Summit Brewing Company was founded in 1986 by Mark Stutrud.

Summit Brewing Goes Green
Since St. Paul is one of the greenest cities in Minnesota, Summit Brewing Company utilizes their resources to produce eco-friendly “green” beers. They employ a water reduction process that saves 2.7 million gallons of water per year. The brewers at Summit also use ambient air during the winter to cool their product which can then be re-used in the summer instead of wasting electricity. They have also implemented a program to reduce 200,000 pounds of waste from being funneled into landfills annually. Another caveat is this St. Paul brewery utilizes compostable material for all of their disposable cups being used at outdoor events.
