NE Nectar - Honey Kolsch
This is a pale, lighter bodied ale that is smooth, clean and refreshing. Additions of honey give this a sweeter character as it is fermented clean. It is brewed with 3 different malts and copious amounts of honey added at the end of the batch. Enjoy this year round.
Polonaise APA - American Pale Ale
This is an easy drinking American pale ale. It has a dark golden color and pleasant citrus aroma. The flavor starts off with a caramel sweetness and finishes with tones of grapefruit which lingers after each sip. It is a favorite among the staff.
It is brewed with 3 different malts and 3 different hops.
Gateway Park is a pre-prohibition lager brewed with ingredients commonly used in this same style beer over a hundred years ago; six-row barley, flaked corn and Cluster hops. This beer pays homage to the Gateway District or as it was known back then, Bridge Square, in Minneapolis. One of the key buildings in the Gateway District was the Metropolitan Building, which was sadly demolished in the 1960′s due to urban renewal.
SIX is a golden-colored, American pale ale light-bodied, biscuit-flavored with a light hop aroma. It is named after the local bus number that runs past the original 612Brew test brewery, where the beer was first brewed.
Excitement is in the mystery. Zero Hour is a black ale, aggressively hopped with late Simcoe additions and blacked out with Midnight Wheat.
Bauhaus Brew Labs
Wonderstuff Neü Bohemian Pilsner
Some ideas are simply ahead of their time. The stuff in this can, however, is right on schedule. We channeled a madman's spirit and wild ingenuity to create this truly unique version of a classic. Wonderstuff delivers the clean, balanced flavors you'd expect from a Bohemian Style Pilsner, but with a powerful, citrus hop twist. Truly the stuff of wonder, this beer will change the way you think about light lagers.
Stargrazer German Style Schwarzbier
If you've never time-traveled, then take it from us – Stargrazer will be your personal slingshot through time and space. Our Schwarzbier is a jet-black mystery, delivering a surprisingly light body and bright hop profile without the heavy roast qualities you find in most dark beers. It's as black as the night sky, yet amazingly refreshing and smooth. How do we do it? It's like, science. Don't overthink it, just enjoy.
Wagon Party West Cöast Style Lager
All kinds of people made the wagon trip into the Wild West: bankers from Boston, carpenters from Ohio, even brewers from Bavaria. After fording rivers and not dying of cholera or exhaustion, these brave folks would have enjoyed a tasty beer at the end of the trail. Fermented with lager yeast at higher ale temperatures, this beer is an homage to an American beer style that emerged during the California Gold Rush. Its firm, grainy maltiness and hoppy aromas of tangerine, apricot and citrus will make you want to party like it's 1849.
Dry and spicy, with citrus and tropical fruit notes on the nose. The rye presence widens the body of the beer, and clips the malt bill with it's characteristic peppery-spice. Pine and citrus hop flavors meld into the malt bill and provide a pleasant, lingering bitterness.
Orange, honey and lemon.
Chocolate Milk Stout
The Chocolate Milk Stout is pitch black with an off-tan head and a large, roast and chocolate aroma. Thick and creamy, the flavors in the CMS range from dark and milk chocolate, coffee, and toasted bread. Boosted with lactose additions, this beer is distinct for its rich and creamy chocolate flavors.
Originally brewed long before the advent of modern brewing, this beer is sour, a little funky and very refreshing. We took ours and let it sour in the kettle before boiling it, for only a brief moment, in order to get a tartness that is very noticeable but not overpowering. Try a pint with one of our flavor syrups, as traditionally served in Germany.

MinneGose - Gose Style Ale
