About Us

History. Tradition. Quality.

Cold Spring Brewing Co. dates back to 1874, and has a rich history not many breweries this side of the Atlantic can claim.

Our story began long before we built our brewery, with a spring fed with pure, prehistoric glacial lake water filtered through granite for thousands of years. In the 1500s, the large, natural spring was noted by French-Canadian trappers traveling along the Red River Trail. Over time our spring became a popular stop for westbound settlers. So popular, in fact, that the town of Cold Spring, Minnesota formed up around it in 1853.

Naturally, we built our brewery at the spring – a decision soon followed by 125 years of success and award winning brews. Today, Cold Spring Brewing Co. includes Monarch Custom Beverage and Third Street Brewhouse, and has grown into the nation’s #1 specialty drink producer. Although we’re always evolving, we remain committed to quality.
