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.
7.1% ABV / 22 IBUs
A Strong English Brown Ale, sometimes referred to as a ‘Winter Warmer’. There is a noticeable floral aroma and earthiness from the East Kent Goldings hops while still having that roasty, dark malty finish.
8.6% ABV / 24 IBUs
This beer has historically been released in February for the week of Valentine’s Day and is our most anticipated release of the year. With everything going on we felt like we should release it before Christmas. At least we can end the year with something good. This beer is a Silver medal winner at the World Beer Cup once upon a time. It is officially a Double Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout. We use 2 kinds of chocolate and real raspberries to achieve the flavor. Sweetness with just a bit of bitter from the chocolate and a slight tartness from the raspberries.
10.9% ABV / 26 IBUs
This beast is an Imperial Helles Bock which drinks a lot easier than it’s 10.9% fighting weight. Uses floor malted pilsner to give it a familiar German flavor profile which is rich with a touch of graininess and alcohol but still clean, subtle and smooth. There has been a rumor running around the brewery that this may also go outside with our yearly Eisbock kegs to ‘Eis’ify.
Wild Rice Amber Bock
6.8% ABV / 20 IBUs
German Strong Beer with a healthy 50 lbs of MN wild rice added directly to the mash. Wild rice gives and earthy, vanilla, nutty flavor with a beautiful copper/amber color.
Czech Dark Lager
5.9% ABV / 26 IBUs
One of the staff and regular favorites. A Czech style dark lager essentially takes a Pilsner beer then replaces the malt with something darker, in this case Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsner malt. This results in a darker and malty version of our Pravy Pils. We do all the bells and whistles with this just as we do with the Pravy, which includes changing the water profile to match that of Pilsen Czech Republic.
Dictator – SOLD OUT
9.2% ABV / 32 IBUs
We take Ashton Churchill and Maduro cigars and soak them in dark rum and use them to smoke 20% of the malt in this Imperial Brown Ale. There is a malty sweetness up front with a finish of dry tobacco and light leather. Think of how an unlit cigar smells and these are the qualities that transfer to the beer but with less astringent properties of wood smoke.
Castro’s Reserve – SOLD OUT
9.2% ABV / 32 IBUs
Ball & Chain
7.1% ABV / 22 IBUs
This is a British Strong Ale originally brewed for the owner’s wedding. Made to be a bit higher ABV with low hops to appeal to everyone. He focused on using a single malt, Golden Promise (get it?) that has a rich and sweet characteristic. A single hop, CTZ, is used in a very small amount to keep IBUs low.
