Year Round

Big Jim

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.

Light Rail
Pale Ale

5.5% ABV / 45 IBUs

This is a lightbodied, 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.

Honey Wheat

5.5% ABV / 25 IBUs

A crisp, lightly hopped American wheat ale brewed with honey from Sorensen’s Honey Farm. Honey added late in the brewing process makes this beer honey-forward. From the aroma to the finish, you will know there is honey in this beer. Enjoy during patio season or as a nice break from the big beers of winter.

Smokehouse Porter

6.2% ABV / 30 IBUs

Heavier on the caramel malt and lighter on the roast malt. 5% of the base malt is smoked in-house for a smoky complexity. This beer will pair well with most of our menu items. And weighing in at 6.2% ABV it can also be your winter warmer.

Seasonals

Watermelon Sour

6.0% ABV / 17 IBUs

A kettle sour using 100 lbs of fresh watermelon. An approachable sour with a lower tartness than aged sours.

Weizenbock

8.0% ABV / 24 IBUs

An underrepresented style. Brew a bock style beer with all that caramel, malty goodness and use Hefeweizen yeast to give that banana and clove layer. This results in a delicious beer that can sneak up on you with it’s 8% ABV. You’ve been warned!

Hefeweizen

5.6% ABV / 12 IBUs

Traditional German Hefeweizen showcasing the yeast esters, which give a banana and spicy clove tones.

The Embargo

5.9% ABV / 31 IBUs

This is uniquely Northbound. Using our commercial smokers, we soak cigar tobacco in Congnac to smoke about 20% of the malt used to make this Brown Ale. The result is a brown ale that has a sweet malty flavor on the front and finishes with dry cigar and leather flavors. This beer does not have the campfire astringent properties of a wood smoked beer.

Pride Red

5.8% ABV / 23 IBUs

Made every year for the week of Pride Festival. This is an easy drinking American Amber with low hops and flavors of biscuit, dark fruit and subtle caramel.

Rebound Blonde

5.6% ABV / 21 IBUs

A light bodied American Blonde Ale with mild malt sweetness that finishes with a touch of lemon.
