  • Sibling

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

    A dry hopped mixed culture saison that is a blend of a young saison with one wine barrel of one of our mixed culture sour beers. It was dry hopped with the 2020 Pink Boots hop blend & bottled. This is the “sibling” of our other saison “1st Born”. Funky, fruity & just a bit tart.

  • Guava Globe Trekker

    Hazy Pale Ale
    ABV: 6%
    IBUs: 40

    A new version of our adventurous hazy IPA that combines U.S. Cashmere hops with German Huell Melon & Callista hops. To compliment the melon, citrus & tropical notes, we added over 150 lbs of pink guava puree, giving it a light pink tint & even more tropical fruit notes. Think globally, drink LocAle beer!

  • Locality #2

    Fruited Sour Beer
    ABV: 6%
    IBUs: 5

    This is an intensely funky & sour mixed culture sour beer that started its life as an amber sour beer aged in white wine barrels for over a year with a mix of wild yeast & bacteria. It was then transferred onto nearly 400 lbs of locally grown watermelon from our good friends at Cedar Crate Farm! Don’t expect the usual juicy watermelon notes; this sour beer is brimming with earthy, somewhat fruity complex funk. This is the second 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).

  • Cherry Lime Fizz

    Hard Seltzer
    ABV: 6%
    IBUs: 0

    Our first leap into the world of hard seltzers, this ultra-refreshing hard seltzer was made with clean filtered water, organic cane sugar & a special fast fermenting yeast. We added Michigan-grown Montmorency cherry juice & all-natural lime (hence the intense red color & citrusy Key Lime-like aroma) to create your ultimate late summer beverage! No artificial flavors or extracts were used & all ingredients were certified gluten-free, so this hard seltzer is as free of gluten as it gets!

  • 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).

  • 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.*
