Summer…Autumn…or something in between?

CaptureWith the arrival of fall, our thoughts are turning to harvest time and the cold winter days that are just around the corner (insert obligatory Game of Thrones reference here). Here at the brewery, we’ve pulled out the recipe book and are cooking up pilot batches of some stouts, winter ales and other holiday goodness.

We are also out and about sampling our brews at various places. One of the showcase beer events of this time of year is the Autumn Brew Review (ABR) which is hosted by the MN Craft Brewers Guild. If you are out at ABR tomorrow, make sure to stop in and tell Dane and the team “mitte me dolor commodo”. ;-)

CaptureIn the taproom, we aren’t quite ready to let go of summer, so this Friday we are again hosting Crazy Puppy Gourmet Workshop. They will be bringing back their gluten-free fair food goodness, including cheese curds, corn dogs, mini-donuts, onion rings, etc.

Finally, this will be the last chance to get your Lime Shandy for 2014. It’s not that we don’t love you Lime Shandy, but it’s time for us to have some space from one another.

This weekend’s taproom selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Fused Lime Shandy
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
  • Fused Raspberry
  • Roasted Strong Ale with Coffee

Cheers!

Border Battle…bring it on!

Hey everybody, this is your Friday update. Normally this is the sport where I would expound on the food truck deliciousness that we are hosting tonight, but unfortunately there where some technical snafus which caused scheduling mishaps. Long story short, no food truck tonight.

That being said, it’s still the weekend and we are deep in the middle of beer festival season and we’ve got another one on the docket. Dane and Andy will be pouring on Saturday in Somerset, WI at the Border Battle Beer Fest. Not only will there be beer, but also a car show, bike rally and live music, including a performance by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

 

This weekend’s taproom selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Fused Lime Shandy
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
  • Fused Raspberry

Cheers!

Rails & Ales and the Great Lakes Brew Fest

We’ve got events happening in multiple states today, so let’s just dive right in.

logoglbfWe’ll start with the fact that our dear Head Brewer left home in the wee hours of the morning to be at the Great Lakes Brew Fest in Racine, WI today. Dane will be there pouring Pyro, talking beer and answering all your “Burning” questions. (Yeah, I know the pun was bad, but really, would you have been able to resist the temptation either?)

R&A FB Banner4_no dateNext, we are opening the taproom early today in support of Rails & Ales. Taproom hours are from Noon to 8pm today and there will be a variety of happenings to coincide with the event including the 128 Cafe Food Truck.

Lastly, we are tapping a keg of our Roasted Coffee Ale today. This will be the last keg off the pilot system as the brew crew dove off the deep end this week and brewed up our first batch of coffee on the big system. Coffee should be a staple on the taplines in the upcoming weeks.

Today’s tap selection:

  • Pyro American Pale Ale
  • Fused Lime Shandy
  • Fused Orange Blossom Honey
  • Fused Raspberry
  • Roasted Coffee Ale

Let’s enjoy the weekend everyone! Cheers!

PS: A little teaser for what might be happening next week. I wonder why they cleared that big empty space in the brewery?
