Yup, It’s Happening!

The first locomotive in the Northern Pacific Railway was a wood-burning engine named the Minnetonka, and it’s job was to haul ties, rails, and other supplies used to help build the railroad along the line westward as it was constructed and advanced  from Carlton, Minnesota. When the line was completed, the locomotive was sold to the Polson Lumber Company. It was renamed “Old Betsy” and hauled timber until 1928 when it was retired and abandoned. Old Betsy was recovered by the Northern Pacific Railway in the mid ’30s and restored it to working order. The sturdy little locomotive is still owned by the BNSF Railroad and is on permanent loan to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth. Our Old Betsy is a sturdy malt-forward Northern English-style brown ale, with 2-row premium brewer’s malt and dark malts for complexity and rich flavor, with balance provided by Magnum and Northern Brewer hops. 5.1% ABV, 30 IBU, 17 SRM.


We are a family friendly brewery located in the clocktower building in the historical NPC near downtown Brainerd.
