Founded in 2019 in Fridley, Minnesota, Forgotten Star Brewing was forged from a building rich with history and defined by Excellence and Efficiency. Today, we incorporate these values into every aspect of our brewery, from our brewing process and taproom space, to our people, atmosphere and beer!
TRULY A FORGOTTEN STAR
From 1929 to 1941, the Northern Pump Company occupied our facility as a manufacturer of water pumps. Within months of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Northern Pump Company shifted its operations to naval production for the war effort.
The facility quickly became one of the most efficient and excellent WWII manufacturers, earning a military award for “Excellence in Production”, which is represented by the E on the north stack! If a facility maintained excellence in production for six months, an accompanying star would be awarded with the E. Six stars accompanied with an E, means our facility was awarded seven times throughout WWII for its excellence in production!
Even more amazing, out of the 86,000 WWII manufacturing facilities, less than 4,300 received the E, and only eight facilities received six or more stars! Today, Forgotten Star Brewing stands in one of the only two of the top eight WWII manufacturing facilities still standing!
