Great Waters Brewing Company opened in March of 1997. Located in the Historic Hamm Building in the heart of downtown Saint Paul, they are just steps from all downtown arenas, theaters and hotels. Their building rests on the original site of the St. Paul Cathedral, where they are blessed with a natural spring water well.  The secret to their fabulous hand-crafted beers: holy water from this well!

Over the years, they have created over eighty-five different beers, and have won numerous awards including a Gold Medal from the Real Ale Festival for our Old Bastard Ale. On any given day they will have up to NINE hand-crafted beers on tap, including four CAMRA compliant cask-conditioned ales.

After a paddleboard tour, you may want to continue the party outdoors, and Great Waters has the best patio in town, located on Saint Paul’s only pedestrian mall. Whether you’re enjoying a pint in the summer sun after paddleboarding or sitting on their Ice Patio during the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, you will experience great beer, great food, and great people at Great Waters Brewing Company.
