7.2% ABV / 92 IBUs
Cascade, Mt. Hood and an enormous amount of Columbus hops added late in the brew fermenter, give this beer the hop punch IPA lovers crave. There is also a significant malt backbone and complexity to this beer to stand up to the hop intensity. At 7.2% ABV and 92 IBUs, this is a tribute to the style we call the Minnesota IPA.
5.5% ABV / 45 IBUs
This is a light-bodied, hop-forward pale ale. Copious amounts of Cascade hops late in the brewing process, and another huge dry hop addition in the fermenter will remind craft beer lovers what they love about this style. The intense hop aroma will make you think IPA, but the bitterness is dialed back to showcase the characteristics of this classic hop variety. And at 5.5% ABV, you can enjoy a few of them.
5.3% ABV / 24 IBUs
The crown jewel of our lager program. Pravy is Czech for “true” or “genuine” and appropriately named as we set out to brew the most authentic version of this style that we could. The biggest challenge was replicating the water profile unique to Pilzn, Czech Republic. This mean stripping the mineral content of our Minneapolis water and correcting the water chemistry until the Pilzn profile was achieved Then it is lagered for a full 6 week, which makes the beer clear and “clean” tasting. Czech Saaz hops and floor malted malt are used and give a spicy, floral aroma with a bready malt richness.
Line Drive IPA
7.0% ABV / 75 IBUs
Our Line Drive IPA changes every year. This year we went with an American Wheat IPA using Amarillo and Azacca hops. The Amarillo hops gives the fruit flavors of grapefruit, orange, lemon, melon, apricot and peach…basically Fruity Pebbles. The pale malt gives enough body to stand up to the intense citrus notes.
Watermelon Kettle Sour
6.0% ABV / 17 IBUs
We describe a kettle sour as an introductory sour. You will get the tartness without all of the funk and barnyard of barrel aged sours. We used 70 lbs. of fresh watermelon for this batch being sure to include plenty of the white rind flavor to add a little bitterness. This is the perfect beer for our hot Minnesota summers!
5.9% ABV / 23 IBUs
Pride weekend is here and so is our Pride Red. Every year for Pride weekend we release our Pride Red, an American Amber/Red Ale to help celebrate. The beer is medium body with the aroma of light biscuit and caramel. Flavor is a mix of toast, semi-sweet dark fruits, a touch of herbal, and some earthy tones. Low hops to let the fancy malts shine.
