Earth Rider Brewery Set To Break Ground In Superior

SUPERIOR, Wis. – A well-known Twin Ports brewer and owner of the Cedar Lounge in Superior is moving closer to opening a brewery.

The signage for Earth Rider Brewery is now up on the Cedar Lounge building on North Tower Avenue.

Owner Tim Nelson says construction for the brewery will begin around June 1 at the neighboring building.

Equipment will land the first week of August, brewing will start September and beer will be pouring by October.

“Making beer is a special connection you form — this bond you do with the community. It’s really an amazing thing. So, I’m looking forward to being in that role again,” Nelson said.

Nelson expects to offer tours of the brewery.

Meanwhile at Cedar Lounge, 16 tap lines are being installed to carry the Earth Rider beer and other Twin Ports and Wisconsin-made craft beers.
