Anybody remember what happened in beer politics in 2007? Berg? Hoops?
Back in 2007, our growler law was amended to allow small breweries and brewpubs to sell 750ml bottles in addition to growlers. That year I talked with Ken Thiemann who was in the planning stages of launching a small Belgian-style brewery near Duluth. His interest in selling beer in 750ml bottles at the brewery spiraled into legislation that eventually passed. So tonight, when I took a look at some new beer labels (thanks BeerNews.org), I was pleasantly surprised to see Ken’s name and Borealis Fermentery artwork on the label. No doubt we’ll have more to share on this soon!
At the Borealis Fermentery, our beers are craft brewed in small individual batches on Minnesota’s beautiful North Shore using pure artesian water and the freshest ingredients available. our beers are unfiltered and bottle conditioned. Please pour carefully decanting the beer into your glass while keeping the yeast on the bottom of the bottle.
- La Lune Belgian style special ale is a full bodied, golden ale brewed with spices and a hint of wheat malt.
- Mon Cherries is a Belgian style dubbel ale brewed with cherries. A wonderful compliment to any red meat dish, this beer can also be enjoyed with or in place of your favorite chocolate dessert.
- Speckled Ghost is an ode to the elusive trout. A Belgian Style Abbey Ale that melds hop balance, sweetness and a hint of maltiness.
- Nitwit is a refreshing Belgian style wit or white beer brewed using wheat and spices.
