Lawn Dorts - Dortmunder Export Beer

LAWN DORTS

DORTMUNDER EXPORT

ABV 4.6% | 27 IBU

A true Arbeiter’s beer!!! Dortmunder is a hoppy lager brewed with hard water and was drunk by coal miners and steelworkers in the industrial city of Dortmund. BUT THAT WAS THEN.

Now’a-days Dortmunder is also enjoyed while playing lawn games all summer long. But to give it that dangerous edge akin to coal-mining it’s best to enjoy a Dortmunder while playing with the dangerous and now illegal lawn darts. We’re only kidding, please stick to the much safer coal mining. 

| AROMA |
A distinct Saaz-forward spice nose of woody-ness with herbal notes; faint floral notes of Hallertau Mittelfruh.

| FLAVOR |
A lovely malt richness is quickly followed by grassy noble hop flavors, with a robust hop complexity, amplified by the hard water profile. 

CRUNCHY LIVIN’

ROGGENBIER W/ HONEY

ABV 5.2% | 21 IBU

Howdy, have ya heard the good word about crunchy livin’? This here par-tic-u-lar beverage is an elixer born of the earth and put together by the blistered hands and bleeding hearts from the folks at Arbeiter and Forager Brewing. 

Forager Brewing in Rochester, MN has been making creative and quality beer for over 6 years from a combination of locally foraged ingredients, regionally native grains, and wild hop varieties. Arbeiter has been making both traditional and German-inspired ales and lagers… so it was a natural fit that we made a Roggenbier! Roggenbier is a German rye beer; for the foraged aspect, we used locally-sourced buckwheat honey from Gardner Bees out of Sleepy Eye, MN.

| AROMA |
A faint yet quintessential honey aroma greets you followed by a warming earthiness underneath.

| FLAVOR |
A subtly earthy rye spice flavor is rounded perfectly by the rustic flavors from the buckwheat honey. Light bodied, beautifully balanced, and clean-finishing. 

Arbeiter Brewing - Hefeweizen

HEFEWEIZEN

ABV 5.4% | 13 IBU
Contains Wheat

It’s officially summer, our Hefeweizen is on tap! Sorry, we can’t allow you to put your head under the tap and let you drift off into Hefe bliss but you can order a couple while soaking in the sun on our patio. 

This is a traditional Bavarian wheat beer brewed with a unique and characteristic yeast strain that imparts phenolics of clove, banana, nutmeg, and vanilla. 

Hefeweizen directly translated from German to English is “yeast wheat”. Stylistically, hefeweizens carry a considerable amount of yeast in suspension – this contributes to the flavor profile as well as the body of the beer, and is really simply a defining characteristic of the style! So do not be surprised if you see a faint coating on the walls of the tall glassware and even a thin layer of yeast at the bottom of the glass. If you can think of it, please encourage guests to purchase crowlers to gently roll or otherwise rouse the yeast off the bottom of the can back up into suspension before opening.

| AROMA |
Distinct and classic weissbier aroma full of clove, banana, and vanilla notes.

| FLAVOR |
Welcoming notes of vanilla and subtle banana sweetness perfectly balanced by a rich and smooth clove spiciness. 

SQUISHY PEACHES

UNFILTERED ALE WITH LEMONGRASS, CHAMOMILE, AND PEACHES

ABV 4.8% | 30 IBU
Contains Wheat

A farmhouse-style, Saison-inspired, table ale brewed with lemongrass, chamomile, and peaches. Squishy Peaches drinks clean, dry, and grassy with hints of lemon peel, floral tea notes, and a nice peachy background.

A portion of the proceeds from Squishy Peaches will be donated to MNPOCPRIDE Since 2014 the MNPOCPRIDE organization has connected and served the LGBTQ+ POC community state-wide through HIV health advocacy, furthering their civic engagement work, the constant fight for LGBTQ+ people of color equity and equality, and producing the annual Twin Cities Black Pride Festival.

| AROMA |
Lovely and bright tea-like spice and floral aromas from the chamomile atop lemongrass aromas of lemon rind plus fresh-cut wild grass with a peachy fruitiness bridging it all.

| FLAVOR |
Clean and light body with very pleasant grassiness, hints of lemon citrus, and a dry yet balanced finish with a delicate but noticeable peach note throughout.

RASPBERRY A.F.

ACID FACTORY SOUR ALE

ABV 4.5% | 19 IBUG

A kettle sour base not too dissimilar from a classic Berlinweiss, with added raspberries to make this a poppin’ red sour!

| AROMA |
Bright fruity aromas of raspberry.

Clean and inviting  raspberry tartness up front with a satisfying fruity body and a real-raspberry-tannic finish.

NON-ALCOHOLIC INDIA PALE LAGER
*CROWLER ONLY!

ABV <.5% | 60 IBU

Our N/A beer experiment continues and continues to impress! Our N/A IPL retains body that maybe N/A beers lack. The Citra hops come through as good as ever!

COOL JAZZ

COLD IPA W/ JASMINE RICE
COLLABORATION W/ BREWING CHANGE COLLABORATIVE

ABV 7.3% | 67 IBU

Cool Jazz is a Cold IPA featuring Jasmine rice and a hop bill that has flavors of mango and grapefruit.

Brewing Change Collaborative works to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion for people of color in the brewing and beverage industries through advocacy, outreach, and education.

| AROMA |
Candied orange and grapefruit fruitiness with richer pine resin notes 

| FLAVOR |
Tropical and pungent hop flavors of ripe mango and grapefruit, followed by a subtle resinous finish. The alcohol content and rich maltiness give the illusion that Cool Jazz drinks “fuller bodied” than it actually is – the first sensation of a very light beer on your palette is quickly overcome with the aforementioned malt, alcohol, and hop oils; yet it still finishes clean!

MAIBOCK

MAIBOCK/HELLES BOCK

Arbeiter’s Maibock is here! A truly delightful beer to bring in the Spring. Our Maibock is decocted delivering a complex flavor profile not achieved by regular brewing methods. The slightly stronger lager has notes of bread, grain husk, caramel, and bright noble hops. It also boasts a beautiful dark golden color. A ‘must drink beer’ of the spring! 

| AROMA |
The unmistakable and intensely lush Delicate sweet caramel maltiness with notes of gently toasted bread. 

| FLAVOR |
The flavor follows suit from the aroma – a fairly light body carries rich and complex malt flavors of sweet caramel, freshly baked bread, with notes of grain huskiness as well as some nuttiness in the background. The decocting process – boiling a portion of the mash to caramelize the sugars in the grist – creates a malt richness that when coupled with a clean fermentation, makes for a seemingly divergent effect that cannot be created by other brewing means.

COSMIC DANCE

HAZY IPA

ABV 7.4% | 23 IBU

Whirling and twirling with the stars in the sky to that infinite jam of epic…erm whatever. We made this New England IPA with the Australian, Galaxy hop, as well as the Zamba hop — Cosmic, meet Dance!

Tropical and citrus notes about in our new hazy with flavors of Pineapple and orange. Dry-hopped for the IPA stans out there

| AROMA |
The unmistakable and intensely lush tropical aromas of passionfruit and ripe citrus from Australian Galaxy are prominent thanks to a hefty dry hop charge!

A soft oaty mouthfeel carries mellow bitterness and subtle hop flavors of pineapple and orange. A very clean finish leaves you wanting more!

Arbeiter Brewing Duel City Belgian IPA

DUEL CITY

Belgian IPA

COLLAB WITH BAD WEATHER BREWING

ABV 8.1% | 54 IBU

A collab? A friendly competition? A collabpetition? It’s a Crosstown Classic of epic proportions. Two of your favorite breweries on either side of the Mighty Mississip’ teamed up to bring you TWO cool new beers born of the same wort!

For our Belgian Battle, we brewed up a massive Belgian over at Bad Weather that was used for their incredible huge 10.3% Belgian Double IPA. The beer was so incredibly massive we shipped 10 barrels of unfermented wort back to Arbeiter to make our own, massive in its own right, 8.1% Belgian IPA. Can it get any bigger? Yes. Both Belgian IPAs were dip hopped which accentuates the hop aromas and flavors! *DROOL*

| AROMA |
A beautiful blend of citrus and grassy hop aromas with the unmistakable peppery phenolic and slight fruitiness of this particular Belgian yeast strain. 

| FLAVOR |
Very clean-tasting for this type of beer, expect Belgian yeast-driven flavors of floral spiciness with a fresh grassy and mild citrus hoppiness.

Talus is a newly named hop variety from the Hop Breeding Program and delivers bold flavors of grapefruit rind, pine resin, and a creamy coconut-like richness.

Arbeiter Nacht Rider

NACHT RIDER

SCHWARZBIER

ABV 4.9% | 23 IBU | Contains Wheat

Schwarzbier (Black Beer) is arguably one of the hardest styles to brew. It is very dark brown to black in color; the source of dark color in beer is roasted malts which, naturally, in part roasted flavors. A Schwarzbier should arguably have NO roasted flavors! Nacht Rider is brewed in the Bavarian Schwarzbier tradition, showcasing Munich malt flavors with a medium but smooth body.

| AROMA |
Lightly roasted coffee beans, bakers chocolate, freshly made caramel.

| FLAVOR |
Clean and smooth caramel/toffee, dark bread, and light roast coffee flavors. Some say the mark of a very well-made schwarzbier is that if you close your eyes, it shouldn’t taste like you’re drinking a dark beer. This version comes close but has a touch too much chocolate flavor.

SIDE HUSTLE

Nitro Milk Stout

ABV 5.5% | 23 IBU

Frugality was the inspiration for this milk stout. We had decided to make a monster of an imperial stout for the winter as well as for more barrel aging but making wort with very high sugar contents is inherently wasteful. We decided to save the wort that still has plenty of sugar in it to be useful, wort that would have just been dumped down the drain. This wort is referred to as “second runnings” – the sugar content of which would have diluted the highly concentrated wort desired to make the imperial stout, but still with plenty of sugar to make a beer with moderate alcohol content. Due to the limitations of the brew house, we could only fill the kettle halfway from a full mash tun to attain the concentration of sugar desired to make the imperial stout; so to make a full batch, we had to mash and collect the most concentrated wort twice, while filling the boil kettle once. The second runnings from each mash were diverted to a holding vessel, then brought together in the boil kettle after the imperial stout wort was boiled.

| AROMA |
Very pleasant sweet milk chocolate with notes of high percentage cacao dark chocolate. 

| FLAVOR |
Light-bodied and smooth; velvety semisweet chocolate mingles with delicate roasted malt flavors. 

HAHA PILS

NORTHERN GERMAN PILSENER

ABV 4.9% | 38 IBU

This pilsener slaps so hard, it’ll make you
laugh. Haha Pils is our flagship pilsener.
Haha Pils is the cleaner and more hop-

forward pale lager you’ve been looking for.

Brewed in the Northern German tradition
(thus the spelling with the extra “e” as
opposed to “pilsner”), Haha Pils is cleaner
tasting and more hop-forward than it’s
maltier brethren from deeper within the
European continent. Our pilsener is brewed
using the highest quality German pilsner
malt and mashing techniques to ensure a
clean and crisp malt profile. A perfectly
complex hop profile containing earthy,
grassy, hay, wildflower, and spicy fresh
herbs demand your attention and make
you wonder why your glass is already empty.

| AROMA |
Balance of clean grain huskiness and floral hoppiness.

| FLAVOR |
Clean malt profile from top to bottom; hop flavors are a mix of floral and hay with a hint of herbal spiciness.

WESTKÜST

IPA

ABV 6.9% | 72 IBU

West Coast meets Hallertau (hop growing region in Germany)! Westküst finds its way as a West Coast American IPA by enlisting a full array of German-sourced hops and malts.

The first of our “Bavarican” beer series, Westküst achieves an American IPA flavor profile by enlisting a full array of German-sourced ingredients. The blend of German-grown hop varieties employed provides a unique but familiar flavor profile that includes citrus, resinous, grassy, and some fresh herbal notes; not unlike what would be found in a traditionally made American IPA.

ARBEITER® BIER

German Blonde Ale

ABV 5.4% | 18 IBU

A beer for the people! A beer designed for those who are looking for just “beer”, as well as those looking for a palate refresher in-between hop, sweet, or sour bombs. 

It’s the perfect first and last beer of your session. It’s light and balanced, with a restrained cracker-like malt profile and a hind of noble hop character

| AROMA |
Light fruity pear-like aroma.
