Third Street Brewhouse traces its history all the way back to 1874, when Michael Sargl, a German immigrant, started brewing beer on site. That was the birth of one of the first Minnesota breweries: Cold Spring Brewing Co., which looks a lot different today, over 125 years later.

We weathered Prohibition and the ups and downs of the macro brewing industry. Shifts in the beer industry came when hardworking American people started craving something different, and we began to dabble in craft brewing. In 2012, Third Street Brewhouse was born and became the craft beer division of Cold Spring Brewing Co. We’re also the public face of the larger manufacturing company, so you’ll see our smiling faces when you visit Cold Spring Brewing Co.

We have a wide range of beer types in the portfolio including IPAs, lagers, shandys and more. Today, our craft beer lineup has something for every beer lover’s taste.

Our outdoor patio is dog-friendly/on a leash.
