Assistant Brewer: Revelation Ale Works

Revelation Ale Works is an independent, craft microbrewery, located in Hallock, MN. We have been growing rapidly since our grand opening in February 2017. Our team is growing! We currently have a brewery/taproom located in a renovated 1930s service shop. We are now in renovation of a 5200 sq. foot production brewery, which is adjacent to the current building. With our 7 bbl system, we sell most of our brews through self-distribution to over 100 locations. Our current expansion allows us to upgrade to a 15bbl brewhouse and a commercial canning line.
