Fish Top Fish Bottom

There are many existential questions that plague the insomniacs, intrigue some of the greatest philosophers of our time, and foster the most lively debates between breweries in the North Loop & Buffalo, MN. 


Introducing Fish Top Fish Bottom, a Malted Milk Ball Coffee Toffee Imperial Milk Stout that we made with our friends at Hayes’ Public House. Fish Top Fish Bottom won’t only spark lively conversation, but it was also brewed with Golden Promise barley, pale chocolate, chocolate wheat malt and milk sugar. It was then conditioned on malted milk balls, espresso coffee, toffee bits and cocoa nibs. There’s a lot to debate here, but one thing that’s for sure not up for debate is that Fish Top Fish Bottom is 13%. ABV

Apiary Drip is Back

A couple years ago, our bffs at Dangerous Man buzzed over to help us brew a beer that had a crazy high amount of honey. Well, we were going to brew it again last year, but then, well, last year happened, and now, this year happened. So, they buzzed back over here and we enlisted the help of the ever talented Ebby Pruitt (art currently in our taproom) to design one of the raddest labels we’ve ever put on a beer. 


Re-introducing Apiary Drip, our Double dry hopped Honey Cream Double IPA brewed with barley, wheat and oat malts, local honey, milk sugar, hopped and double dry hopped with our hand-selected Strata, Simcoe, Sabro, cryo Simcoe and cryo Sabro. Locally sourced 8.4% alc/vol.


Apiary Drip will be released in the taproom on Saturday, February 27th and will begin making its way to liquor stores on Tuesday, February 23rd. Check back here on Tuesday for the local delivery schedule.
