    5.3% ABV | 25 IBU | 10.7 GRAVITY

    This is a single hop barrel-fermented dry-hopped sour featuring Mosaic hops. Dry, oaky, stone fruits, citrus, a hoppy edge, and restrained acidity. We aged it for you, drink it fresh.

    3.8% ABV | 30 IBU | 8.8 GRAVITY

    Low in alcohol and fairly smoky, our Grodziskie was dry-hopped and barrel fermented with a blend of yeast and bacteria, resulting in a moderate acidity and "farm-y" character.

    5% ABV | 20 IBU | 10.7 GRAVITY

    Third in the Bricoleur series, this beer is an 80% stainless fermented, 20% barrel fermented blended sour beer. Brewed with malted wheat, hopped with Centennial and Meridian.

  • LICHTENHAINER $14 BOTTLE ON TAP

    5.1% ABV | 10 IBU | 10.6 GRAVITY

    Smoked beer is an acquired taste. So is sour/funky beer. We've acquired those tastes, and as a result we present to you this barrel-fermented, 100% oak- and beechwood smoked sour wheat.

  • SCHWARZBIER ON TAP

    5% ABV | 30 IBU | 12.4 GRAVITY

    A nod to the traditional German-style black lager, intensively step-mashed for malt body, not sweetness, assertively hopped for a grassy, spicy aroma. Complicated without being obtrusive.

  • VIENNA LAGER ON TAP

    5.3% ABV | 25 IBU | 12.5 GRAVITY

    Our interpretation of the classic Vienna lager - pale amber in color, medium bodied, ever so slightly toasty from Munich and Vienna malts, complimented by a grassy noble hop nose.

  • PILS ON TAP

    4.9% ABV | 40 IBU | 11.9 GRAVITY

    A German-style pilsner, dry and crisp with a grassy hop aroma from a large kettle addition of Hallertau Mittelfrüh. One hop, one malt, lager yeast. Simple and delicious.

    Bricoleur #4 is an 80% stainless fermented mixed culture Saison, 20% barrel-fermented mixed culture sour blend, dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc. Tart, funky, with a hoppy nose.

  • HEFEWEIZEN ON TAP

    5% ABV | 12 IBU | 12.2 GRAVITY

    A traditional Bavarian-style wheat beer. Pale, spritzy, with plenty of banana, clove, and vanilla notes - all from the yeast! No bananas were harmed in the brewing of this beer.

  • DORADO GOLD $10 BOTTLE ON TAP

    6% ABV | 50 IBU | 12.9 GRAVITY

    Brewed exclusively with El Dorado hops, this dry-hopped IPA is fermented with a combination of Saccharomyces Trois and Brettanomyces. Fruity, funky, and hoppy.

  • SIMCOE SOUR ON TAP

    5.5% ABV | 25 IBU | 11.3 GRAVITY

    This is a single hop barrel-fermented dry-hopped sour featuring Simcoe hops. Juicy, tropical, and quaffable, this beer balances pale ale and sour beer. We aged it for you, drink it fresh.

  • STUPID SEXY FLANDERS! ON TAP

    5.9% ABV | 8 IBU | 12.2 GRAVITY

    Hi-diddley-ho, beer drinkerinos! This is a mixed culture sour red fermented with lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. Toasty dark malts, acidity, funk, and an irritatingly positive disposition.

  • DU POUNDE ON TAP

  • ROSELLE ON TAP

    5.7% ABV | 19 IBU | 12 GRAVITY

    Roselle is soured with our house lactobacillus strain and infused with hibiscus flowers, which lends the beer floral and citrus aromas and flavors and its red hue. Tart, fruity, and floral.

  • FLYOVER COUNTRY ON TAP

    5% ABV | 22 IBU | 10.7 GRAVITY

    The things that inspire us are closer at hand than we might think: corn, domestic six and two row barley malts, lager yeast, barrels fashioned of MN oak, Cascade hops of local origin, a bevy of microbes.

  • DO I NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO COME HAVE A BEER?

    Absolutely not! Everyone is welcome, anytime. We have
    special prices for members sometimes, but non-members are always welcome. The more, the merrier.

  • WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?

    4-11pm Monday-Thursday, 2-12 Friday, 12-12 Saturday, 12-9 Sunday. Phew.

    We’re located at 2506A Central Ave NE, right next to Recovery Bike.

  • GROWLERS?

    We fill 64oz and 750ml growlers.

    Most beers are $14 for 64oz growlers, and $7 for 750ml growlers. Sours and strong beers cost slightly more.

    We fill growlers from other breweries, provided they are the proper size, and are clean. We can’t stress the clean bit enough!

    We also have a few board games, a non-plastic darts board, and a TV that shows select MN-related sporting events (sans sound, for those who aren’t into TV).
