Tasting Menu For The Week - october 15th, 2018


La Reine | American Wild Ale, 6.4% ABV

Brewed with blackberry and boysenberry puree and more than 500 pounds of rhubarb, this barrel-aged wild ale pours a royal purple and has dark berry notes up front and a smooth, dry funk at the finish. Tart and jammy, La Reine is a refreshing treat that's fit for a queen.


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


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 | SOUR IPA, 9.2% ABV

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.


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.


pizza science | NEIPA, 6.7% ABV

This hazy NE IPA features Citra and Amarillo hops, which provide a punch of citrus flavor to accompany a svelte and smooth mouthfeel. Pizza* Science lets the hops shine above all else and features notes of sweet mandarin orange and ruby red grapefruit with a hint of mango and passion.


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.


saint edward | Dark farmhouse, 7.0% ABV

A roasted coffee and chocolate forward dark farmhouse ale that used rye chocolate malts. The addition of Madagascar vanilla beans smooths out this ale with a sweet, creamy finish.


Pomme pourie | graf, 6.0% ABV

This spontaneously fermented barrel-aged cider is tart and dry with notes of oak and white wine.
