Bent Paddle Brewing is the new brewery being opened by veteran brewers Colin Mullen and Bryon Tonnis. Both brewers have local ties to the Duluth area, and are not rookies in the brewing industry. Colin spent years at Barley John’s in New Brighton, and Bryon was a brewer at Rock Bottom in Minneapolis.
The new venture will be a family affair, the wives of both men are owners and partners. They’ll bring their own area of expertise to the operation with experience in distribution and event planning and design.
When I last talked to Colin he was super excited about the progress being made at the brewery, and the location in particular. The brewery & taproom (The Bent Tap) will be in West Duluth on Michigan St.
No word yet on what kind of beer they will be brewing. But, they plan being available in kegs, 12 oz. cans, and growlers.
