Bent Paddle Brewing Prepares to Expand
DULUTH, Minn.– Bent Paddle Brewing is gearing up to expand.
The Duluth brewery is planning to double the size of their brewing building where a majority of their beer is produced.

Bent Paddle will begin its expansion this August. The brewery building is expected to be in full use by early 2021.
