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 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.

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

Block Heater Barley Wine

11.1% ABV / 85 IBUs

To make a good Barley Wine, you need to keep that malt sweetness with flavors of light coffee, citrus and pine. This full bodied beer drinks much easier than the 11.1% would lead you to believe. So is you need something to keep you warm this Minnesota winter, grab a Block Heater to take off that winter’s chill.

Snowpocalypse

9.0% ABV / 21 IBUs

Every year we feature our Snow Series, because we do live in the North after all and this is the Snow Series No. 1 Snowpocalype. We make a traditional Scotch Ale, a style that uses low hops. We couldn’t leave it like that and decided to ignore tradition and dry hop it. The malt sweetness is from a malt called Golden Promise, which is used as a malt in Scotch Whiskey.

Snowmageddon

11.2% ABV / 35 IBUs

Snow Series No. 2 Snowmageddon brings you an Imperial Honey Brown Ale. Using 120 lbs. of honey brings the alcohol of this beer way up to give you that needed warmth to fight the Northern weather.

DoppelBock

9.7% ABV / 21 IBUs

Another of our once-a-year offerings. Being winter is ‘Big Beer’ season, we make a traditional Doppelbock and really showcase the caramel and toffee flavors. Once it gets below freezing, a small amount of this beer will become our Eisbock which is by far the most allocated beer we make generally selling out in a matter of hours.

Jimbo Double Big Jim

11.7% ABV / 100 IBUs

Several years back we were talking about our flagship IPA, the Big Jim. One of us mentioned how it would be great to do a Double IPA version of the Big Jim. Paying attention to the flavor profile and most importantly, the balance of malt and hops. We didn’t want a lopsided IBU bomb that grates the enamel from your teeth. Something that stays true to what make the Big Jim so popular. With very little regard for cost, we created the Jimbo: Double Big Jim. This hits all the points we set out for in the balance between the malt, hops and that high ABV alcohol that DIPAs need. Served in a responsible 8oz pour to allow you to grab a second.

 

Cream Ale

5.6% ABV / 21 IBUs

With all the huge ABV beers that winter brings, it’s sometimes prudent to bring it back down to reality from time to time. The Cream Ale does just that. Light hops and a semi-sweet finish goes with everything.
