AFS Twin Cities Chapter and ASM Minnesota are winding the program year with a joint social at St. Paul Brewing (formerly Flat Earth Brewing), on Wednesday, May 15th, 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

A History… Theodore Hamm Brewing Company was established in 1865 when Theodore Hamm, a German immigrant, inherited the Excelsior Brewery from his friend and business associate, A. F. Keller. Keller had constructed his brewery over artesian wells in a section of the Phalen Creek valley in St. Paul, Minnesota known as “Swede Hollow.” During Prohibition the plant produced soft drinks, but returned to the beer business in 1933. During its prime years, the 1950s and ’60s, it was a major employer on St. Paul’s East Side, and it became the Stroh’s Brewery in the mid-1980s before closing in 1997.

In another part of St. Paul, Flat Earth Brewing started in 2007 on Benson Avenue, south of Highland Park, and quickly became known for its hand-crafted assortment, including its Angry Planet Pale Ale and the popular Cygnus X-1 Porter, which is named after a black hole. In 2013, when the brewery outgrew its Highland Park location, it moved into the Hamm Buildings 7 and 8, which were the former keg house and horse stable. It has an expansive indoor space and outdoor patio area and creating a brew house atmosphere, recently changing its name to encompass the vast brewing history in St. Paul: St. Paul Brewing.
