Northbound Smokehouse

Altered State

Altbier | 5.6% ABV | 50% IBU


Taking inspiration from a traditional German Altbier using Kosch yeast, we decided to amplify the hops greatly making this almost an IPA. This light-medium body beer has plenty of Munich malt to carry that bitterness with flavors of toast and baked bread. The hops give a spicy layer surrounded by floral and herbal notes.


Northbound Smokehouse

Northbound came on the scene 2012 after crowd funding their way into production. The model worked and the brewery is now a proud winner of a Silver Medal in the World Beer Cup, one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world. Unlike many other breweries in the Twin Cities, Northbound Smokehouse is truly a brew pub with a restaurant and full bar. Their Smokehouse Porter epitomizes Northbound Smokehouse, a great brewery with fantastic BBQ and a large whiskey selection- capturing the essence of smokey, grilled foods and pairing well crafted brews.
