One-year-old Northeast brewery NorthGate Brewing has signed a lease for a bigger (still Northeast) space, complete with taproom, reports the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. The new space, located at 783 Harding St. N.E., is about ten times bigger than NorthGate's current space at 3134 California St. N.E.
The brewery currently makes all its beers—focused on British session ales—for distribution and growler sales. The new space will feature a 1,500-square-foot taproom, and NorthGate plans to add 22 oz. bombers. The space also allows for bottling and canning, but co-owner Adam Sjogren said he doesn't know how soon they will add that equipment.
Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal also reports that NorthGate has resolved the lawsuit filed against it by Longfellow brewpub Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, which claimed that NorthGate was a "deceptively similar" name.
