In January, Bent Brewstillery, which debuted at last summer’s All Pints North Festival in Duluth, announced a merger with Roseville-based Pour Decisions Brewing Company. Pour Decisions brewer Kristen England — whose beers never got the attention they deserved — is staying put to man the brewhouse. That means expanded availability of England’s amazing sour beers in addition to the Nordic Blonde and Dark Fatha American Emperial Stout from the original Bent Brewstillery lineup. On the distilling side, owner and president Bartley Blume leads with an un-aged whiskey and a highly botanical gin. 1744 Terrace Drive, Roseville; 1-844-879-2368; bentbrewstillery.com

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but two olds can indeed create something new. In January, Bent Brewstillery, which made its initial debut at last summer’s All Pints North Festival in Duluth, announced a merger with the Roseville-based Pour Decisions Brewing Company. The result was a company with new vigor, new beers, an expanded taproom and a new distillery. Pour Decisions brewer Kristen England — whose beers never got the attention they deserved — is staying put to man the brewhouse at the reorganized Brewstillery. That means expanded availability of England’s amazing sour beers as well as intriguing, modern twists on historic brews, in addition to the Nordic Blonde and Dark Fatha American Emperial Stout from the original Bent Brewstillery lineup. On the distilling side, owner and president Bartley Blume is leading off with an un-aged whiskey and a highly botanical gin.
