The “angel seat” on a train is the raised observation seat up in the cupola of the caboose. From the angel’s seat, a conductor could watch the train, looking for hot boxes (overheated wheel bearings) or fires started by hot cinders flying out of the locomotive. It’s the highest seat on the train. Our Angel Seat Amber Ale will put you in the best seat in the house, too. Smooth, malty flavor and aroma, with a crisp, clean hoppy finish. 5.7% ABV, 40 IBU, 15 SRM.

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

The east shore of Boom Lake was the site of the Brainerd Brewing Company, established in 1881. The Brainerd Brewing Company produced a lager using “ … a malt produced in Minnesota and the best domestic hops … obtained from the Pacific coast, [and] a considerable quantity of German hops….” (from Special Publication, 1910, p. 16, Brainerd Tribune, A. J. Halsted, Editor and Publisher). The brewery was forced to close down permanently in 1915. To honor the tradition established in those bygone days, we’ve developed our own premium lager, using pilsner malt produced in Minnesota, balanced by American Crystal and German Northern Brewer hops. Crisp, light bodied, with a mild malt flavor and aroma. We think our predecessors would be proud. We certainly are. 5.3% ABV, 22 IBU, 4 SRM.

The clock tower building looks out over the Northern Pacific rail yards, and has been a local landmark since it was first built in 1882.

Clock Tower Kölsch is a light, crisp, pale beer with slight fruity notes and a dry finish, perfect for a summer day. 4.6% ABV, 26 IBU, 6 SRM.

“Jubilee” class locomotives were steam engines, used primarily in Great Britain. They were fast, even by modern standards, with maximum speeds over 100 mph. They did not have a lot of pulling capacity, although they were very fast, so the design didn’t get much use in the US. And, let’s not forget that a jubilee is also a celebration. Our Jubilee is a clean, bright, hard seltzer, flavored with any number of interesting fruit, herbal, and floral combinations. Made with all natural and  gluten free ingredients*, and with low carbohydrates, it’s a celebration in your glass. At 5.4% ABV, it’s not hauling a heavy load, but it’ll go pretty fast.

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.

After a long session on the links, a refreshing beverage can be the perfect way to wrap up the day. But maybe you’re one of those people who don’t want beer, and would prefer a more civilized drink. Perhaps a sweet tea with a bit of lemon? If this sounds good to you, then it’s Tea Time! A fermented malt beverage, nicely sweet and flavored with iced tea and lemonade, just the thing for after your tee time. 6.5% ABV.

According to local legend, there is a ghostly train that you can hear sometimes late at night, running under the full moon on the abandoned rail lines of the north woods. The whistle, when it blows, makes a ghostly sound like “razz wheee”. We’ve created a raspberry wheat ale, light, slightly tart, and sweet, to help put these restless spirits to rest. Or at least give them something to drink when their run is finished. 5.4% ABV, 17 IBU.

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 Cascade hops for aromas of citrus, spice, and blueberry, and Magnum hops for a clean bittering finish. 8.9% ABV, 87 IBU, 10 SRM.
