Earth Rider Brewery Begins Canning Beer

SUPERIOR, Wisc. — Enjoyers of Earth Rider will be able to purchase 12 oz. cans of the brewery’s beer at retail outlets throughout the Twin Ports beginning Thursday. Until now Earth Rider Beer has been exclusively available in crowlers (32 oz. cans) from the Cedar Lounge taproom and on draft at local restaurants and taverns. Cans will be available in the Twin Ports initially and expand this summer to include the South Shore to Ashland, Wisconsin; North Shore to Two Harbors, Minnesota; and other points within the Lake Superior watershed.

“We are excited to reach this milestone,” said Earth Rider founder, Tim Nelson. “Fans of local craft will be able to find Earth Rider Beer in more restaurants and taverns and take it home from their favorite bottle shop.”

Four Earth Rider flagship styles will be put into cans initially: Superior Pale Ale, North Tower Stout, Precious Material Helles, and Caribou Lake IPA.

“This is the fulfillment of the next phase in our goals,” said Nelson. “We intend to serve the corner of Lake Superior with noteworthy beer that’s both local and independent.”


Earth Rider beers are crafted with Lake Superior water and premium hand-selected ingredients by decorated brewers. We brew at the head of the Great Lakes on the Duluth-Superior Harbor for the Twin Ports, and the South & North Shores of Lake Superior.
