Light Rail Pale Ale
This is a lightbodied, 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.
Heavier on the caramel malt and lighter on the roast malt. 5% of the base malt is smoke 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.
Honey Wheat Ale
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.
Big Jim IPA
7.2% ABV / 90 IBUs
Cascade, Mt. Hood, and an enormous amount of Columbus hops late in the brew and in the 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 roughly 90IBUs, this is a tribute to the style we call the Minnesota IPA.
Wild Rice Amber
6.4% ABV / 32 IBUs
We used 35 pounds of local wild rice per batch. The wild rice give the beer a vanilla, kind of nutty, earthy beer. We balanced this amber ale with one bittering hopp addition.
Anniversary Ale 2014
9.5% ABV / 20 IBUs (10oz only)
We used a Belgian Ale yeast instead of the Belgian/Saison yeast we used last year. You’ll still get some slight spiciness from this beer in addition to banana and cloves. We also added Belgian candi sugar and a late addition of honey that contributes to the beer’s dryness and flavor complexity.
Fresh Hop IPA
6.9% ABV / 80 IBUs
Our Fresh Hop IPA was brewed with 150 lbs of fresh hops grown on a local hop farm. Gerhard Hops in Pine City, MN is the state’s largest hop producer, and has only been in business for three years. We use equal parts Cascade, Columbus and Centennial hops to make our 100% Fresh Hop IPA.
5.4% ABV / 11 IBUs
You'll get a lot of banana and clove from this traditional German Hefeweizen.
