Keep Up To Speed
We're bringing a bit of Minneapolis to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by breaking ground on a taproom and pilot brewery.
We’ve been holding in a secret for a really, painfully long time and we’re so excited to tell you that we just signed on to build a brewery and taproom in “Brew City,” Milwaukee, Wisconsin! That’s right, we’ll be the first Minnesota brewery to break ground in Wisconsin that has both locations under the same ownership, and we’re happy to join 30+ breweries in the city built on beer. Our new spot sits in the Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee on 530 South 2nd Street, and our plan is to have the beer flowing to Wisconsinites by mid-2019. Indeed Milwaukee will have a 10-Barrel brewhouse and a cozy, inviting taproom that seats 100+ people.

Northeast’s Original Taproom meets Northeast’s landmark diner. A few months back, we brewed a classic style root beer for our dear friends at Ideal Diner and voila! Ideal Root Beer was born. It was our first time brewing a non-alcoholic beverage through our system and it turned out pretty dang tasty. We chatted with one of our co-owners, Tom Whisenand, multimedia producer, Andy Kiekhafer, and brewer, Jon Eager, to get to the “root” of this collaboration.
Hullabaloo is back Saturday, October 6th, and Sunday, October 7th
Pumpkins and sweaters, crunching leaves and a cool breeze, Hullabaloo is back for another kick-off to all your favorite fall festivities! Join us October 6th and 7th for special beer releases, live music, delicious grub, and good autumn vibes. Pull out your beanies and flannels from the back of the closet and get ready for a Hullabaloo-ing good time!
Can you feel it? The rumblings of a Flavorwave have been building and it’s time to finally let it burst! Enter Flavorwave, a juicy and tropical IPA exploding with notes of pineapple and dank citrus. A blend of Denali, Citra, Mosaic, Centennial, and El Dorado hops give this beer a whirlpool of flavors sure to send your taste buds on a ride while remaining approachable. Flavorwave comes in at 6.2% ABV and 73 IBU pouring a sunlit golden color with a respectable amount of natural haze.
You may have recently seen a shiny new toy at our brewery on our Instagram or Facebook. No, it’s not Barbie convertible (this time), but a brand new KHS can filler! This machine is the real deal and we are now one of less than a handful of breweries in our region that now have it.
For years, our wild, sour, and barrel-aged Wooden Soul beers have been waiting to party. They've been quietly developing, fermenting, refermenting, re-refermenting, and now they're ready to bring the funk straight to you.
Join us for Wooden Soul Week: Seven Days of Sour! We'll be getting wild at events throughout the Twin Cities with our Wooden Soul beers. We’ve mapped out our schedule below, featuring everything from brunch, tap takeovers, free oysters, and a pop-up record shop, to trivia, flights, sour school, and tours of The Woods - our barrel-aging warehouse.
Friday May 18th 5pm-11pm - Saturday May 19th 12pm-11pm - Sunday May 20th 12pm-8pm
RSVP on Facebook.
This Valentine’s Day we’re all about the love. And not just the love of beer, although we obviously have some strong feelings (How do we love you Day Tripper? Let us count the ways). Instead, we’re pouring out the stories of a few couples that graciously decided to include us their big days. And whether “to have and to hold” describes the way you feel about your partner or just your next glass of Mexican Honey, we think you’ll enjoy them too.
Sour beers are so hot right now. Store shelves and tap towers around the state are brimming with all kinds of tart beers to pucker up to, but a lot of mystery remains about one of the biggest trends in craft brewing. This week, we’ll release our most sour beer to date, Strawberry Fields Sour Ale. We got to thinking about how we measure the amount of sourness or acidity in our beer, and thought it was a perfect time to sit down with quality manager Daniel and get the scoop on how we gauge the power of our sours.
Cheers and auld lang syne (whatever that means)! We'd look it up, but we're still getting used to the idea that it's 2018 already. Last year flew by, and was filled with a lot of hard work, good times, and great beer.
