Tasting Menu For The Week - November 12th, 2018

fortunella | American Wild Ale, 6.3% ABV

This spontaneously fermented, foeder-aged sour was transferred to used Cognac barrels where it aged on 40 pounds of fresh kumquats. The citrus and Cognac notes combine with the barnyard funk of the base sour to create a rich depth of flavor in this dry, lightly tart sour.


Brewed in collaboration with Galgos del Sol, a Spanish hound rescue sanctuary, this fruited sour was blended to celebrate Spanish sighthounds, and proceeds from each bottle will go to help save abandoned Spanish sighthounds through rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming, and education. Brewed with almost 1,000 total pounds of passionfruit, pink guava, and mango, this blended barrel and foeder aged wild ale is vibrantly fruity and funky with a tart finish.

Vivid Gold | Triple IPA, 10.8% ABV

Clocking in at nearly 11% ABV, Vivid Gold is a big, bold triple IPA that's brewed with five pounds of hops per barrel. The Citra, Cascade, Azacca & Motueka hops provide notes of sweet grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and papaya to accompany the bright citrus nose and delightfully boozy finish.

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.

Banana Mash | NEIPA, 5.3% ABV

This fruit forward IPA was mashed with equal parts banana and grain — 500 pounds of each! Loads of Citra and Motueka hops in the whirlpool and dry hop stages added deep citrus and tropical flavors to this lush, in-your-face fruity banana IPA.

simple | saison, 6.2% ABV

The beer for everyday, Simple was brewed with Maltwerks pilsner malt, European hops, and Wallonian saison yeast before being bottle conditioned for a higher level of carbonation and a denser head. This no-frills, full-flavored saison is dry and moderately bitter with a hint of stone fruit.

ideal | pilsner, 4.9% ABV

Brewed with Maltwerks 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.


Radical Fashion was fermented with a mix of ale yeast, our native wild yeast, and bacteria and then dry-hopped with plenty of Centennial, Citra, and Simcoe. The resulting beer is complex and refreshing with tropical and citrus notes.

Fly Design | Belgian Quad, 11.4% ABV

Aged in Tattersall apple brandy barrels on our native microflora, this boozy Belgian quad has a nose of plums, raisins, and funky apple whiskey. Fly Design is the perfect beer for cold Minnesota nights and has up front notes of caramel and dark fruits to complement the full, malty mouthfeel and hint of apple brandy and light spices at the finish.

Sauce | imperial stout, 9.2% ABV

This Imperial Stout was brewed with the intention of reproducing the depth of flavors in a mole sauce. There are many varieties of mole sauce, some containing up to 30 ingredients, and this one is based on a mole dulce. It checks in at 20 ingredients with seven grains, two hops, one yeast and 10 other spices.  This has robust malt flavors of cocoa, coffee and dark fruit in a full, sultry body.  The addition of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, almond, ginger, raisins, vanilla, cocoa nibs and ancho chiles meld into that body and come across on the palate with a rounded spice character.  With how much is going on, this stout leaves you with a singular and distinct impression that we hope reminds you of mole.

windom paradise | NEIPA, 6.3% ABV

Citra, Mosaic, and Eukanot hops were added to the whirlpool and then again at dry-hopping to provide this hazy IPA with a dank nose and tropical fruit notes ranging from guava to soft peach. This full-bodied NEIPA combines the lightly sweet with a touch of hop bitterness to pair with the malt bill of 2-row, malted white wheat, and flaked white wheat.

winter’s edge | cascadian dark ale, 8.4% ABV

Just in time for the changing temperature, Winter's Edge returns with a slightly tweaked recipe. This Cascadian dark ale has a rich, malty body with notes of dark chocolate and espresso to complement piney and orange peel notes of the Cascade, Centennial, Citra, and Simcoe hops. At nearly 9% ABV, Winter's Edge is a delightfully warming brew to help you embrace fall and prepare for what's next.

Buy In Bulk | Porter, 6.9% ABV

Buy in Bulk is a traditional porter that was brewed with English malts, hops, and yeast to make it as authentically English as possible. The malt provides the beer with a roasty, bitter chocolate backbone with a hint of mild caramel to complement dry, oaky notes from the yeast.

Legacy | Cider Ale, 6.0% ABV

The Jacobson's of Pine Tree Orchards have been making fresh apple cider for three generations, and for this collaboration, they created a custom cider from a blend of modern and heirloom varieties of high quality Minnesota apples. The cider was then naturally fermented in neutral oak barrels with our 100 percent Minnesotan wild yeast to create an all-Minnesota wild apple ale that celebrates some of the best ingredients our state has to offer.

Platinum sparkle | cider ale, 6.4% ABV

This blend of four barrel-aged ciders was aged on passion fruit to add a punch of tartness and tropical flavor to complement the complex, mixed-fermentation base cider.
