Our Story

In 2012, a group of friends having a cup of coffee at a local hangout came up with a brilliant idea. 'Let's start a brewery in Luverne.' At first, it seemed like a pipe dream, but the more it was discussed and researched, the more sense it made. Soon, Luverne Brew Partners was formed and by the fall of 2013, buildings and equipment were purchased, key vendor relationships formed, capital raised, and a plan put in place. By the fall of 2014, the beer was flowing!
