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.
SOLD OUT – Cold Front IPA
6.8% ABV / 70 IBUs
An American IPA brewed with plenty of white wheat, giving the beer a soft body. We like to showcase hops in our beers and for this one we chose Falconer’s Flight, which give a dank and juicy profile. You’ll find citrus flavors, especially grapefruit and a bit of pine aroma.
SOLD OUT – 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!
6.8% ABV / 20 IBUs
When something isn’t broke, don’t fix it. This classic style needs no modifications, it’s perfect the way it’s intended. Malt forward, low hop, and medium esters from the Belgian yeast. Flavors of dried fruit and cherries with just a hint of tobacco.
10.1% ABV / 22 IBUs
Sometimes when thinking of beer names, we just go with a crazy memory. This is such a beer. Name during an employee party weekend on a lake where ‘somebody’ decided to live out the train bridge hanging scene from Lost Boys. Disclaimer: they were only about 12 feet above the water (it was a very low bridge). This style is called a Dark Belgian Strong Ale, that focuses on the malt profile. A deep, rich, red color gives a flavor profile you’d expect such as toffee, stone fruits, caramelized sugar, espresso with just a slight touch of alcohol finish. This is one of those scary beers that doesn’t drink like a 10.1% ABV. Look for the double-barrel aged version, Lost Boys, being released this September. No vampires where hurt in the making of these beers.
5.8% ABV / 16 IBUs
A bone dry saison which uses a very light malt bill. This allows the esters from the yeast to be the star of the show and really shine. Plenty of spice notes including clove, black pepper along with an earthy fruitiness.
