We have a bunch of special beer tappings, live music, and even a special can-release planned for MN Craft Beer Week “10,000 Minutes of Minnesota Craft Beer”!

Monday: Tapping “Blueberry farmhouse-style Experimental Sour” This “experimental sour” was brewed with blueberries and aged with brettanomyces (wild yeast).

Tuesday: A keg of a new Oatmeal Stout on our Beer engine!
(a beer engine is an old fashioned beer pump that was the inspiration for modern “nitro”)

Wednesday: Tapping “Grapefruit Gose”!
Gose, (”goh-zuh”), is a classic german sour beer style, and this special batch of our “experimental sour” was fermented with
grapefruit!

Thursday: “Project Wildness” fundraiser 6-9pm
The previously tapped beers will still be on tap, as long as they last!

Friday: Tapping oak-aged “Free Candy”
We’re tapping a special keg of our belgian-style quadrupel that was aged with toasted American oak and brettanomyces!

Saturday: Can Release! barrel-aged “Big kahuna”
This special batch of our coconut dark ale was aged in a Wild Turkey whiskey barrel. we’ll also have a keg of standard Big Kahuna on beer engine! (The barrel aged version won’t be on tap) *Cans will be $10/per with a 2-Can Limit, First Come First Served.

Sunday: “Beer & Hymns” music and singing with Pat Lenertz 7-9pm!
And if any of the previously tapped beers or cans are still around , we’ll be finishing them off on Sunday!

Did you know there are about 10,000 minutes in a week? Across the Land of 10,000 Beers, we’re trying to savor every one of them, with a locally produced craft beer in hand.

10,000 Minutes of Minnesota Craft Beer is a week full of Minnesota Craft Beer events across the state, from tap takeovers on the North Shore to beer tours of the Twin Cities to special firkin tappings in Southern Minnesota. So start your timers and plot your calendars to make the most of your 10,000 Minutes!
