PiNts FoR a Cause

Pints for a Cause is another avenue for Castle Danger Brewery to give back to our local community. It’s an employee-driven program that benefits local non-profits by donating money from every pint sold of a specialty brewed beer to causes important to our community.

In 2023, we will be brewing beers for these non-profits:

Friends of the Flathorn-Gegoka Trails

Two Harbors Area Food Shelf

Lake County Rescue Squad

Community Partners

Finland Food Chain

FrequeNtlY AsKed QuestioNs

Castle Danger got its name from the dangerous reef that runs between two sets of cliffs, ending at Gooseberry River. Before Highway 61 came in the 1920’s, all traffic was by boat. Ship captains would know to stay well back from the shore between the two cliffs, or “castles,” because of the dangerous reef. As our brewery was originally located at Castle Haven Cabins in Castle Danger, it was fitting to name the brewery after something so close to us.

We do not serve food. However, we have chips, salsa and pretzels available for purchase in the taproom. There are also many delicious restaurants in the Two Harbors area that you can get take-out from and bring into the taproom, or bring your own food from home.

Yes! We welcome families and pets. Pets are only allowed on our patio. All kids under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Interested in purchasing a keg of our dangerously good ales? We cannot legally sell directly from the brewery. The easiest way is to contact your local liquor store in Minnesota that sells Castle Danger beer and order a keg through them.

We have a handy Beer Finder right here on our website. You can search by location or by brand to see which establishment near you carries our beer or a specific brand you’re looking for.

Our main focus is selling beer in our home state of Minnesota. However, we have started to distribute to select border territories such as Fargo, ND and Douglas, Bayfield, and the northern half of Ashland counties in Wisconsin.
We do not host weddings at this time.

We do not! Not anymore. You are welcome to bring parties here, but everything is first come, first serve. No catering.

Our George Hunter Stout is brewed in honor of our brewer and founder’s great-great grandfather. George Hunter was an Irish immigrant from Belfast, Ireland who owned and operated the Iron Range Brewing Co. in Tower, MN during the late 1800’s up until Prohibition. And yes, the picture on the can is the real George Hunter.

Our beer is not gluten free. Nutritional facts are also not available for our beer, but we applaud you for being concerned about it.

Clint and Jamie designed the logo by using the MacFarlane family crest as the base and added their neighbor’s view of Lake Superior: a white pine tree on an actual Castle Danger cliff overlooking Lake Superior. In the winter of 2006, Clint took this picture at sunrise with the intent that it would make the perfect beer label for his homebrew. From there, we digitized and enhanced it, creating the logo that you see today.

The date listed on the bottom of our cans and on the outside of our cartons is the packaged date. It is NOT the expiration date. Our beers range between 90-120 days of shelf stability. Our George Hunter Stout is 365 days!
