We take prodigious amounts of hops and add them any chance we get to this Pacific Northwest-style IPA. If you ever call Size 7 balanced we’ll kick you where it hurts (in the hop sack). Big aroma and flavor of zesty orange peel, a dry and clean bitterness finishes in the most satisfying way possible.

brewer's evolution series

Our Head Brewer, Michael Wagner is taking you through a journey of classic beer styles and new interpretations, with a changing line-up.  Mostly tap room exclusive and each style will only be around for a limited time.  

Brewer's Evolution Series
AMERICAN PALE ALE (Fall 2016)

In the beginning of the “craft beer” revolution, there was the Pale Ale. Some of the pioneering American brewers took this traditional English Ale, and Americanized it. Bringing balance of malt character with an assertive American hop presence. For the first beer in our new Brewer’s Evolution Series, we explore this style, using heritage English malts, with distinct American hops. Enjoy the journey, we sure are!

Flavor/Aroma: Aromas of passion fruit and ripe berry are balanced with a toasted biscuit malt character that lends backbone and body. Dry on the finish, with a distinct hop bitterness.

  • Color: Copper

  • Alcohol content by volume: 5.5%

  • International Bitterness Units: 35

 

Brewer's Evolution Series
BROWN PORTER
 (Winter 2017, Returned currently on fall 2018)

Early on, I recall being intrigued by “dark” beer. Most people said it was strong, or bitter. In reality, it may have just been an indicator of “having flavor,” or at least more flavor than a typical adjunct lager. To provide an example and intro to this vague category of beer, ones that are dark in color, our first offering is an interpretation of an English-style Brown Porter. Chocolate abounds in aroma, with some earthy undertones, but doesn’t overtake the base of biscuit and toasty malt. There is some presence of bitterness, almost like baker’s chocolate on the finish, but there is no astringency or roasted malt character. Dark, but not black, it’s a hue of opaque brown with slight ruby highlights. Grab a pint, and toast to the dark side. Cheers!

Brewer's Evolution Series
ALMOST SPECIAL BITTER (Spring 2017)
    

Inspired by the seasonal shift; Fat Tuesday, Fasching, Spring, Solstice, whatever…it’s the time of year when we start to see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel of winter. The sun is higher in the sky, its coming warmth apparent, even on cold days. This is that transitional beer; malty, slight nutty character balanced with a spicy bright English hop aroma and defined earthy bitterness. This beer occupies the space where malt and hops collide. It’s not an English Pale Ale, it’s not an E.S.B…but it’s almost there! Enjoy!

Brewer's Evolution Series
SAISON (Fall 2017)

Originating not as a style, due to vast variation in offerings from farmhouse to farmhouse, these beers developed as refreshing late summer, early fall harvest ales. As was tradition farmers offered up these quaffable low alcohol beers to thirsty farmhands across the region of Belgium along the French border. Since my first sip of a classic example, I have been enamored with many beers bearing the name Farmhouse or Saison. This is my attempt to pay homage to the heritage of the harvest season. Up front aromas of earthy spice, floral and distinct Belgian yeast. Slight fruity notes under subtle malt and effervescent carbonation make this beer refreshing, drinkable, and dry on the finish. Santé!

Working with the fantastic people at Mighty Axe Hops, we crafted a beer that would effectively highlight the freshest of hops character. A “wet hops” beer, made with ripe picked Centennial hops grown in Foley, MN!

Our aim was to extract all the great aroma and delicate nuances of green hops. The result, a beautifully bright distinct citrus laden example of a fresh hop IPA.
