The original Thirsty Pagan brewery

The original location of the Thirsty Pagan Brewery

Brewery History

In May of 2006 Susan and Steve Knauss purchased the existing Twin Ports Brewing Co. This simple sentence gives insight to the simple approach that these two took in producing a wonderful company, Thirsty Pagan Brewing. Building on a firm foundation of pizza and beer, our two entrepreneurs quickly took a down and out location to a thriving destination. "We recognize our potential in focusing on just two things, pizza and beer. Do those two things correctly, and the world will come to us," says Steve Knauss; and obviously, they have.

In February 2011, Gustave Axelson of the New York Times hit the road for a midwestern beer tour of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Axelson's tour included a stop at Thirsty Pagan, but you'll have to read the New York Times article to find out the rest.

Just recently, Thirsty Pagan has celebrated their 8th year anniversary. "We continue to fine tune our well oiled machine, and look out for our next great adventure, just around the corner!" What that is, Steve would not elude to... However, with the Pagan's pizza and beer as their foothold on the restaurant community, we can only imagine what these folks may have up their sleeves.

Brewery Selections

We have expanded the selection of beer, so there are up 16 different varieties, something for everyone! We feature 7 different house specialties: North Coast Amber, Derailed Ale, Burntwood Black, India Pagan Ale, Lawn Chair, Velo Saison, and Trouble Maker Tripel.

One of the seasonal brews is often found on our hand pump. This wonderful invention allows us to have an English style beverage available at all times. The beers on this tap have a bit more flavor, and are sometimes dry hopped. The hand pump is always served in 20 ounce glasses the way the English do it!

Our seasonal beverages rotate out rather quickly as they are very popular, so, make sure to grab a growler on your way out the door if you find something you like. Because, when you come back for that same awesome seasonal, it may already have been rotated out!

Want to take our beer home with you to share with your friends? Can do! We sell growlers (64 oz and 32 ozcontainers). Even on Sunday. We will also fill other breweries growlers if you bring them in. We aren't fussy, we just want you to enjoy quality beer. Doesn't everyone?
