FOUNDATION 2024

Blanton’s Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout

ABV 11.3% | 64 IBU
The Blanton’s barrels perfectly complement our Imperial Stout. Foundation is only available once a year for our anniversary and is gone about as fast as it comes. This year marks the 3rd year of Foundation.

| AROMA |
Complexity of big, rich, deep aromas
including dark cacao, rustic oak, toffee,
vanilla, and dark cherry that welcomes you upon first waft.

| FLAVOR |
Rich dark chocolate, blackberry, and oak
notes are prominent; complimented by a
very satisfying warmth from the alcohol
content. There is still a fluffy smoothness
that these extra special barrels impart on
the flavor profile – an indescribable
characteristic – it’s just simply delicious.

MAMA TRIED

Wheat Whiskey Barrel-Aged Barleywine

ABV 10.1% | 55 IBU
Outlaw Barleywine was aged in a wheat whiskey barrel from J. Carver Distillery. As its name suggests, breaks some geographical norms with its flavor profile – it has the hoppiness of a western US version while also exhibiting spiciness from the addition of rye malt and an alcohol intensity. 

| AROMA |
Woody or leathery, chocolate, alcohol, and caramel or burnt sugar aromas.

| FLAVOR |
An intensity of flavors including but certainly not limited to English toffee and pear/apple fruit notes; you can also get some chocolate and raisin notes. Mama Tried is arguably the most complex of the trio, there’s a lot going on!

JOLENE

Brandy Barrel-Aged Barleywine

ABV 10.1% | 55 IBU
Outlaw Barleywine was aged in a brandy barrel from J. Carver Distillery. Outlaw Barleywine, as its name suggests, breaks some geographical norms with its flavor profile – it has the hoppiness of a western US version while also exhibiting spiciness from the addition of rye malt and an alcohol intensity.  

| AROMA |
Beautiful aromas of raisin, caramel, chocolate and tobacco.

| FLAVOR |
Jolene drinks the mellowest or smoothest of the three barrel-aged barleywines, which I feel favors it. The flavor profile is like an expensive dark chocolate bar fruited with blackberry or cherry, with an oaked finish. It is succinct and refined.

BORN TO LOSE

7-Year Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine

ABV 10.1% | 55 IBU
Outlaw Barleywine was aged in a 7 year bourbon barrel from J. Carver Distillery. Outlaw Barleywine, as its name suggests, breaks some geographical norms with its flavor profile – it has the hoppiness of a western US version while also exhibiting spiciness from the addition of rye malt and an alcohol intensity. 

| AROMA |
Lovely and welcoming bourbon aromas of oak, tobacco, and leather.

| FLAVOR |
This 7-Year Bourbon barrel is quite special! It’s about as decadent a barrel-aged beer as I’ve made here so far – it’s rich and thick, with all that amazing oak/toffee/vanilla/caramel character that you’d expect in a bourbon barrel-aged beer, it has those indescribable notes that I seek; it’s so rich that if you were tasting blindly, this barleywine could be mistaken for an imperial stout! By far this brewer’s favorite in the trilogy.

TOKKI

Korean Rice Lager

ABV 4.5% | 11 IBU
Tokki is a delicate rice lager, and is one of our most popular beers at Arbeiter and a future flagship.

| AROMA |
Light fruitiness and delicate floral hoppiness float upon a very subtle aroma of cooked sticky rice.

| FLAVOR |
A light and crisp mingling of crackery pilsner malt and nuanced cooked white rice along with a suggestion of floral grassiness from the noble hop blend.

FREQUENCY SHIFT

Fruited Hazy IPA

ABV 7.4% | 29 IBU
* Contains Wheat
Frequency Shift is a hazy IPA with baobab fruit, mango, pineapple, and persimmon.

This An exciting collaboration with our very own Anthony Jennings and his Black Brewer’s Podcast, along with Greg Davenport, Daquan Richard, and Elanis Molinar in celebration of Black History Month! A portion of proceeds from sales of Frequency Shift will be donated to the National Black Brewers Association.

Last year, the guys wanted to make a very fruity kettle sour with some unique flavors – we thought about African fruits and landed on baobab and persimmon. The baobab tree, known as both the Tree of Africa and the Tree of Life, produces a hand-sized green fruit that has a tangy-citrus flavor. As it turns out, the fruit is turned into a powder that can be used to make smoothies to enhance health benefits including being high in antioxidants, a vegan source of calcium, and having more potassium per serving than bananas! Persimmon is a tree fruit related to date plums that looks like an orange tomato and has a sweet and tangy flavor that can be reminiscent of peach or apricot. To enhance these special fruit flavors and their unique applications in the brewing process, we decided to use a combination of mango and pineapple in primary fermentation which in fact deepened the sweet, citrus, and tangy fruit flavors. 

| AROMA |
Bright tropical and citrus aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and orange, with some melon-like sweetness from the persimmon.

| FLAVOR |
The citrus tanginess from the baobab and pineapple gets along beautifully with the citrus hoppiness while characteristics of melon and almost-vanilla-like-creaminess from the persimmon add depth and complexity.

RESOLUTION

NA Mocha Stout

ABV <.5% | 20 IBU

This non-alcoholic beer was made with a special process from our friends at ABV Technologies that strips the alcohol from the beer itself

The removal of alcohol knocks the perceived sweetness down since the alcohol in a way acts kind of like salt in cooking – you might not taste it directly, but it indeed adds to the overall flavor of the finished product; that product is not the same without it!

* Contains lactose, caffeine

| AROMA |
Subdued and pleasant candied orange hop Bold and boozy aromas of chocolate-covered raisin Medium roast coffee with woody/tobacco/cigar notes in the aroma.

| FLAVOR |
Light-bodied and smooth; velvety semisweet Intense semi-sweet chocolate, date, and prune. Drier stout on the front end reminiscent of a 90% Cacao chocolate bar that finishes slightly sweeter with ample roastiness and a hint of coffee.

OUTLAW

Barleywine

ABV 10.1% | 55 IBU
Outlaw Barleywine, as its name suggests, breaks some geographical norms with its flavor profile – it has the hoppiness of a western US version while also exhibiting spiciness from the addition of rye malt and an alcohol intensity. 

| AROMA |
Prominent dried fruit aromas of date or prune evenly blend with sherry-like alcohol and rye spice notes. 

| FLAVOR |
A fairly intense hoppiness yields to a warming from the alcohol and spicy prune-like flavors. The flavor profile mellows and rounds as the pour warms. Once it warms you’re rewarded with a marshmallow-like fluffy sweetness and less hoppiness.

WINTERZEIT

Golden Lager

ABV 4.6% | 22 IBU

Winterzeit is a Golden lager, not to be confused with amber lagers in the style of Märzen/Oktoberfest. Despite the lower alcohol content, it stands tall on a blended base of bright German Pilsener and bready German Munich malts with delicately balanced floral hop notes, a great, long-lasting white head, and a moderately full-body. It shares traits similar to Helles and Maibock.


| AROMA |
Rich and sweet yet clean caramel and bready malt aromas with hints of bright tea-like hop aromas.

| FLAVOR |
Intense and bright malt sweetness blended seamlessly with clean floral and subtly fruity hop flavors. 

WILDFLYER

Coffee Stout

ABV 4.6% | 22 IBU
*Contains Wheat and Caffeine

A collaboration with our neighbors at Wildflyer Coffee – we worked with Wildflyer to create a unique Arbeiter Blend of coffee that not only went into the stout but that we will also be selling as bagged coffee while the coffee stout is available

A great beer for the Twin Cities!

| AROMA |
Woody/tobacco/cigar roast coffee aromas
atop bakers chocolate notes with a hint of
caramel sweetness.

| FLAVOR |
Earthy coffee and dark chocolate flavors blend ahead of a balanced
bittersweet finish.

BREAKING BREAD

Pumpernickel Rye Ale

ABV 5.6% | 15 IBU
Breaking Bread is a dark rye bread-inspired brown ale. The slightly sweet dark rye bread has long been tied to the Westphalia region of Germany; so making a beer version of pumpernickel bread with German ale yeast originating from Dusseldorf seemed like a no-brainer. In addition to a generous percentage of rye malts in the mash,
molasses and dark brown sugar were
folded into this brew to make for a uniquely tasty beer.

| AROMA |
Freshly baked bread with a subtle warming molasses spiciness.

| FLAVOR |

Crisp yet rich bready mouthfeel on a blend
of brown sugar, rye, and molasses. Spicy
and sweet; dry, yet a full body.

NACHT RIDER

Schwarzbier

ABV 4.9% | 24 IBU
Schwarzbier 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, baker’s 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.

Nacht Rider

NITRO CHOCOLATE MILK STOUT

Milk Stout

ABV 4.0% | 20 IBU
*Contains lactose,  wheat

Sessionalbe milk stout made with milk sugar and cocoa powder served on nitro

A little milk stout made with cocoa powder and intended exclusively for our nitro line this winter! This beer will not be available on CO2 draft nor will it be available in crowlers or 16oz cans to go. 

| AROMA |
Nuanced cocoa aromas of dark bakers chocolate and gentle roastiness.

| FLAVOR |
Velvety smooth mouthfeel from the combination of lactose and nitro, you’ll find cocoa-like bakers chocolate notes with a touch of dark chocolate flavor on the finish.

BATCH 201

Imperial West Coast Pilsner

ABV 8.8% | 48 IBU

For this landmark brew, we wanted to take our love of pilsners and amplify it! A 2023 favorite of ours, the West Coast Pils, was the perfect beer for us to ramp up.

Double decocted and double dry hopped, this resulted in a nuanced monster of a beer — or a gentle giant, or subtle behemoth. Your pallet is barraged by a unique yet familiar blend of elements consisting of clean hop flavors like orange, grapefruit, and pine oil, while big malt flavors like fresh caramel and sweet bread intermingle with a mild alcohol sweetness. Although this is a complex-tasting beer, the body remains light and crisp as a pilsner oughta be!

| AROMA |
Prominent sweet citrus aromas of Valencia orange and tangerine, with bready malt undertones.

| FLAVOR |
Your pallet is barraged by a unique yet familiar blend of elements consisting of clean hop flavors like orange, grapefruit, and pine oil, while big malt flavors like fresh caramel and sweet bread intermingle with a mild alcohol sweetness. Thanks to proper attenuation, the body seems relatively light for such a complex beer.

ORANGE MANGO SPRITZIG

Seltzer

ABV 4.9%
*Gluten Free
A crisp and refreshing alternative to our beer offerings. The citrus flavors make this seltzer a real thirst quencher!

| AROMA |
Citrus aromatics.

| FLAVOR |
Clean, bright, and citrusy.

Your Opacity Hazy IPA

YOUR OPACITY

HAZY IPA

ABV 6.6% | 23 IBU

This is an incredible hazy IPA made by some lager dorks. Zagging from the Citra and Mosaic hop mainstays we combined Calypso and Cashmere hops resulting in a Strawberry and tropical flavor.

| AROMA |
Bold fruity aromas of tropical and strawberry.

| FLAVOR |
A chewy yet smooth body carries the fruity hop flavors that the haze heads will love.

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 a beer”, as well as folks looking for a palate cleanser between hoppy, sour, and imperial beer.

| AROMA |
Light fruity and almost pear-like.

| FLAVOR |
Delicate sweet malty flavors with fruity ester notes from the yeast, followed by a very clean finish.

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

Westcoast-Style “Bavarican” IPA

ABV 7.0% | 70 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.

We call it, “Bavarican”, because Westküst achieves an American IPA flavor profile by enlisting a full array of German-sourced ingredients.

| AROMA |
Apricot/peach pit, some tangerine and grass notes, and even some resinous green pepper aroma.

| FLAVOR |
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.
