CURRENTLY ON TAP:
Irish Red Ale | 5.8% ABV, 20 IBU
Not your regular corned beef and cabbage…this brew features a toasty caramel aroma, and a reddish-copper hue. The sweet up front and smooth semi-dry finish makes this Irish Red highly complex. It offers smoky hints of fire roast, and an indulgence of smooth, bready, and caramel flavors. This is the local Alexandria favorite.
Rye Beer | 5% ABV, 19 IBU
When the 8 Goths and 22 Norwegians made the voyage to Minnesota in 1362, you could have been sure they were thirsty. The Runestone Rye is an homage to this hotly debated artifact. Much like the Kensington Runestone, it is a little rough around the edges. The Rye adds a peppery undertone which complements its semi-sweet malt bill. This beer is nothing short of a legend.
Blueberry Wheat | 5.5% ABV, 17 IBU
This is the perfect brew to keep you warm as fall approaches. The blueberry isn’t overpowering. There is a touch of honey malt that adds a sweet backnote. The red wheat adds some fun depth to the beer. All the while, you can reminisce to Grandma’s Blueberry Pies cooling on the window sill on a brisk autumn day.
IPA | 6.8% ABV, 96 IBU
At first appearance, this IPA hands you a fluffy off-white head and a gorgeously clear copper hue. After the first sip, it’s nice warmth and full bodied nature is reminiscent of curling up next to a toasty bonfire. The crisp semi-bitter bite makes this a sit around the fire type of brew. Down to the last drop, this is true hops at its finest.
Milk Chocolate Stout | 6.1% ABV, 45 IBU
The sun has set on this Minnesota specialty brew. We’ve all been there when the clock strikes twelve. Just a slight breeze accompanies the vastness of the sky above. Stars as far as you can see. The Midwest Midnight is smooth with a slight sweetness. Berry and Nectar poke through from some insanely awesome hops. The Cacoa Nibs from Ghana give a chocolaty finish that fights with a roasty and slightly astringent dryness for the final flavors. It is getting late, and you are in the Midwest.
Scottish Export | 6.3% ABV, 21 IBU
Golf. Scotland. Hand in hand. Play 18 holes, what comes next? The 19th Hole! This brew packs a punch and is true to its style. Heavy caramel and earthiness come through but are definitely not overpowering. From the course to your hand, sit back and relax after a long summer day!
Smash Pale Ale | 5.8% ABV, 50 IBU
A beer brewed with one malt and one hop! A pale ale malt that was malted right in Detroit Lakes, MN was used for this brew. It is a very sweet malt that brings a large depth of complexity. The hop chosen was a Simcoe hop. We chose it to provide a super refreshing undertone, while also adding a slight bitterness to the back end. At only 50 IBU’s, this beer only has a hint of sharpness, so it is sure to please on the hottest of summer days!

Kölsch | 4.8% ABV, 18 IBU
Summer Suds is exactly that...summer in a glass. This sessionable brew brings out the best 2 months of Minnesota. Lemon and lime citrus undertones complement the honey malt. For being so light, the suds is packed full of flavor! This could just be the perfect refreshing beach beer.
