Curt Van Asten

Taproom & Events Manager

Curt is our taproom and events manager. A great addition to the staff in 2015 Curt brings with many years of planning, coordination, marketing and management of events. Prior to joining the brewery he helped produce large sporting competitions and expos for events that were hosted all over the Unites States!

Curt is the person you will want to talk with if you you have a question about hosting an event at the brewery.  Anything from a small private group in our loft to renting the brewery for a fundraiser, private/company party, concert or wedding.  Make sure you stop in the taproom to meet Curt and have a beer!  You can also email him directly at

In 2017, as part of the 34th annual National Travel and Tourism Week, Visit Mankato awarded Curt the Attraction Travel and Tourism Award for his service as an outstanding ambassador of Mankato for making visitors feel welcome. "His planning, professionalism and personality, have led to the brewery’s national recognition as Best Beer Bar in Minnesota by the Brewers Association."

Outside of work Curt enjoys finding new music and spending as much time as he can outside with his wife and dogs traveling, camping, fishing, and kayaking.
