After three years in business, Duluth’s Warrior Brewing has announced that it will close. The brewery, which is in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, confirmed its impending closure on its Facebook page. The owners saying they will “sell/close the brewery by April.”
“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our plans to sell to a new owner or close the brewery by April. This decision did not come easily for us as this has been a dream come true to not only craft some of the finest beer in the northland, but to also give back to numerous deserving nonprofits in our region and beyond! We cannot thank you enough for all your support and dedication to our dream for these last three years . . . Thank you again so much Warriors! It’s been a blast!” the social media post stated.
Warrior Brewing was founded in 2020 by a group of disabled veterans including owners Matt Caple and Ben Gipson. They took over the space that was vacated by Lake Superior Brewing. Lake Superior Brewing closed in January 2020.
The veteran-owned brewery officially began brewing beverages in 2021. In May 2023 it expanded to open a tap room.
Warrior Brewing provided opportunities for local nonprofits serving veterans and first responders to take part in brewing with the company, with a portion of proceeds from collaborations the being given back to the nonprofits.
