The Nomad World Pub’s Midweek Beer Geek event tonight features a new one from 612 Brew. Today at 6pm, they’ll tap Maryanne, a ginger lager. As always, Minnesota Beer Activists will be hanging out as well.
Twin Cities Hop Stops is hosting a Minneapolis craft brewery tour on Saturday, April 6th from 11:30am – 4:30pm. The tour hits three craft breweries – Fulton Brewing, Dangerous Man Brewing and 612 Brew. A $69 ticket includes safe transportation, three brewery tour/taproom stops, beer, HopStops shirt, Q&A time at each stop, a HopStops glass and more.
With a name like Mary Ann, this beer needs a song. See below. Next Tuesday, Minneapolis’ 612 Brew releases Mary Ann, a ginger lager at Edina Grill starting at 6pm. Edina Grill will have menu items that feature Mary Ann and 612 Brew’s SIX and Main Stage Amber will also be available for your imbibing pleasure.
The following day, 612Brew will release Mary Ann in the taproom on draft and make it available for growler sales. The beer will be at other accounts in the coming weeks.
Mary Ann is 612Brew’s spring/summer seasonal offering. The beer is the brewery’s first lager, brewed with Pilsen and wheat malts, Noble hops and over 70 pounds of ginger. Wait. What? You read that right. Seventy pounds of fresh, hand-grated ginger is added directly into the boil. This beer isn’t infused with ginger – it’s brewed with it for an all-out flavor and aroma assault. Think ginger ale meets beer. This light lager is low alcohol at 4.1% ABV and amazingly refreshing.
