The vision and dream of Back Shed Brewing started many years ago. As the Schlecht brothers traveled to various parts of the United States for work, they would try to find unique craft beers and local breweries along the way. They savored the feel of these breweries, their uniqueness, their handcrafted beer, their people, their way of life, and the sense of community within the walls of each brewery they adventured to. While they soaked in experiences of trying locally brewed beers, they would dream of how to make it happen in Waite Park. That’s when they decided to take the first step of the journey and test out making craft beer at Crafts Direct by putting in a ½ bbl pilot system in our back shed. Our talented and passionate brewing friend, Chris, was willing to make beer and see where this adventure would take us. A beautiful bond and partnership was born with the brewer, Chris. The Schlecht family united with Chris to make this dream a reality.
After almost 2 years of brewing in the back shed, Back Shed Brewing was born. Our goal is to provide a great atmosphere that inspires connection, community and creativity and to enjoy some deliciously brewed local craft beers within the walls of Back Shed Brewing.
