Uncle Piwo Polish Ale

We all have a Polish uncle somewhere. He’s got a big laugh and a belly that shakes with it, a loud voice, and has a string of bad jokes that he tells with a beer in his hand at every family gathering. He’s also your favorite uncle. Our Uncle Piwo (pronounced pee-vo) is an old Polish style of ale called a Grodziskie, made with oak smoked wheat malt for a mild smokiness and bready flavor, lightly hopped for subtle bitterness, light bodied and low alcohol for easy drinking, and a crisp, clean finish. There’s a reason that Uncle Piwo is your favorite. 3.7% ABV, 23 IBU, 4 SRM

Whistle Stop Blonde

Whistlestop Blonde is a light bodied gluten-free beer with an assertive hoppy bitterness, made for those of us who like beer, but find that barley beer doesn’t like us. Brewed with sorghum malt, Belgian candi sugar for color and lightness, and Denali hops for bittering and a floral aroma. This might be the station that you need to stop at.

5.6% ABV, 43 IBU, 5 SRM

Empire Builder Imperial Stout

The Empire Builder passenger line was the flagship passenger line for the Great Northern Railroad and it’s successor, the Burlington Northern Railroad. Running from Chicago to Portland, this mighty line crosses the northern tier of the United States, bridging east and west. Our Empire Builder is a dark, rich, malty, American-style Imperial Stout. Hints of stone fruit and currants, with a sweet malty undertone but assertive hoppiness for balance.

10% ABV, 56 IBU, 55 SRM

Crow Wing Cream Ale

Cream ales are one of the first uniquely American beers, and the Crow Wing River runs deep through the memories and the culture of central Minnesota. This beer is a blend of barley malt, wheat and corn and German Hallertauer hops provide balance, to make a crisp, smooth, refreshing brew.

5.5% ABV, 23 IBU

Golden Spike IPA

The eastern and western lines of Northern Pacific’s transcontinental railroad were joined together near Independence Creek in western Montana in 1883. To commemorate the occasion, the first spike driven at the start of railway construction near Carlton, Minnesota was used to connect the last section of rail. It was named the Golden Spike, and was driven home by NP President Henry Villard, former US President Ulysses S. Grant, and Henry C. Davis, who had driven that first spike. Our Golden Spike, commemorating the completion of construction at Roundhouse Brewery, is a golden colored Imperial IPA, loaded with premium brewers and dark crystal malts, generous doses of Mosaic and Crystal hops for aromas of citrus, spice, and blueberry, and Magnum hops for a clean bittering finish.

8.9% ABV, 87 IBU, 10 SRM.

Detonator Doppelbock

Detonators were frequently used in the building of railroads where explosives were necessary to level the bed for track to be laid.  Keeping with tradition that Doppelbock’s names end with -ator, we named this traditional styled Doppelbock the Detonator.  You will find this dark, full bodied lager has a big malty flavor paired with a strong sweet aroma and just a bit of roasted malt.  The Northern Brewer and Crystal hops add just the right bitterness for a smooth ride all the way down.   Just the way riding the rails should be.   

8.7% ABV, 20 IBU and 21 SRM.

Coal Train Porter (CO2 & Nitro)

Think of sooty dark cars loaded with anthracite, moving through the night, dancing to the music of the rails. A robust porter, dark as night and smooth as jazz. Flavors of roast malt, coffee and cocao, with a mild caramel sweetness for balance.

5.6% ABV, 40 IBU, 28 SRM.

Cinder Dick IPA

A cinder dick was a railroad policeman. Cinder dicks spent their days walking the cinders of the railyard, looking for thieves trying to break into boxcars, investigating wrecks for wrongdoing, or riding the trains guarding valuable freight. A hard, bitter job that deserves a bitter beer. Cinder Dick IPA is brewed with pale and dark crystal malts for balance, with Columbus, Northern Brewer, Cascade and Mosaic hops for a floral and citrus aroma and a strong, clean hop finish.

5.8% ABV, 76 IBU, 9 SRM

Old Betsy Brown Ale

The first locomotive in the Northern Pacific Railway was a wood-burning engine named the Minnetonka, and its job was to haul ties, rails, and other supplies used to help build the railroad along the line westward as it was constructed and advanced from Carlton, Minnesota. When the line was completed, the locomotive was sold to the Polson Lumber Company. It was renamed “Old Betsy” and hauled timber until 1928 when it was retired and abandoned. Old Betsy was recovered by the Northern Pacific Railway in the mid-’30s and restored it to working order. The sturdy little locomotive is still owned by the BNSF Railroad and is on permanent loan to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth. Our Old Betsy is a sturdy malt-forward Northern English-style brown ale, with 2-row premium brewer’s malt and dark malts for complexity and rich flavor, with the balance provided by Magnum and Northern Brewer hops.

5.1% ABV, 30 IBU, 17 SRM.

Ms. Galena Apple Sour

Ms. Galena O’Neill was a business woman in Brainerd in the late 1800’s. When her husband Jack (original owner of the Last Turn Saloon) passed away, Ms. Galena leased a building on the corner of 4th and Front Street and began running a locally famous house of ill repute. The fines that Ms. Galena and and her “soiled doves” paid every month over the next few years helped finance many features of downtown Brainerd that are still there today. Ms. Galena is dedicated to the notion that life is not always sweet, but you can still get things done. Our Ms. Galena is a blonde ale, kettle soured and then infused with apple cider to provide a crisp, tart, fruity beer with a hint of amber color and light body.

Contains milk products.

5.4% ABV, 26 IBU, 10 SRM
