NEMPLS IPA 7.1% ABV
FULTON BREWING CO // MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Some beers just taste extra good. The flavors in this bright, juicetastic IPA seem a little more vibrant with the knowledge that each sip is helping to make positive change in the world. Fulton produced this beer in memory of an employee that was lost to depression, but out of the darkness they have made something bright. Aside from the smiles each sip bring to hop lovers, $1 from every pint sold is donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We are proud to help contribute to this effort and further find a way that beer can make the world a little bit better.
BELGIAN DARK TRIPEL 10.5% ABV
BROUWERIJ VAN STEENBERGE // ERTVELDE, BELGIUM
Prepare your soul for a true Belgian beer experience. Gulden Draak is one of the most iconic Belgian beers, with a tap handle and glass to boot. Rich flavors of caramelized sugar, dark fruits, and floral yeast esters are some of the highlights of this deep honey gold concoction. If you've got the patience to let it warm in your glass, you'll be rewarded with deeper flavors and a gentle warmth from the elevated alcohol content. The golden dragon emblem that is so tied to the beer is based off the statue that sits atop the Belfry in Ghent. If you need some proof of the magic of Gulden Draak (and just for some fun viewing) check out this video from Global Beer Importer's enigmatic Johnny Fincioen.
The Brut Squad
Brut IPA 6.1%
FAIR STATE BREWING CO-OP // MINNEAPOLIS, MN
If you want to be on the bleeding edge of beer trends, the Brut IPA may be the next big thing. We’ve seen the IPA go through many stages of popularity, it’s been white, black, Belgian, fruited, double/triple, hazy, and now brut. The defining characteristic of the Brut IPA is the bone dry finish with almost no residual sugars present in the beer as well as a higher level of carbonation. Fair State has whipped up a tasty example featuring Idaho 7 and Cryo Citra hops for a zesty, bright aroma, a very delicate malt body, and then a creeping dry finish that lingers, but in a different way from hop bitterness. The Brut Squad is a very refreshing hop experience that seems to beg for a creamy cheese to snack on between sips.
Wild Sour Ale
WISCONSIN SOUR BROWN ALE 5% ABV
NEW GLARUS BREWING CO // NEW GLARUS, WI
**Current wild/sour beer**
This beer choice was very selfish. I'll tell you all the reasons you should love it, but ultimately, I'm just smitten with it and am sipping it away as we speak (read?). I've only encountered this limited batch beer one other time from the brilliant mind and craftsmanship of Dan Carey. Brewed in the Belgian/Flemish tradition of allowing the beer to begin a spontaneous fermentation with yeast present in the local air, and then aging it in oak barrels or vats, this brown ale develops a tart flavor similar to green apple or tart cherry with earthy, caramelly, oaky, leathery notes. There's a lot to digest if you want to pick out all the distinct flavors and nuances, but don't forget to drink and enjoy it. A decadent use of this beer would be to make the Flemish stew, Carbonnade, with the tartness of the beer acting as the vinegar component to marinate and tenderize the meat...yumcity. Anyway, I'd hurry in because I just took another sip.
*COLD BREWED COFFEE* NOT BEER
BLEND FROM DULUTH COFFEE CO // DULUTH, MN
Brewed cold, steeped for nearly 24 hours, and served on nitrogen gas. The mellow, low-acid brew accompanied by the creaminess of the nitrogen creates a roasty, smooth, delicate coffee experience. Try it straight up, as a coffee float with ice cream, or with whipped cream and your favorite flavors in Off The Rails. This is also the base for our iced coffee drinks.
