Live Well. Drink Well. Be Bold.

Our story

Bold Brewing was born when Beau Raymond and his father, Duluth brewpub owner Rod Raymond, were brainstorming ways to bring the Fitger’s Brewhouse experience to a larger audience. They were constantly being asked by customers, friends, and beer-lovers alike to supply Brewhouse beer beyond the Northshore. However, the logistics of a large-scale brewing operation didn’t line up.

Thus, the Bold story begins….

Our mission at Bold is to bring high quality, storied, craft beer to market while utilizing existing Midwest brewing facilities and maintaining a strong connection to local communities.

Live Well.

We believe in living fulfilling lives, promoting wellness and adventure, delivering compassion and the high ideals.

Drink Well.

We believe to live well, you also need to drink well.

Be Bold.

We believe that when you drink well, you will be bold in your endeavors and the human spirit will grow to unseen heights of achievement and generosity. 

“Living a life without a devotion to excellence dishonors the priceless gifts and talents given to you.”
