About Earth Rider

Fiercely independent Earth Rider Brewery crafts world-class beer with Lake Superior water and peerless ingredients. Earth Rider’s team is proud to sustainably produce beer for the Twin Ports, and the South and North Shores of Lake Superior.

Earth Rider is the first brewery in Superior, Wis. to produce beer for the region since 1967 when Northern Brewing Company ceased operations.

The brewery building was constructed in the late 1880s as a bakery, transformed to a “bakery supply” store during prohibition, and then lasted five generations as a beer wholesaler (Leamon Mercantile).

Earth Rider’s Cedar Lounge taproom sits adjacent to the brewery. The Cedar is a historic Northern Brewing Company tied-house tavern constructed in 1912.

Earth Rider is a member of the Bev-Craft network of independent breweries, comprised of a team of decorated brewers and brewing-industry professionals with a mission to keep independent craft brewing robust.
