Bryn Mawr Brewing is Now Utepils Brewing®

Brewery Opens Spring of 2016 in Bryn Mawr Neighborhood.

Minneapolis, MN, USA (November 22, 2015) — Contact: Noah Rouen | 612-419-6909

Fresh off completing a successful equity raise of $1,225,000, Bryn Mawr Brewing announced it is changing its name to Utepils Brewing®, the name of the holding company. The word “utepils” is Norwegian for the first beer enjoyed outdoors in the sunshine after a long, dark winter. The word “ute” means outside and “pils” means beer. The “utepils moment” is widely-anticipated and celebrated every Spring by Norwegian beer drinkers.

In announcing the change to investors, founder Dan Justesen said, “Two years ago, when we embarked on a journey to build a great European-style craft brewery, we christened ourselves Utepils Brewing®. Then, after finding the perfect site to build our brewery near the Bryn Mawr neighborhood, we decided to adopt the Bryn Mawr name.”

However, a funny thing happened on the way to the trademark office. After researching the trademark for Bryn Mawr Brewing, Justesen and the ownership group discovered a winery of the same name in Oregon. Meanwhile, investors, fans and friends continued to use the Utepils name and hashtag in social media posts – often sporting the Utepils name from the back of t-shirts in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.

Justesen added, “Utepils quickly became the fan favorite on social media for the brewery. There is nothing more social than enjoying a great beer with friends — so we are following our fans’ lead and building Utepils as our core brand.”

Utepils Brewing® is steeped in the traditions of European brew masters, but will soon be available close to home in Minneapolis, with plans to distribute regionally and nationally. Construction is now underway for the full-production brewery and taproom being built at the site of the former Glenwood Bottling plant. Utepils Brewing® is set to open in early 2016 and will specialize in classic European beer styles and also offer select, special edition seasonal brews.

Special Holiday Offer for VIPER MEMBEERSHIPS®

Just in time for the gift-giving season and to celebrate the new brand, Utepils Brewing® is offering holiday cheer MEMBEERSHIPS® with free beer for 99 years. The exclusive VIPER Program “Very Important Patron, Enthusiast and Recruiter” gives patrons access to the coolest (and only transferable) beer club in town.

Single MEMBEERSHIPs® are $1000, but Utepils Brewing® has a special holiday offer for the first 100 Couple MEMBEERSHIPS ® of $1848 per couple, reduced from $1900. 1848 is the founding date of the German brewery that was the original home of the signature copper kettle that will be displayed in our taproom.

Offer is limited to first 100 couple MEMBEERSHIPS® and expires December 23, 2015. To reserve your VIPER, email MEMBEERSHIP@utepilsbrewing.com.

Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. Signs Lease & Leads Redevelopment of Historic Minneapolis Location

Local craft brewery Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. has announced the signing of its 10-year lease in the @Glenwood development located at 225 Thomas Ave. N in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis.

Minneapolis, MN, USA (July 28, 2015) — Local craft brewery Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. has announced the signing of its 10-year lease in the @Glenwood development located at 225 Thomas Ave. N in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis. The location was home to the Glenwood Inglewood Water Company and the Fruen Mill throughout the late 19th and much of the 20th century, but has sat vacant for many years. The upstart craft brewery is part of a redevelopment plan to turn this historic location into a contemporary new business campus that will also feature trendy restaurant and modern office spaces.

Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. is the development’s third tenant and will be located in a 18,000 square foot warehouse on the southeast end of the business campus. The brewery has hired Minneapolis based LSE Architects to lead the design of it’s new residence. Along with a full production brewery, the location is slated to feature a European themed tap room and an outdoor beer garden on the banks of neighboring Bassett Creek.

The building that Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. will be housed in was originally built in the 1990s and was the bottling plant for the Glenwood Inglewood Water Company. For over 50 years, the company bottled water from the site’s natural springs and distributed it across the Midwest before being sold to the Colorado based Deep Rock Water Company in 1990. These same spring waters will be available to the brewery for use in its beer production.

At Glenwood LLC purchased the 63,000 square foot site in March of 2014 and is leading the redevelopment of the site. The entity is related to PUSH Interactive, a digital advertising company that currently anchors the site.

“Our partners and our company are looking to turn this into a fun and exciting place to work, play, eat, and potentially even live” said Haig Newton of PUSH Interactive. “This is a unique and historic spot in Minneapolis and we’re revitalizing it to its original vibrancy by inviting exciting businesses and creative people to join us.”

Construction on Bryn Mawr Brewing Co.’s brewery will begin later this summer with the expectation of opening to the public in late 2015 or early 2016. Development of the site will continue over the next two years with plans for a 3 to 4-story modern office complex, public walkways and natural space along Bassett Creek, and a rooftop event space.

“This is such an exciting time to be a part of this community,” said Jim Moore of Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. “The support we’ve received from the Bryn Mawr and Harrison neighborhoods and the city of Minneapolis has been tremendous! This redevelopment project will have an incredible impact on and reenergize this historic part of town and Bryn Mawr Brewing Co. is thrilled to be a part of it.”
