By 1880 Minnesota ranked fith in the nation in beer production, with
112 breweries. St. Paul, with 12 breweries, was the hub of regional
brewing activity, led by Stahlmann Cave Brewery, which grew to become
the state's largest brewer in the late 1800s. A favorite not only in
Minnesota, but in neighboring states as well. Although we no longer use
the caves to age our been, we carry on the time-honored brewing
traditions Christopher Stahlmann established for the Cave Brewery over
a century ago. The water today comes from the crystal clear spring
waters bubbling up in Cold Spring, MN. The natural spring waters
discovered in 1874 requires no additional filtration and is considered
by some to be the most purified water in Minnesota.
Minnesota has the ideal natural brewing resources,
climate and soil suited for growing barley, ample fresh water supply;
and cool, natural caves available for aging German Lager-Style Beer and
the freshest ingredients in the New World. This attracted "Old World
Brewers" like Christopher Stahlmann to Minnesota. The same assets are
valued by our Head Brewmaster, Sig Plagens. German-born and trained in
the art of European brewing just as the brewing pioneers that preceded
him. In honor of Christopher Stahlmann's cave-brewing legacy, we offer
our handcrafted specialty beers from the land of blue diamonds at
Brewers Cave. The intensity, personal attention and expertise demanded
of traditional cave-brewers are proudly built into every brew that is
now produced at Brewer's Cave Brewery. Christopher Stahlmann would
not have it any other nor would Sig Plagens!
