Superior Beer

  • Superior Pale Ale

    ABV: 5.5%   |   IBU: 40   |   SRM: 3.3

    Denali and Citra hops lend citrus and pineapple notes in this easy-drinking pale ale. A crisp, clean, and dry-finishing pale.

  • Earth Rider IPA

    ABV: 7.4%   |   IBU: 94   |   SRM: 8

    Complex hop aromas of pine, grapefruit, berry and peach tease the senses before the first sip. Complex hop flavors of pine, citrus, stone fruit, and berry dominate the taste with a malt backbone to offset the moderate hop bitterness. Clean finish.

  • North Tower Stout

    ABV: 6.0%   |   IBU: 28   |   SRM: 36

    Chocolate and roasted barley aroma with sweet malty flavors of chocolate, dark fruit and coffee perfectly balanced with an unassertive hop presence.

  • Precious Material

    ABV: 5.5%   |   IBU: 29   |   SRM: 3.7

    A bright, sparkling, and refreshing helles crafted with the noblest of raw materials. Old Bavarian brewing meets Great Lakes adventure. German Tettnanger hops and Lake Superior water create an invigorating and flavorful brew.

  • Apricrush Tart

    ABV: 5.5%   |   IBU: 15   |   SRM: 4.4

    Light, slightly hazy kettle-soured wheat ale. The aroma is clean, citrusy with apricot. The tart flavor is balanced by a slight malt sweetness. All-natural apricot flavor is revealed before finishing dry.

  • Earth Rider Duluth Coffee Pale Ale

    ABV: 5.8%   |   IBU:   |   SRM:

    Earth Rider and the Duluth Coffee Company teamed up to craft this honey-colored cold-press coffee pale ale. Aroma and flavors of herbs, spice, berry, cocoa, roast, and wood. Hop bitterness is restrained with coffee providing much of the bite sought in a pale. Bready malt and coffee flavors become more pronounced and complex as it warms.

  • Royal Bohemian Pilsner

    ABV: 6.0%   |   IBU: 37   |   SRM:

    Weyermann Boheminan Pilsner Malt gives a sweet malty aroma and flavor. Saaz and Saphir hops balance with floral/herbal, spicy, and citrus notes. Crisp and clean with a slight bite. Finishes dry. An ode to Twin Ports’ brewing history.

  • Allouez Amber Ale

    ABV: 5.7%   |   IBU: 31   |   SRM: 19

    Allouez Amber Ale is dryer and roasty-er than most amber ales. Dark fruit, roasted coffee, and toasty flavors come out as it warms. Low hop presence balances the sweetness with a clean and spicy bitterness. Finishes dry.

  • Twin Porter

    ABV: 5.1%   |   IBU: 34   |   SRM: 27
  • Valhalla Winter Warmer

    ABV: 9.1%   |   IBU: 31   |   SRM:

    Earth Rider Valhalla Winter Warmer is a burly Scotch ale with roasty notes of caramel, prune, and raisin. Malt sweetness is high yet this beer finishes remarkably dry for the style.

About Earth Rider

Fiercely independent Earth Rider Brewery crafts world-class beer with Lake Superior water and peerless ingredients. Earth Rider’s team is proud to sustainably produce beer for the Twin Ports, and the South and North Shores of Lake Superior.

Earth Rider is the first brewery in Superior, Wis. to produce beer for the region since 1967 when Northern Brewing Company ceased operations.

The brewery building was constructed in the late 1880s as a bakery, transformed to a “bakery supply” store during prohibition, and then lasted five generations as a beer wholesaler (Leamon Mercantile).

Earth Rider’s Cedar Lounge taproom sits adjacent to the brewery. The Cedar is a historic Northern Brewing Company tied-house tavern constructed in 1912.

Earth Rider is a member of the Bev-Craft network of independent breweries, comprised of a team of decorated brewers and brewing-industry professionals with a mission to keep independent craft brewing robust.
