Bent Paddle Brewing Co. officially announced Thursday it has purchased its brewery and taproom at 1912 W. Michigan St. in Duluth and has plans for its nearby office building at 1832 W. Michigan St., which the News Tribune reported on earlier this week .

The brewery paid $942,500 for its taproom and production facility in June, according to county records, a move the company says “reaffirms Bent Paddle’s commitment to grow and thrive in the Lincoln Park Craft District.”

Little was shared about plans for the office building in Thursday’s news release beyond a completion date of 2018. Bent Paddle has submitted renderings to the city planning commission that show a patio and new signage at the 1832 W. Michigan St. location.

More announcements are expected in the coming months as the company said it plans to “further develop the strength of the brewery as a neighborhood anchor business.”
