About Swinging Bridge Brewing Company
Swinging Bridge Brewing Company is a community supported micro brewery offering quality craft beer to the community of River Falls. The brewery opened March 17th 2017. The company strives to deliver high-quality beer made from locally sourced ingredients in a comfortable and interesting setting.
The brewery taproom is located downtown River Falls with seating for 50 customers andoffers an array of fresh tap beer. The brewery is a community gathering place offering light food and great beer. The taproom will allows the brewing process to be visible to get a real feel of the locality and freshness of the product made.
Our brewery is a community driven business and is built around the Community Supported Brewery (CSB) and Mug Club membership programs. Our membership programs allow us to build a community around our beer and provide a discount to our members in return for their commitment to the brewery. The CSB program is loosely based on the community supported agriculture model (CSA). Traditionally, Farm CSAs sell produce shares, and in exchange the customer receives a box or bag of fresh produce each week at prices lower than the market rate. Our model will be similar as we will be offering beer shares to our customers. The Mug Club will be a social club for the Taproom promoting camaraderie and love for quality beer. Overall, Swinging Bridge Brewing Company is here to serve the community by serving great beer.
At our core, we are a brewery. We love beer, and we love creating beer for our community. We will always be here brewing fantastic beer and hope you will join us in enjoying it!
We are a community-focused brewery. YOU make this happen. We would not be where we are today if it weren't for the amazing people that have made this happen.
Beer is so much better with friends and food! We partner with local businesses and artisans to bring you the best food to pair with your beer.

Head Brewer/Taproom Manager
Originally from Detroit, Mike spent many years traveling the country before settling in what he now considers his home, River Falls. Throughout the ups and downs of life Mike has alway held onto his love for making beer. His brewing hobby turned into an obsession that led to collaborating with other homebrewers and competing in competitions, all the while refining his skills and expanding his knowledge of the craft.
Mike has for a long time wanted to open a brewery and share his passion for beer with the community. When he’s not sampling local craft beer or creating his own recipes, you can find him throwing a round at the local disc golf course, driving cross country to see his favorite bands or spending quality time with his family.
Know when he serves you a pint of his own beer across the bar that you are the final step in his dream becoming a reality.
