Sounds like a nice location.

Logging...hmmm.  Sawmills?

Shipping...hmmm Depot, Docks, Quay?

What about Sawyers Quay?

Or you could emphasize the region like others said.  Nordic Pub

Either way -I'm one of an army of jealous guys...

How about "The Broken Tooth Brewing Company"?  Broken Tooth (Katawabeda) was perhaps the most celebrated Chief of the Chippewa (Ojibwe) people.  See here: http://www.sandylakeojibwe.org/katawabe.htm

You might also consider something river ("The Barge Inn"), or railroad ("The End Of The Line") related, as these would provide a lot of other terms and phrases that could be used to give themed names to your beers.

Below is a link to the MN Historical Society.  They have pictures of Reads Landing from the 1870s on.  My building is the one to the far left.

Beautiful building.  Will you be able to have the brewery area near one of those wonderful large windows in the front?
I don't have any ideas for a name (don't know the area) but I wish you much luck on your venture!  Very exciting.

"Tool Shed". Think of the decor you could go with. Also, "Honey! I'm going to the Tool Shed." That was going to be my band in High School...if I had any talent.

Tool shed sounds like a male strip joint. Like where you'd go to see Chippendale dancers or something like that.
Just call the place "Depot" if you want to give every guy out there an excuse to stop in.

Crap...NOW that will I call my band if I ever learn to play guitar? I know I'll never be a male stripper, at least not one anyone wants to see.

So do you like any of these names? There are some good ones.

Personally I really like The Busted Nut and I cant believe it is already taken. Great name for an American brew pub and even better for the kind of place that has free peanuts with shells all over the floor. Although peanuts are not nuts at all, they are a legume. Just doenst work the same if you say, The Busted Legume.

Anyways. The Pufferbelly sounds nice too. :D Especially if the food is good. If it is called the PufferBelly you can set up an O gage train set running around the ceiling or something. Plus a steaming locomotive will make for a great logo and sign.

Back in colonial days early 1700's in this country, Bars/Taverns were called "Ordinary's".....I put my
belief in the KISS (keep it simple) philosophy...

How about ...insert...  "Yer Name's"    Ordinary

Edit: found this...
14) noun, a) a meal provided regularly at a fixed price b) the inn providing such meals

The general atmosphere of your pub should have a lot to do with it...if there is any sort of thematic strain to it (what sort of food is served, general decorating or atmosphere, what kind of beer in general) you should go with something along those lines.  If it is going to be a more conventional American brewpub (ie., some sort of spinach dip with chips on the appetizer menu, jalapeno poppers, burgers and pizza, etc., and an american pale ale, a wheat beer, and a dry stout at least always on tap), then you have to get more imaginative and the regional history associated with the building would be my first guess.  Explore the history of the prior tenants, perhaps.
