Bauhaus and Fair State Set to Release New Beers This Week

Scottish Ale

When you think of a Scottish-Style Ale you tend to think of a peaty beer backed with a boozy punch. Bauhaus broke down some of those walls with their brand new Scottish-Style Dark Ale named Tallander. First of all, the name (in Bauhaus fashion) is a nod to the 1986 movie “Highlander” that we all know and love. The beer itself is different in that it’s very drinkable at 6 % ABV and has some of those nice caramel notes typical of Scottish malts while teasing the palate with a tiny bit of smokiness. While sampling this one I couldn’t help but think of standing around a backyard fire pit with a Tallander in hand.
This brew can be found in 4 packs of 16 oz. cans at your local bottle shop, and on tap at the “Haus” in Northeast Minneapolis. Growlers will also be available.

Fair State’s first bottle release went so well that they decided to do it again. This time they are bringing Saison Drei to market which is a Brettanomyces Aged Saison. Expect some funky characters from the Brett that will mature over time—which means you can sit this one down in your cellar for a while. Brewer Niko Tonks had this to say about their latest release. “We modeled this beer after some of the beers we enjoy drinking the most. We hope you will enjoy it this holiday season, and down the road as well.”

This 5.7 % ABV will be on sale in the taproom ($11 per bottle) on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 4:00 PM on Thursday, December 17th in 750 ml bottles. I’m told that they will have more bottles for sale this time around and that the brew will also be on tap that day.


Fulton II, Electric Boogaloo

Fulton Brewing Co.Updated.


Fulton Brewing Co. announced today that they’ll be building a new brewery in Northeast Minneapolis and should be brewing by late 2014. They’ll be moving into the Caswell/Meggit Building at 2540 2nd Street Northeast with a new 80 barrel brewhouse, high speed bottling and kegging lines. They expect an initial capacity of 20,000 bbl. Let’s hope they don’t outgrow this one TOO soon.

Once the new brewery is up and running, all of their distributed beer will be brewed in Northeast Minneapolis, leaving their North Loop brewery open for small batches to supply their taproom. And lest you get excited about another taproom in Nordeast, don’t count on it. The guys plan to maintain their taproom in North Loop, and due to Minnesota law, they can only have one taproom.

Exciting news… congrats guys! It seems like just yesterday that I was sampling a homebrewed version of Worthy Adversary.
