First Call Frappe

We decided people are sick and tired of the cavernous divide that exists between a crisp refreshing lager and The Cheesecake Factory, so we built a bridge and you’re welcome.


Introducing First Call Frappe, a Turtle Cheesecake Coffee Lager brewed with pilsner malt, malted oats and milk sugar then conditioned on Wesley Andrews Coffee, cocoa nibs, pecans, caramel and cheesecake. What kind of cheesecake has 6.5% ABV in it? Checkmate.


First Call Frappe will be released in the taproom & will begin to make its way to liquor stores TOMORROW! You’ll also be able to find it in Beer Advocate’s Extreme Beer Box, filled with 12  extreme beers from around the US.

ModLabs

Innovation and tradition. You can’t have one without the other. We get a lot of flack about “ruining tradition” or “making god cry” because of the things we attempt to do to beer. Little do they know that we’re steeped in tradition, which is why we teamed up with our friends at Bauhaus—known for tradition, rowdy outdoor concerts & staff that know how to make music good—to make a cool amalgamation of two of our favorite lagers: Bauhaus’ Stargrazer and Modist’s Pretty Metal.


Introducing ModLabs, in collaboration with our good friends Bauhaus, our Oak-Aged Dark Lager brewed with german pilsner, munich malt, crystal and roasted malt. Kettle hopped with Bravo, Saphir, cryo citra & sabro then aged and lagered in our oak foeders. A subtle, yet traditional 5.2% ABV.


ModLabs will be released in the taproom & will begin making its way to liquor stores TOMORROW!

Playing Dead

2 years, 24 months, 730 days, 17,520 hours, 1,051,200 minutes, 63,072,000 seconds. That’s how long we allowed Playing Dead to play dead in both Four Roses & Eagle Rare bourbon barrels. Now, after an extended game of Playing Dead, we’re ready to play more dead.


Introducing Playing Dead, our Imperial Milk Stout brewed with Golden Promise, malted wheat, crystal malt, chocolate malts and a touch of lactose. Aged for 24 months in Four Roses Small Batch 6yr & Eagle Rare 10yr barrels, then conditioned on heaps of our selected Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla beans. It may all be pretend, but the 13.5% in Playing Dead is real.


Playing Dead will be released in bottles on Saturday, December 18th at 9 am in our online store (does not have cart protection). It will then go on tap in the taproom at noon. All bottles purchased online must be picked up on either Saturday or Sunday, December 18th & 19th. All bottles not picked up over the weekend will be refunded and put back into our inventory on Monday, December 20th and will be available for purchase on Tuesday, December 21st via our online store and in the taproom.


Huge shout out to Adam at Twelve Vultures for letting us come into his shop in NE Minneapolis to capture photos for the label.

Imalready Sour

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I really do love an Amaretto Sour, but I’m really craving a beer right now”? Well, thanks to the ingenious mind of Chef Ian Gray, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.


Introducing Imalready Sour, a collaboration with Chef Ian Gray. This Sour Ale was brewed with Minnesota malted barley and wheat. Then conditioned on Italian Amaretti di Saronno cookies, heaps of almonds, lemon juice and a touch of brown sugar. Bringing the beloved Amaretto Sour cocktail to the beer world. 7.5% ABV


Imalready Sour will be released in the taproom on Saturday, December 18th.

MoonGuts

There’s a common misconception that the moon is either made of cheese or a combination of rock and metal. What “the government” (the reptilian elite) doesn’t want you to know is that the moon is a living organism, and it creates a substance known as MoonGuts®.


Introducing MoonGuts, our New England double IPA brewed with flaked wheat, malted oats & golden promise barley malt. Hopped & double dry hopped with our hand-selected Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Cryo Sultana and Cryo El Dorado. MoonGuts are highly potent with 8.3% ABV.


MoonGuts will be released in the taproom on Saturday, December 11th and will begin to make its way to local liquor stores on Tuesday, December 14th. Check back here on 12/14 for the local delivery schedule.


Shout out to Kyle Coughlin, aka @Moonguts for this out of this world label art.

Oatrich

One can have wealth in many things other than casheesh. There’s knowledge, Frank’s Red Hot, bubble gum, origami penguins, and of course the most obvious: oats.


Introducing Oatrich, our Double Stout brewed with flaked oats, malted oats, Golden Promise malted barley, T-50 caramel malt, chocolate malt and roasted midnight wheat malt. With an extended boil & over 30% oats, Oatrich is rich in flavor, texture & 7.5% ABV.


Oatrich will be released in the taproom on Saturday, December 11th and will begin to make its way to local liquor stores on Tuesday, December 14th. Oatrich will be around through mid to late winter, so you’ll be able to find it at your favorite Modist provider.
