It’s been months in the making, but Back Channel Brewing is set to open next month on the shores of Seton Channel in Spring Park.
Melissa Langseth is a Westonka native and one of the brewery’s owners. She said she’s excited to be opening a business so close to her childhood home.
“I grew up in Minnetrista,” Langseth said. “My parents actually gave us a little plot of land and so we thought it would be really cool to grow hops and then eventually serve those in our beer a couple years down the road once they’re at full mature state.”
Langseth is one of four co owners working to get Back Channel open. Her fiance Josh Leddy and their friends Matt Olson and Joe Meehan round out the ownership quartet. Come August, not only will the brewery be opening its doors, but Leddy and Langseth will also be tying the knot.
