First and foremost, we want to make good beer in Thunder Bay and be a great member of our community.

Our Story

Starting with an idea formed over sharing a home brew with friends and bringing that craft beer love to our community of Thunder Bay, Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. slowly grew with hard work and supportive customers from a few beers in 2012 to a diverse portfolio of beers daily. 

Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. moved from its starter home to its current site in 2016 and added to the packaging and production line. Within a year, a unique taproom experience developed that looks over our many stainless tanks and an inclusive storefront to showcase our merchandise and some local collaborations that greets everyone when you arrive at our door.

Our Team

We believe in not only building a great team, but building a family, and we are lucky enough to have done both. Every job is interconnected and everyone needs to work together, sharing the same goal, making and sharing great beer for everyone to enjoy!

Our Taproom

Come in and grab one of our fresh Northern beers in the taproom. We have some delicious local snacks, but no kitchen, so feel free to bring in food, chill, have a beer, and enjoy!


Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. is proud to be a community supporter. We care about where we live and are always looking for ways to help the city that has helped us grow. We consider ourselves a community hub and a place where anyone can come and enjoy a beer with friends.

From January 1 until February 14, for every SGBC product sold at participating Licensee locations, $0.50 from us will be donated to local charities. We love supporting local and want to celebrate all of our amazing Licensees with the Craft Cares movement to show you that #CraftCares. Our team is helping our Licensees make a positive impact with the charities and organizations that they care about, giving back, one beer at a time.
