Jack Pine Brewery opened its doors to the public in January of 2013 with an overgrown homebrewing system in section of a warehouse in Baxter, MN.  The first of its kind in the area and the only brewery within 60 miles, I wanted to bring my long time passion for homebrewing to the area by opening up a professional brewery.  Four years of more than 50% annual growth had us busting at the seams in that little warehouse and yearning for more space.  In the spring of 2017, we moved to our new location on the north side of Baxter on Edgewood Drive.  We have a 15 barrel two vessel brewhouse from Alpha Brewing Operations with two 15 barrel fermenters, four 30 barrel fermenters, and two 30 barrel brite tanks.  We have a two-head Wild Goose canning line with depalletizer and post-fill inline labeler.  We recommissioned the original Jack Pine one barrel brewhouse and brought in two SS Brewtech fermenters and a brite tank to use as a pilot system.  We have grown the brewery into a local favorite with 90% of our 1800 bbl/year production being sold right in our backyard the Brainerd Lakes Area.  We have a presence in the St Cloud area through our distributor limited self-distribution in the rest of the state.  Our taproom boasts 25+ tap lines of which more than half are available only at the brewery.  We’ve built a reputation of having the best selection of high quality craft beer the area has to offer with solid year-round offerings, established seasonals, and frequent one-off batches both from the pilot system and the 15 bbl system.
