  • Locality #1

    Fruited Sour Beer
    ABV: 6%
    IBUs: 5

    This is our first fruited barrel-aged sour beer that was aged in a neutral red wine barrel with a mixed culture of bacteria & wild yeast then aged on with about 400 lbs of locally grown organic aronia berries from Janesville, MN. A deep ruby & magenta color, it has light tannins from both the fruit & barrels with some funk & acidity. This is the first in our series of mixed culture sour beers using locally grown fruit or produce. This beer is bottle conditioned so it can be cellared but we suggest drinking it sooner than later (it is a 25.4 fl oz bottle).

    $6 per 12 oz pour
    Off sale only: $12 bottle

  • Aromaticity

    Dry-Hopped Sour Beer
    ABV: 6%
    IBUs: 5

    This funky pale sour beer was soured with lactic acid bacteria, fermented with the wild yeast Brettanomyces & dry hopped with MN grown Mighty Axe Hops ARTIC Blend. Plenty of tart funk with lemon & citrus notes. This beer is bottle conditioned so it can be cellared but we suggest drinking it sooner than later (it is a 25.4 fl oz bottle).
    $5 per 12 oz pour
    Off sale only: $8 bottle

  • Arcadia

    Sour
    ABV: 7.5%
    IBUs: 20

    This is our first mixed culture sour beer aged in white wine barrels. It started as a strong saison brewed with MN grown grain & hops, then spent over a year in neutral white wine barrels with wild yeast & bacteria. It is super funky with lots of tart acidity & tannins. It is a bottled conditioned beer, so it can be cellared but we recommend drinking it sooner than later (it is a 25.4 fl oz bottle). *Caution: this is a highly complex sour beer, so be prepared for an “acid” trip on the funky side.*
    $6 per 12 oz pour
    Off sale only: $10 bottle
