Twins Pils Debuts at Target Field for 2022

It’s about time. A local sports team finally has an official craft beer partner. Dave St. Peter and the Minnesota Twins have teamed up with Summit Brewing and Mark Stutrud (both from North Dakota) to bring Twins Pils to Target Field beginning this year. For years we’ve had to settle for Budweiser or Miller at stadiums here in Minnesota. Now there are local breweries teaming up with our local sports teams to bring their products to the field.

About the Beer:

Twins Pils is a rebranding of Keller Pils, made with German hops and barley. Unfiltered and crisp—perfect for a day at the ballpark, or out by the grill with friends and family.

There will be 16 oz. cans available for purchase at Target Field starting on Opening Day. You will also find 12 packs of 12 oz. cans at your local liquor stores.

Alcohol by Volume: 5.1%
IBUs: 38
Original Gravity: 11º P
Color, (deg. L.): Pale Straw (4L)
Hops Utilized: Tettnang, Huell Melon
Malts Utilized: Weyermann Barke Pilsner Malt
Yeast: German Lager

Pairs Well With:

The beer is a perfect match for the new beer battered walleye with sea salt and jalapeno tartar sauce menu item from Mac’s Fish and Chips. Perfectly crisp beer with battered fish is always a hit.

New at Target Field:

A new walk-in beer cooler has been installed at Target Field where fans will be able to select their beer from the cooler and pay for it at the kiosk of “The Market” which is located just inside of Gate 6. We were told that if you lined up all the beer in the cooler, it would stretch about 1 mile!
