INTENTIONALLY CRAFTED BEER AT BLACKSTACK BREWING
The Johnson family has had a long love affair with great beer. In the 1990s, patriarch Scott Johnson owned All Saints Brands, Inc., a distribution company that helped bring European classics like La Trappe, Tripel Karmeliet, and Pauwel Kwak to Minnesota.
After many years of careful planning and lots of hard work, the entire family launched BlackStack Brewing in 2017. If you stop at the brewery on any given day, you’ll likely find one of the Johnsons stocking inventory, checking on the newest beer recipe, or serving a customer.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: NO SHORTCUTS
There are a few things we care deeply about: using quality ingredients, delivering a clean and distinct flavor, and offering an ever-evolving range of styles and varieties. We want to make outstanding, intentionally crafted beer. And we never want to be predictable.
Just as important is our collaborative approach to creating the beer we love. Everyone who works at BlackStack is encouraged to suggest improvements to our process and our menu, which has resulted in more and better offerings.
And there’s typically a food truck parked just outside our front doors serving some of the best gastronomical delights in the Twin Cities.
