Randy was first exposed to fresh, local beer as an exchange student in West Germany (yes, that was a long time ago!) After college and years of bland macro-beer, Randy headed west to Colorado. Being the mid-'90's, he found himself in the midst of a burgeoning craft brewing scene. Managing fine dining restaurants presented the opportunity to share his new love of microbrews with customers and friends. He began his home brewing career in 1998 when his future wife gave him a kit for their first Christmas back in Northfield. Over the years he discovered he really enjoyed the art and science of this marvelous craft. In an effort to improve his skills, he joined a few home brew clubs, entered contests and became a certified beer judge. His love for making beer grew to match his love for sharing it. Having planted firm roots in this town he calls home, he eagerly awaits the opportunity to bring local, delicious, and varied craft beers to Northfield.
Favorite beer: Tabernash Munich
Laura is a zealous home-brewer and craft beverage enthusiast. With a graduate degree in counseling psychology, Laura jokes she’ll be a great bartender. A bit of a renaissance gal, Laura has also worked in retail and food service, professional writing and editing, and non-profits in the creative arts and youth center milieus. Laura is proud to be an engaged citizen of Northfield and is eager to create positive relationships with other local businesses and members of the community. She sees Imminent as a sustainability-oriented business that supports a vibrant community of farmers, small business owners, artists and musicians. Laura’s favorite place to be (besides the brewery, of course) is in the stoker’s saddle of a grasshopper-green tandem bike somewhere Out West with a mountain range in full view…
Favorite beer: Currently, Peche Flanders Style Blonde from Culmination Brewing in Portland. I never thought I’d say that about a fruit beer, but there it is…A forever favorite is New Belgium’s Two Below. New Belgium was the first craft brewery I grew to love for their delicious brews, beautiful vision and their wit!
In 1994, the “townie” of the group, took her St. Olaf art degree and headed to Colorado to experience life outside of Northfield. This is where she found her future husband and also the wonderful flavors of microbrews. She noticed each brewery had their own unique label and this is one of the things that inspired her to pursue graphic design. While balancing her freelance business and 4 kids (2 teens and twin 8 yr old boys), she will use her design and marketing skills (with help from her marketing friends) to help Imminent Brewing become a place people from all over MN will want to visit. She hopes the taproom is a comfortable and inviting place for all ages to rest or play, spend time with friends & family, and of course to enjoy a favorite Imminent brew.
Favorite beer: Imminent's Honey Basil Ale
While in graduate school, Derek became enthralled with craft beer and the ways breweries, especially New Belgium Brewery, were able to engage and enrich a community. That same kind of community-oriented branding and marketing has informed Derek in his current role as a solar consultant, where he has energized the town of Northfield around a collective goal of making this area one of the greenest in Minnesota. He brings that experience to Imminent where he plans to promote Northfield and Imminent through distribution of Imminent beers, community engagement and recreational events that define Imminent as a unique brand and showcase Northfield for the exceptional place that it is

At Imminent Brewing, we firmly believe in community and social responsibility; and although we would love to donate to every charitable event, we receive more requests than we can support.

• Laura Baker Services Association
• St. Dominic School
• Sports Scholarship Fundraising

We're proud to introduce Meg, our very first "Brewery Dog of the Month." Meg is a twelve-year-old tri-color Border Collie with super curly hair, which we're all told is quite rare! Her favourite pastimes include taking long walks in St. Olaf Prairie with her humans, shaking the stuffing out of her Moose or Dragon, and trying to knock squirrels out of trees in her backyard with her big bark. Perhaps her very favourite activity, though, is chasing a Frisbee or a stick across a big green field. Not so long ago, she used to be the quickest Frisbee-catcher around, but these days, she's pretty content to sit on the patio at Imminent with her family on a warm day, enjoying the cool breeze, a spent grain snack, and the occasional pat on the head and a "Good girl" from a passerby.
