In Minnesota we know that summer is meant to be enjoyed, but summer is often to short, and leaves us waiting for next year.

At Boathouse Brothers Brewing we captured that summer feeling and brought it a little closer to home, and the best part is you can experience summer all year long.

In our Taproom you will feel like your relaxing at the cabin or having fun with your friends on the pontoon.  

Stop in have a beer, or take home a growler if you're in a rush, unlike summer we are here all year round.


The "Brothers"

meet the "Brothers"

Emmett Swartout

Emmett grew up spending his summers bunking in the original boathouse on his grandparent's lake property in northern Minnesota.  When he moved to Prior Lake, he found the lake-life community was strong in the town, but the brewery scene had yet to make a strong stand in the southern suburbs.  Boathouse Brothers Brewing had been a constantly evolving concept in his head for the better part of a decade.  All it took was one little push, his buddy Kevin saying "I'm in!", and planning officially went from campfire banter to business loans and tank orders.

Kevin Lethert

Kevin grew up spending his summer weekends at the family cabin, only a few miles from Emmett.  Kevin and Emmett became fast friends, due partly to the fact that Emmett was the one serving him beer, but mostly to their mutual appreciation for "a good" beer.  When Kevin was pitched the idea for making their hobby a full time endeavor, it took Kevin a moment to answer, mainly because he was finishing his beer.  Two words later, "I'm In!"  and it was no turning back. Kevin had become an official Boathouse Brother.
