Lumberyard Brewing and Beaver Street Brewery on the BeerWise Podcast

Lumberyard Brewing Company & Beaver Street Brewery’s Kelly Hanseth joins the BeerWise Podcast

The newest episode of the BeerWise Podcast is up – another episode from our recent trip to Flagstaff, Arizona.

This episode I am joined by Kelly Hanseth of Lumberyard Brewing Company and Beaver Street Brewery in Flagstaff, Arizona. Kelly’s parents, Winnie and Evan Hanseth opened Beaver Street Brewery, Flagstaff’s first craft brewpub, in 1994. Kelly was a young girl when the brewery opened and has grown up with the brewery as her family’s business. When the city of Flagstaff was looking for ideas on what to do with their historic lumberyard, the Hanseth Family pitched the idea of turning the facility into a production brewery and restaurant. Lumberyard Brewing Company opened its doors in 2010, after the family remodeled and converted the facility.
