Earth Rider Festbier | The life of the party! Earth Rider’s Munich-style Festbier is a golden lager with bready malt character and subdued floral-hop aroma.

Superior Pale Ale | Brewed for Northlanders who live near the greatest lake. American hops lend citrus notes to this crisp, clean, and easy drinking pale.

Caribou Lake IPA | Hop aromas of pine and berry harken to lakes of the far North. A prominent malt backbone balances moderate hop bitterness.

Precious Material Helles | Old Bavaria meets Great Lakes adventure. German hops and Lake Superior water create an invigorating beer—bright and refreshing.

North Tower Stout | Bronze medal winner at the World Beer Cup in the Oatmeal Stout category (2018). Malty accents of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit are balanced with a restrained hop presence in this stouthearted ale.

Raspbecrush | As inviting as a Lake Superior raspberry patch! Raspbecrush is a kettle-soured wheat ale with pail-loads of raspberries. Light, refreshing, and deliciously tart.

Cedar Sour Red | Allouez Amber was the base for this mixed-fermentation sour. Cedar Sour Red was allowed months of secondary fermentation in a French Oak barrel with the addition of bacteria and brettanomyces yeasts. Cedar blocks added for an earthiness and warm woody tone to the lightly tart dark-fruit flavors.

…and many, many, many more!

This event will take place out-of-doors in our comfortably reimagined, socially distanced, green space. We have a limited number of picnic tables so come early and bring your blankets and chairs.


We are serving the new space with single serving compostable cups and disinfecting each table between uses. We ask everyone to wear a mask when moving around and while ordering beer. Tables are spaced to allow for social distancing between groups.


– Please maintain a 6 foot physical distance. Stay back!

– Free hand sanitizer is available at both beer service areas.

Please practice patience, tolerance, and kindness at this strange and difficult time.
