Mainstays​

31 Hour Pale Ale - 5.4%, Medium IBU - An American style Pale Ale brewed with Citra, CTZ, Amarillo, and Chinook hops, then dry-hopped with even more Citra and Amarillo! Expect a medium-bodied, well-balanced citrus hop ale.

Bavarian Gangsta (German IPA) - 7.0%, High IBU - Zee Germans are not historically known for their IPAs but they grow some really great hops for them, so we used all German hops and malts in this IPA. Featuring Hallertau Blanc and Mandarina Bavaria hops, expect notes of mandarin, grapefruit, pineapple and grape.

Frickin Scruggly (DIPA) - 9.9%, High IBU - Like our Head Brewer’s beard, from which the name came, this Double IPA is unapologetic. It's brewed with over 32 pounds of hops in an 8bbl batch and has a calculated IBU of 146. Very bitter, yet well balanced, with a slight sweetness coming from the addition of honey malt. Featuring Chinook and Falconers Flight hops.

Giesen Weiss (Hefeweizen) - 5.1%, Very Low IBU - A traditional Bavarian wheat ale brewed with German malts and fermented with those sexy little Hefeweizen yeast! Expect a hazy, malty ale with aromas of banana and clove from the yeast.

Hildy's Helles - 5.1%, Very Low IBU - A crisp, light bodied traditional Bavarian Lager named after our Bavarian mom who once told us "Helles ist doch medizin!" (Helles is your medicine).

Spaceballs the Milk Stout - 5.0%, Low IBU - If Planet Spaceball had run out of bier and not air, this is the bier they would have stolen from Planet Druidia. This dark, roasty, chocolaty ale was brewed with lactose, oats, and flaked barley to give it nice body and smooth drinkability. May the Schwartz be with you!

Radler - 5.3%, Low IBU - Traditionally served to cyclists wanting a refreshing, less alcoholic beverage for their journey, our Radler is a mix of Hildy's Helles and lemon-lime soda.

Dozinky Pils (Czech Style Pilsner) - 4.5%, Low IBU - Brewed for New Prague's Czech harvest festival, this is a light and refreshing easy drinker. 100% Kazbek hops give this bier a noble hop quality with a slight hint of lemon. It's delicious and perfect for all day Dozinky drinking.

Hutton's Hefestoutzen - 7.3%, Low IBU - This creation, dreamed up by Owner and Head Brewer, Erin Hutton, is a perfect hybrid of Hefeweizen and Stout. Deep chocolate combined with the traditional banana and clove flavors of a Hefe, mix perfectly. Rich in flavor, and surprisingly dry, this beer is perfect for the stout lover.

Lambda Class Imperial [Trans]Porter - 8.7%, Medium IBU - A robust American style Porter. Notes of biscuit, dark caramel, and a slight smokiness from oak smoked wheat. Balanced with Northern Brewer hops and a late addition of Chinook to round it out.

Expect a smooth, chocolaty stout with notes of vanilla, a residual sweetness from the honey, and a pleasant bourbon finish.

Ruth Bitter Ginsburg (ESB): A classic British style Extra Special Bitter brewed in celebration of International Women's Day. It's exceptionally balanced: biscuity, earthy, fruity, and bitter. Named after gender equality warrior, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this crushable ale is a beer that keeps on giving.

Spaceballs the Coffee Milk Stout - 5.0%, Low IBU - 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!

Take Off, You Hoser! (Hopfen Ale) - 4.9%, Medium IBU - Nothing strange about this brew. German SMaSH ale brewed with Munich I malt and Tettnang hops. This bier has refined hop bitterness pleasantly rounded out by the breadiness of the malt.

​ 

Wookiee Series #2: Walking Carpet (Rauchweizen) - 5.2%, Low IBU - Even Princess Leia would approve of this Walking Carpet. Smoked malt gives this version of a traditional Dunkles Weissbier its unique flavor profile: a darker, maltier Hefe with a delightful smokiness.
