No big deal... Just what we're drinking these days...
Hibiscus Saison, Inbound BrewCo Honestly, @Purrrfectpints recommended this to me, but I’m stealing this rec and spreading the love! The hibiscus notes are very prevalent, it reminded me of my favorite hibiscus tea. It’s a beautiful deep red color with a slightly dry, tart finish.
Phase Shift 02,
Rye whiskey barrels increase the complex flavors of this porter and it is delicious. Not only do I think it was awesome, my cats love it, too… smelling it, I don’t let my cats drink beer. Bonus points for the whiskey barrels coming from local distiller, Isanti.
Fair State Brewing Co-opNo one makes this classic German sour, seriously no one…well if you Google maybe someone… but basically no one besides Fair State is crafting this smoked sour wheat beer. I love smokey flavors and I love sours - and when they are combined to the right levels - it's fantastic.
Barrel Shifter, Tin WhiskersTin Whiskers is made of engineers turned beer-gineers, and my story is very similar. It feels like they engineered Barrel Shifter specifically for me- I love a good dark beer with vanilla notes. The hint of cherry really tops it off well. Us engineers have to stick (and drink) together!
Last Fathom Dark Lager, Lake Monster
A taste of Munich with a Minnesota twist. A well-balanced classic dark lager. Toasty, warm and nutty, with light notes of caramel and chocolate - Just what you need to carry you through the last couple months of a Midwest winter.
Roselle, Fair State Brewing Co-opI'll just go out there and say it. I'm a Fair State fanboy. Sorry, not sorry. It's like they can't produce any bad beers. Some kind of strange superpower. Anyways - this is the classic, the measuring stick, the standard - by which I measure my sours. The smooth balance of tart, floral and fruity notes keep me coming back every time.
