Mother & Child Reunion | Hoppy Saison, 6.3% ABV
This heavily-hopped saison highlights the complementary flavors of two-related hop varieties, Saaz and Motueka hops. Motueka adds notes of lime zest and bright fruits and was originally bred using Saaz hops, which give the beer spicey, earthy notes. The end result is a saison that's dry and refreshing with more bitterness than your average saison.
Beets By Dwight | Root Saison, 6.4% ABV
Carrots. Beets. Watermelon radishes.
We added these root vegetables to bring out the earthy character of our base saison yeast by mashing in 125 pounds of each. The resulting beer is fit for a Schrute, a dry, earthy, and spicy saison with a touch of berry and hints of root vegetables on the finish.
kamadevi + rati | fruited ipa, 6.4% ABV
Love is in the air with these two Hindu gods of love. What began as a traditional IPA with malted and flaked oats and Mosaic, Amarillo, and Centennial hops morphed into anything but traditional with the addition of raspberry and cacao nibs. The raspberry complements the hops' fruit character to create a lush, fruity palate along with the slightly bitter chocolate note on the finish.
Ideal | Pilsner, 4.9% ABV
Brewed with pilsner malt and traditional German Noble hops (Spalt, Tettnanger, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh), our ideal pils was fermented with a Dutch lager yeast at the lower end of the temperature range, which allowed the beer to condition for an extended period of time. High-krausen wort from an upcoming batch of Ideal was added towards the end of conditioning to help the beer naturally ferment before being kegged directly from the tanks. The end result is a clean, crisp, and crushable beer that's everything a pils should be.
oolong kvass | kvass, 2.6% ABV
Our second kvass was brewed with 60 loaves of 46th Street Levain from Patisserie 46, a South Minneapolis Bakery. We also added some pilsner malt to round out the body, honey, and oolong tea. The kvass was fermented using a sourdough starter from Patisserie 46, resulting in slow, steady fermentation that yielded a lightly tart, crisp kvass. The beer was then bottle- and keg-conditioned with champagne yeast to enhance the beer's light, lively character.
Forêt De Pêche | american wild ale, 6.8% ABV
An American Mixed-culture sour ale that has been fermented and aged in French oak barrels. The signature farmhouse, tart and fruity flavors were created during the barrel aging process by a combination of lactobacillus, brettanomyces, pediococcus as well as native microflora. After fermentation, this wild ale is conditioned on peach and passionfruit to provide tropical and refreshing fruit flavors. To bring the flavors together, vanilla beans were added to round it out thus bringing all the flavors together into a truly quaffable American Wild Ale.
Château Estate Reserve | hoppy table beer, 2.8% ABV
Created in collaboration with Fair State Brewing Co-Op, Chateau Estate Reserve 2018 was brewed with more than 100 pounds of fresh, Minnesota-grown Centennial hops from Mighty Axe Hops and was open-fermented with a mixed-culture of yeast and bacteria. The resulting table beer is a lightly tart and dry crusher with notes of pineapple and grapefruit.
