A lot of work went into building the Great Northern Brewery because of the rich passion, devotion and respect we have for great beer and the process of brewing it. The story of Black Star is best told by the people who make the beer—including Minott Wessinger, 5th generation brewer and founder of Black Star Double Hopped Golden Lager. These films were created to share The Great Northern Brewing Company’s traditional gravity flow brewing system. We hope you enjoy.
