Summit's Rebellion Stout brewed by the Summit Brewing Company
in St. Paul, Minnesota
Stout is single-hopped with a new UK dwarf hop named after a Celtic queen who
led the fight against the Romans. Brewed with the quintessential Stout malt from
fiercely independent County Cork, Ireland. For a feistier Stout with spicy,
floral hop notes and a hearty, roasted malt character.
Rebellion Stout marks the second entry in Summit’s Union series, where new and
more obscure ingredients are combined with traditional techniques to produce
limited-availability beers. While most brewers focus on the ingredients required
to produce a certain style or idea of a beer, the Union concept is based upon
first acquiring new ingredients then combining them in creative ways.

History of Summit Brewing Company
The brewery was founded in 1986 by local brewer Mark Stutrud and a
group of his friends in an old auto parts warehouse on St. Paul's
University Avenue. Their beers quickly became local favorites, and
the company began to grow rapidly. In 1987, the Great Northern
Porter won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival and was
featured on the cover of Michael Jackson's New World Guide to Beer.
By 1998, the company's beer production had exceeded the capacity of
the original University Avenue brewery, and a new brewery was built
on the west end of St. Paul, overlooking the Mississippi River.
Having outgrown it, Summit sold its 1938-vintage brewing equipment
to Mt. Shasta Brewing Company in Northern California. They then
purchased a set of brewing equipment built in 1971 from the
Hürnerbräu Brewery in Ansbach Germany.
In 2009 Summit launched the Unchained Series. The brewery asks their
brewers to brew any beer of their choice - which they then bottle,
keg and sell. They have brewed the following beers: Kölsch, Belgian
Golden Ale, Black Ale, Gold Sovereign Ale, Honeymoon Saison,
Imperial Pumpkin Porter, Dunkle Weizen & India Rye Ale.
