Warrior Brewing Company is the culmination of two disabled veterans, determined to produce some of the regions finest craft beer while simultaneously continuing to serve the military, veteran, and first responder programs within their community and beyond.
Co-founder and Director of Operations, Matt Caple, was first exposed to craft beer and homebrewing while in the Army stationed in Colorado Springs, CO. Like many homebrewers, Matt found himself more and more fascinated with the intricacies of the brewing process, and would eventually find himself soaking up knowledge while volunteering at local craft breweries in Colorado. After moving back to Duluth, Matt joined the Northern Ale Stars, a local area homebrew club, where he further refined his craft. Feeling somewhat incomplete after leaving the service, Caple found solace in continuing to serve veterans, volunteering at the VFW, and eventually co-founding the Lake Superior Warriors; a non-profit dedicated to help disabled veterans reintegrate back into society following their military service by way of community service, and hockey.
Co-founder and Head Brewer, Ben Gipson, shares a similar story with Matt, having a passion for craft beer, and over a decade’s worth of homebrewing experience. However, Ben took his passion for brewing and turned it into a career, making the jump into the professional brewers circuit, serving as a head brewer at Canal Park Brewing Company for the last three years, and earning awards for his masterful creations both regionally and nationally.
