Sol Bock

German-Style Maibock
Sol Bock is our interpretation of a Maibock. We use all American West Coast hops to yield a prominent orange-citrus character. Decoction mashing enhances the already softer than traditional malt profile, resulting in a creamy vanilla backbone with subtle hints of toast and caramel. You are left with a unique and refreshing marriage of citrus and malt swirling from this medium-bodied brew.
6.5% ABV • 35 IBU

Crankshaft & the Gear Grinders

Crankshaft has been pounding the pavement since 2008, developing his own “pork neck” style along the way. A sound heavily rooted in rock ‘n’ roll, blues, country, swing, and surf that “could not have been imagined prior to the early punk scene,” as described by Dig In Magazine. Rock solid original lyrics, a dedicated fan base, and his 21st century twist on the American roots is pushing him to the top of the crowded Minneapolis music scene in a hurry. Born into this world from gas station cassette tape collecting semi-truck drivers, Alex “Crankshaft” Larson was introduced to a wide variety of music as a pup. In April 2008, while self-employed as a contractor, he started practicing as a one-man band and was playing shows two months later. In 2010, backed with the business skills he developed running a construction company and the strong DIY ethics he learned from his connection to the underground punk scene, Crankshaft decided to hang up his hammer for good so he could focus on writing and performing music. Since then he’s been earning a living playing, as both a traditional one-man band and as the leader of his trio, Crankshaft and the Gear Grinders. Harriet Brewing continues their new concert series in the Tap Room and welcomes Crankshaft & the Gear Grinders with special guest Lonesome Dan Kase on April 25. This will be a featured show as a Pre-Party for Sol Bock Revival April 26.
