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.

Cream Ale

5.6% ABV / 21 IBUs

A crisp, lightly hopped Cream Ale. Flavor is a great balance between hops and malt and finishes semi-sweet.

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

Hefeweizen

5.7% ABV / 12 IBUs

This is a traditional German Hefeweizen.  The Germans have a way of just calling a beer what it is.  Hefe is German for yeast.  Weizen is German for wheat beer.  So…  Yeast-Wheat-Beer in English.

The flavor profile of Hefeweizens is almost entirely produced by the yeast.  You taste banana and a clove spiciness.  This Hefeweizen is 55% floor malted wheat from Germany and 45% Vienna malt.  This rounds out the wheat flavor and richness of the beer.

El Ray Dorado

5.2% ABV / 35 IBUs

El Rey Dorado translates to “the golden king”. This is in reference to the hops that are used in the brew. This is a hop forward American Pale Ale with notes of tropical fruit and a little bit of watermelon. Enjoy

Pride Red

6.1% ABV / 23IBUs

This American Amber is released once a year to celebrate Pride Week here in the Twin Cities. 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.

Jabrowni

6.1% ABV / 26 IBUs

An American Brown Ale, Jabrowni is named after the word Jabroni. It is Italian slang for loser and you may remember The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) said it a lot during his wrestling career. Aroma has notes of sweet caramel, roast, and a touch of dark fruit. Body is medium. Flavor consists of roast, toast, raisin, caramel, and some earthy spice

Sandbar Saison

6.5% ABV / 20 IBUs

Sandbar is a bone dry saison. This beer has a very light malt bill that lets the yeast be the star of the show. It is a crisp light body beer with notes of spicy clove, black pepper, earthy tones, and fruitiness..

 

Strawberry-Rhubarb Sour

5.3% ABV / 17 IBUs

This is specifically a kettle sour and not an aged sour. Kettle sours just give you the or tart flavor without the funk of aged sours. This sour used 60 pounds of Rhubarb and 40 pounds of Strawberries for a 7bbl batch. The malt bill is very light allowing the beer to showcase the flavors of the Rhubarb and strawberry to shine. Rhubarb is the dominate flavor with the strawberry sweetness supporting it. The base beer came out very tart this year and the Rhubarb adds to it even further. It is very refreshing but also doesn’t quite quench your thirst leaving you smacking your gums wanting more.
