Ranked #1 of 48 Restaurants in Red Wing
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Description: The current Red Wing Brewing Company (or “Red Wing Brewery”) was founded in 2011 in Red Wing, Minnesota. We make about 6-7 barrels (bbls) of beer per week, and our beer is produced and sold exclusively at the brewery. Two of our beers are historic brands that were made for the people of Red Wing in the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s: Remmler’s Royal Brew (based on the Remmler Brewery’s 1896 recipe) and Red Wing Premium. We are also bringing back another Red Wing favorite as our brewery’s own Root Beer – Good Old Zimmie’s. On tap will be a rotation of additional beer styles that are new to Red Wing and favorites among craft beer lovers. We also serve local wines, a variety of family beverages, and a dine-in or take-out lunch and dinner menu featuring handmade appetizers, pizzas and calzones.

“Make This Your Destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

First time in Red Wing and so glad we trusted earlier reviews. Thought perhaps was a bit pricey but reconsidered after tasting the calzone with it's fresh, locally produced cheeses and one-of-a-kind crust. Service was top notch from the moment we walked in the door as Norm patiently brought us beer samples until we found the "right"one, describing each we inquired about. The place was full so we opted to eat at the bar where Scott entertained us with info. on the food and opening of the brewery. It was obvious he makes a point to greet as many of his customers as possible with earnest enthusiasm. Our overall experience was so exceptional we returned the following day to share a small Metro pizza, despite being full from our B&B brunch. I agree with a previous reviewer that a medium size pizza would be nice, but not a deal breaker. We look forward to a return visit!

“VIP service, pizza and beer ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

My family was treated like VIPs by the owners despite arriving less than an hour before closing on a cold Sunday night. The server provided samples to both my adult daughter --who prefers wine--and me. She also offered and kept a pizza warm for a late arrival in our party. Fabulous pizza. Recommend the metro and the white pizza.

The porter was right out of England and she won over my daughter with a great beer.

We look forward to returning and passing on recommendations to this gem.

“Best Pizza Crust”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

The pizza crust has the brewer's grain added and is made by the local baker. It was so enjoyable we went to the bakery for desert after lunch. The owners are very accommodating and visit with every guest. Will be back for that sweet pizza dough. Thanks!!

“Best Pizza Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My husband loved the beer (brewed inside this small space) I loved the pizza. I saw other reviews on here and they were right! All local ingrediants when available and the dough is made fresh daily by the bakery in town with the brewer's grains. I think this was my favorite pizza crust ever. Go, go, go!

“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We went to the brewery last Thursday evening. It was so cold out and the place was still full! Friendly and knowledgable staff, excellent pizza, nice atmosphere, and good beer! Will go back for sure! Not a very big place. There were people in line for a table the whole time we were there... Worth waiting! I noticed many come in and pick up pizzas to go. Cool antiques decorated the cozy space and it is interesting seeing the equipment for the brewing process. Pizzas weren't your everyday either, fun choices and a good variety. Nice addition to Red Wing! Happy one year anniversary this week too, Red Wing Brewery!
