Be the first to sample one of our experimental small batch beers we call the Hayloft Series™. Before we go big, we brew small. We make these pilot brews in small batches from 15 gallons up to 3 barrels. This allows us to test out different ingredients, develop new techniques for our sometimes crazy brews, and do good ole fashion taste testing. Tell us what you think.
Horse Ghost Farmhouse Ale 5.4% | 25 IBU
Brewed with our isolated house wild yeast, this refreshing, funky, and tart farmhouse ale is named in honor of our favorite UG co-resident and brewhouse regular. Horse Ghost was the bravest and most decorated of St. Paul’s police horses who were once housed in this very building. This beer is a tribute to all the wonderful horses past and present that served in the line of duty.
Thrillz for Pils (Pilsner)
5.8% ABV | 20 IBU
Straightforward Czech Pilsner that is perfect for all seasons. Floral, crisp, and refreshing- we used American grown Saaz hops that present a noble hop aroma with herbal and earthy overtones.
Kölsch Effect™ (Kölsch Style)
4.7% ABV | 25 IBU
Kölsch style beer originated in Cologne, Germany. It is fermented at ale temperatures and then conditioned by lagering at cold temperatures. The result – a refreshing beer that has the crispness of a lager and the light fruitiness of an ale.
Key Lime Pie Ale 5.3% ABV | 10 IBU
Sometimes, we like to drink our dessert. Lime, graham crackers, and lactose create a refreshing blonde ale that is tart and subtly sweet.
