we sat down were we could reorder, and they were super on top of it, really friendly. the place is big, when you walk in to the right there is also a shop and perhaps a private events room, we didnt do much exploring. the vibe in here is great, upbeat and relaxing, all about the beer. i love this kind of taproom, no frills and very comfortable. we had a great time, and i will certainly be back!

Very nice and large taproom with kind of limited hours. The seating is numerous and they have food trucks quite often. They have lots of outdoor seating and plenty of outdoor games. They have events just about every weekend as well. Their beer is top notch. They do nothing big and over the top but their beer is spot on. It is definitely a place I have never had a bad beer form.

Located in an industrial park off West 7th Street in Saint Paul. The tours bring in a good crowd so plan ahead. You also have to sign up online to get a tour. Their hours for their tap room vary. Overall, must-visit for MN beer lovers
