5 Years of Awesöme

Jul 11, 2019 – 0 Comments

This Saturday we celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Looking back at our first few meetings as a family, it's amazing how far we've come in a relatively short span of time. We're aware that the market is quite different today than it was when we opened our doors, and we're incredibly proud to say that we have worked tirelessly to earn and maintain our position as one of Minnesota's top ten volume producing breweries and in the company of some the most talented breweries in the country. We love calling Minneapolis our home and spreading the spirit of gemütlikeit with all of you. With that, the details to our 5 Years of Awesöme party can be found here. We can't wait to celebrate FIVE YEARS OF AWESÖME with each and every one of you.


⚬ Unfiltered Business Keller Pils, 4.7% | 22 IBU - Avail ALL DAY

This fresh, unfiltered German-style pilsner is an homage to the unique German-style lagers that inspired us to launch Bauhaus Brew Labs. We used only the finest German-grown pilsner malt along with Tettnang and Spalt Select hops for a wonderfully flavorful yet easy-drinking summery pilsner that would make any beer drinker hoist a pint and say "prost!"

⚬ Lemonessence Pale Ale, 5.5% | 63 IBU, 1pm tapping

Crafted on our brand new, state-of-the-art pilot system, this American Pale ale is bursting with citrus character. Generous amounts of Mandarina Bavaria hops were tossed into the whirlpool to release distinct tangerine-like notes that complement the lightly toasted malts oh-so-perfectly. The aroma is supercharged thanks to a couple of drops of Lemongrass and Sweet Orange essential oils, and the dry hop is 100% Minnesota-grown Coment.

⚬ Lil' Wispy Lichtenhainer, 3.6% | 0 IBU, 2pm tapping

This low-alcohol, slightly smokey and lightly sour ale is a nod to the camaraderie among breweries in Northeast Minneapolis. We sourced house-malted wheat malt from our friends across the street at Able Brewing + Seedhouse, which was then lightly smoked over oak in the Animales food truck that is now a permanent fixture at Able's taproom. With hints of bready malt, smoke and lactic sourness and literally no hops, this beer is not only unique but surprisingly refreshing!

⚬ Creamsicle Lounge Wizard, 5.2% | 40 IBU, 3pm tapping

We dosed our juicy pale ale with a healthy abundance of orange and vanilla, resulting in a treat that’s reminiscent of our favorite childhood push pops.

⚬ Coffee Stargrazer, 5.0% | 22 IBU - 4pm tapping

Our light and smooth black lager is brought to astral heights after being infused with coffee beans directly from our neighbors at Dogwood Coffee.

Anticipate a wondrous feast of culinary delights from our friends at Butcher Salt, Hoodlum BBQ Co. (owned and operated by our very own brewer Andy Nolan!), and Sweet Gypsy Waffles. On top of that, JonnyPops will be keeping kids of all ages cool on the patio with their frozen treats.

We wouldn't host an anniversary soirée without some ridiculous amusements. Partygoers can expect adult tricycles, inflatables for children and grown humans alike and games from our buds at Missing Pieces Escape Games . We’re talking human- sized foosball (Yousball) and real-life Hungry Hungry Hippos (in this case, Hangry Hangry Hipsters).

Good times are guaranteed at this one, amigos!
