Clifford and Michael Lindgren always talked of starting a business together. In 2018 we founded Lindgren Craft Brewery with a passion for brewing great-tasting beers rooted in community, agriculture, and Adventure.
At Lindgren Craft Brewery we are about putting the beer first. We are made up of explorers, scientists, and farmers who represent the hardworking men and women of our community. We work to pay attention and develop every detail that goes into the beers we put into your hands.
To us, “Adventurously Brewed” means using fresh ingredients to create high quality classics while pushing the envelope to brew unique combinations.
Drinkers deserve to experience a connection with the beers they are drinking. To our drinkers we want “Adventurously Brewed” to represent the moments experienced while sharing a craft brew around a campfire with friends, telling family stories over a vintage barrel aged ale at a holiday dinner, or simply those little moments that are most meaningful to the ones in attendance. Thank you for joining us on our journey as we Live Life Adventurously Brewed.

About The Bank
Duncannon National Bank was organized in 1889, with the old site at the intersection of High and Cumberland Streets. Due to the bank’s growth in 1924, a new building was built at 5 North Market Street using Indiana limestone, making the building fireproof. Its long history included numerous renovations and mergers, finally resulting in PNC shuttering the branch in 2016. On January 8, 2020 it was sold to Mary-Jane and Clifford Lindgren to become the new home of Lindgren Craft Brewery. Want to learn more about how we’re revitalizing The Bank?
