Badger Hill Brewing Company started making beer in 2012, sharing production space with Lucid and Bad Weather in a unique arrangement. Currently the brewery is prepping for a move to their own turf, trying to finalize on a property in the southern suburbs. The family run brewery was founded by husband and wife pair Broc and Britt Krekelberg and Broc's brother, Brent. They chose their name based on old English translations of "Broc" and "Brent." The brewery also just added a new head brewer, Michael Koppelman (who will share other duties in the company as well).
The Hot Dish spoke with Britt about the brewery's goals, identity, and the difference between brewing in Colorado and Minnesota.More »
