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

Bridge Hanger

8.8% ABV / 26 IBUs

A Dark Belgian Strong Ale with caramel and dark fruit flavors.

Ground Rule Double IPA

8.9% ABV / 99 IBUs

The third beer of our Baseball Series is Double IPA. The current record holder for the most hops used in a Northbound beer using Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic, and Centennial hops.

Wild Rice Amber

6.0% ABV / 40 IBUs

To brew this American Amber, we add 50 lbs of cooked wild rice to the mash which really comes across in the aroma. An earthy flavor with small hints of vanilla, dark fruit and light caramel.

Anniversary Ale

9.4% ABV / 26 IBUs

Northbound’s anniversary is September 20th. To celebrate we brew this Farmhouse style Belgian Strong Ale. The yeast esters give clove and a slight banana flavor. Belgian Candi Sugar is added along with honey to give more complexity and depth of flavor.

Main Squeeze Sour

6.5% ABV / 17 IBUs

A kettle sour using fresh lime zest, mango and toasted coconut. We also used Jasmine Rice for the fermentable sugars to help keep the beer light bodied.

Ball & Chain

7.0% ABV / 30 IBUs

Brewed once a year for the owner’s wedding anniversary, this Strong English Ale is light and easy to drink but with a higher than expected ABV. The only malt used in this beer is Golden Promise, which showcases it’s sweet malt characteristic.
