This year, Autumn Brew Review will feature a number of breweries who have partnered with each other or a local industry partner. Check out some of these exciting collaborations!

  • 612Brew & Dual Citizen Brewing
    Rv4 – Norwegian Farmhouse Ale: The beer is called Rv4, the abbreviation of Norwegian National Route 4, keeping in the tradition of naming Dual Citizen’s beers after streets. Rv4 is 9% ABV, 15 IBU, features Bohemian Floor-Malted Pilsner malt and was brewed with Juniper Berry infused water keeping in the tradition of the style. The Kveik yeast was pitched at 80 F and allowed to free rise throughout fermentation to showcase the flavors that the Kveik is known for. The result is a rustic, earthy beverage that comes across well balanced and refreshing.
  • Alloy Brewing Company, 10K Brewing, & Hans Bakery
    BeeHive & BeeSting: Hans Bakery in Anoka, is known for its filled Pastry, the BeeHive and a smaller version known as the BeeSting. Come try a Belgian Strong by Alloy representing the BeeHive and 10K’s version of BeeSting.
  • August Schell Brewing Company & Sociable Cider Werks
    Planetery Gearbox: Blend of Freewheeler Cider fermented at the Starkeller and then blended with a mixed culture Berliner Weisse that was aged for a year in our cypress wood tank before being aged on raspberries for an additional 6 months.
  • Bad Weather Brewing Company & Fair State Brewing Cooperative
    Flavor Krystals: German wheat lager filtered clear.
  • Beaver Island Brewing Company & Spilled Grain Brewhouse
    Roggenbier: A Dunkle Weizen brewed with Rye instead of Wheat. A perfect autumn brew. The third in Spilled Grain Brewhouse’s “Outside the Loop” series that seeks to collaborate with outstate breweries and brew rare styles or put a unique twist on a traditional style.
  • Bent Paddle Brewing Company & Portage Brewing Company
    Scandihazian: Inspired by the centuries-old Norwegian farmhouse brewing tradition, this experimental New England DIPA was made with a Kviek yeast strain, sourced from the farmstead of Terje Raftevold in Norway. With notes of fresh pineapple, mango, and tangerine, we then layered in a juicy hop bill of Denali, El Dorado, and Waiti hops, alongside hefty amounts of wheat and oats for better mouthfeel. This was brewed in collaboration by Bent Paddle Brewing out of Duluth, and Portage Brewing out of Walker, MN.
  • Broken Clock Brewing Cooperative & 56 Brewing
    The Cat’z Pajamaz: A Juicy Hazy Double IPA with Honey and using Lemon Drop hops as the showcase hop.
  • Chapel Brewing & Mike Feist Northfield Apiary (Beekeeper)
    Imperial Honey Sour: Mike Feist provided raw MN honey, from MN bees he keeps on his land for harvesting honey. The honey along with the malt, that forms the base of our “Imperial Honey Sour.” The expressive kettle-soured character is matched, end heightened, with the genius of this collaboration between Feist, and our Siebel-trained brewer, Andrew Burns.
  • Dangerous Man Brewing Co & Modist Brewing Company
    Lemongrab: Lemongrab is an IPA fermented with Raspberry and Lemon juices and dry hopped with Citra.
  • Giesenbrau Bier Co & J&S Bean Factory
    Spaceballs the Covfefe: A great merchandising idea or a super smooth delicious coffee milk stout? We think it’s both! We took Spaceballs the Milk Stout and added fresh, cold brewed Organic Colombia Supremo from JS Bean Factory in Saint Paul. These two were a match made in heaven, with the brightness of the coffee bringing new life to the dark, chocolaty-ness of Spaceballs. This bier is perfect for breakfast or any time of day!
  • Imminent Brewing & Waxwing Farm/Homestead Honey Farm
    Honey Basil Ale: This delightful ale is summertime in a glass! Local honey from Homestead Honey Farm of Dennison, MN and fresh basil from Waxwing Farm of Webster, MN complement each other in this seasonal specialty! We keep the hop presence restrained, letting the aroma of the sweet basil come through. Finishes dry enough to invite another gulp. Pairs great with food… and thirst!
  • Inbound BrewCo & City Girl Coffee
    Coffee Milk Stout: Infused with City Girl Coffee’s cold press blend.
  • Lupulin Brewing & Junkyard Brewing
    Uffda Juice: 7.5% ABV Kveik IPA with loral Idaho 7 and Simcoe hops.
  • OMNI Brewing Co. & 56 Brewing
    Zero Friends: A hazy double dry hopped IPA with all post kettle hops for 0 IBU’s. Citra, Amarillo, and Mandarina Bavaria dosed in at over 6 lbs per barrel and with a high percentage of wheat, this is juicy & sweet with flavors of mandarin orange, tangerine, and sugared lemons. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Omni Brewing and named for the cellar vessel only hop additions. Omni version to be released in September.
  • The Freehouse & Mighty Axe Hops
  • Tin Whiskers Brewing Co & Pearsons Candy
    Nut Goodie Porter: This silky, dark porter will be aged on chocolate, peanut butter, and maple to mimic the flavors of Pearson’s Nut Goodie bar, originally introduced in 1912 and still produced on West 7th St. today. This will be a sneak peek at the beer, which will be released in cans and kegs later in 2018 as part of our Spark Series.
  • Unmapped Brewing Co., Triton Chemical & Oxxion Consulting
    Wicked Pumpkin Ale: An imperial strength amber ale brewed with pumpkin, vanilla and flat pan maple syrup. Post fermentation this beer will be aged on large chunks of smoked pumpkin and spiced with traditional pie spices.
