Crooked Pint Ale House plans to open a new location in Savage at 14120 Highway 13 South.

Crooked Pint Ale House plans to open a new location in Savage.

Savage resident Paul Winge owns the Crooked Pint Ale House in Minneapolis and told the Savage Pacer he’s looking forward to opening a new location in his own community.

On Monday, the Savage City Council approved Winge’s liquor license application, clearing the path for Crooked Pint to open in the former Bonfire Restaurant location along Highway 13 South.

Bonfire closed all its locations permanently in March 2020, citing the pandemic and other financial strains.

Crooked Pint Ale House currently operates more than a dozen locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Arizona.

Winge said the Savage location is expected to open sometime early next year.
