Bauhaus Wonderstuff Pilsner
Fantastic family owned brewery in NE Minneapolis that is turning out some great crisp and refreshing brews. Wonderstuff is a great clean beer that gives you the crispness of a pilsner with a touch of hops.

Bent Paddle 14° Extra Special Amber Nitro
I cannot say enough good things about this brew, silver and bronze medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival. Classic take on arguably the most balanced style of beer available. You get great hop notes from Amarillo and an excellent toasted malt flavor that makes you think of fresh baked bread. If I needed to use one word, it would be balance.

Tasty Belgian wit beer, brewed with Valencia oranges and coriander. Hops are very subtle and let the spices and orange shine. Bit of a lemony wheat and zesty yeast for the finish.

Cold and crisp from the cold Rocky Mountain water. There is a reason why this is the #1 beer in MN.
Goes down ice cold and refreshing.

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA
Using a heavy helping of Citra and Mosaic hops make this a nice tropical treat. This beer changed the IPA market by itself and MN helped by drinking more Fresh Squeezed then the state of Oregon has. See why this is such a popular beer.
(Oregon, 6.4 ABV, BA score 96, 16 oz)
Fair State Roselle
Nice refreshing Hibiscus sour ale from the original Co-op brewery in MN. Pours a slight pink with little head forming, not as sour as many others of the style due to the Hibiscus. This also lends the brew its floral and citrus aromas and flavors, so good for summer.

Fulton Lonely Blonde
Sometimes simple really is best. Very even brew throughout with a great crispness. Nice amount of wheat combined with some great German hops help make one of the standards of MN craft brewing scene.
(North Loop Minneapolis, 4.8 ABV, BA score 85, 16 oz)
Grain Belt Premium
Minnesota’s friendly beer. Slightly sweet, crisp drinkable pilsner similar to PBR but here you get to keep your money in MN vs sending it to LA. Not to mention you are sitting in the original home of Grain Belt.
(New Ulm, MN, 4.6 ABV, BA score 76, 16 oz)
Indeed Day Tripper
4 lbs. of Willamette, Cascade, CTZ and Summit hops help give this beer its dankness. Big bold citrusy pale ale with enough malt to keep it in balance, though don’t kid yourself this is a hopheads delight.
(NE Minneapolis, 5.4 ABV, BA score 90, 16 oz)
Sociable Cider Werks Freewheeler
Most traditional European cider that Sociable has to offer. Using Haralson, Honeycrisp, Sweetango and Topaz apples to provide a great well-rounded cider. Light, crisp, slightly tart and never overtly sweet.
(NE Minneapolis, 5.8 ABV, BA score NA, 16 oz)
Steel Toe Size 7
We might be a little biased but this might be the best IPA in MN from Bunny’s home in St. Louis Park, Big west coast styled IPA bursting with plenty of hops. Seriously, if you have never tried this and are a fan of hops there isn’t much of a choice.
(St. Louis Park, 7 ABV, BA score 91, 16 oz)
Solid European import from Belgium, served in the Stella chalice. Very drinkable crisp lager without any off flavors. Nothing crazy on the flavor side just a good solid classic beer.
(Belgium, 5 ABV, BA score 72, 16 oz)
Minnesota’s first real craft brewery starting in 1986 with this being the owners own homebrew recipe. Replaced Premium as many Minnesotan’s go to beer and still producing world class, well balanced brews. Can never go wrong with a cold pint of Extra Pale Ale.
(St. Paul, 5.3 ABV, BA score 83, 16 oz)
The biggest baddest craft brewery in MN outside of Schell’s and Summit. These people set the stage for MN’s booming craft scene over 10 years ago now. Big bold west coast style IPA that burst with hops. One of the highest rated IPAs in the country, if you have been sleeping on this brew do not wait any longer.
