The WitchHunt

Witches are everywhere. You may not believe it, but it’s true whether you like it or not. Once you start looking, you’ll see us everywhere- including your favorite local brewery.

Us witches here at Fair State wanted to make a special brew just in time for Halloween. And to make it extra powerful, we wanted our coven with us. So we put out a call, through the witchiest of all communication channels: a private email server. 

We found witches everywhere: witches from Northeast, North Loop, and St. Paul. Some witches even flew down from Duluth! 


On October 9th, 2017, we all gathered around our cauldron and made a bitter, bitter brew. The malt was blackened over fires fed by the bodies of the damned. We didn’t just use hops, oh no! There’s no alpha acid percent high enough to express the feeling you get when your employer has to reassure you that you can still get birth control because the current administration no longer requires employer-sponsored health insurance plans to cover it. In addition to Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Tahoma, this beer was bittered with the rage of every witch who has been persecuted by the flame of injustice. (We also dry hopped with X331). Fermented with a dry English ale yeast, cursed in the kettle, this Cascadian Dark Ale is a reckoning. ABV: 6.66%, IBU: 70

Try it…if you dare.

The WitchHunt will commence in the Taproom at 4 pm, Thursday, 10.26.
