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.
SOLD OUT! – Snow Series #1: Snowpocalypse
8.6% ABV / 18 IBUs
The first in our annual Snow Series of big beers. This entry is a Scotch Ale with our Northbound twist. Traditionally, Scotch Ales don’t have the hops but we like them, so we dry hopped it. We added 1 pound of East Kent Goldings hop per barrel post fermentation to give a wonderful earthiness and aroma. Despite the addition of hops, this beer is all about the malt and we used five different malts for a layered complexity.
SOLD OUT! – Snow Series #2: Snowmageddon
9.7% ABV / 35 IBUs
An Imperial Honey Brown Ale with plenty of malt for a nutty, chocolate and earthy quality. We added 60 pounds of local MN honey from Sorensen Honey Farm after the boild to keep the honey flavor and aroma intact.
4.8% ABV / 12 IBUs
This is our American Lager that is design to be an anytime beer. Out back on the patio or around a campfire. We use our RO water system to make super soft water to add to the drinkability. We also add a little flaked corn adjunct to sweeten the beer a little and be true to the style.
8.2% ABV / 18 IBUs
A traditional German Doppelbock using Munich malt and Bohemian Dark floor malted malt. Caramel and toffee flavor with slight fruity esters present. This beautiful dark copper hued beer has no hop profile to allow the wonderful malts to shine.
Wild Rice Amber
5.5% ABV / 22 IBUs
A full 75 lbs. of wild rice are used per batch, thrown straight into the mash. Not only do you get that wild rice aroma, but you get vanilla, nuttiness and a bit of dark fruit flavors. A deep color and medium body make this one beautiful beer.
7.7% ABV / 90 IBUs
An aggressively hopped American IPA using only Centennial hops. At over 7 lbs of hops per barrel, this is the beer for you hop-heads. Taste and flavor of pine, citrus, orange, and a floral aroma. A medium bodied beer with a resin quality from the enormous amount of hops used.
7.0% ABV / 26 IBUs
Maibocks are all about showcasing premium light and bready malts and just enough hop flavor and aroma to balance the malt sweetness. This Maibock was brewed in January to give it the traditional 3 months lagering time. The result is a clean, balanced, malty spring lager.
