Keeping It Breezy at Bauhaus
Apr 19, 2020 – 0 Comments
Greetings from our Haus to yours!
We hope everybody is safe and as healthy as possible at this wild moment in time. At Bauhaus, we're doing our best to stay afloat and keep things as easy-going and fun as possible. We need it, and we think everyone could benefit from some simple joys and laughs as well. To that end, we released our Breezebox Summer Mixed Pack, keeping it light and easy as we hunker down and head into warmer temps.
In addition to Lounge Wizard Juicy Pale Ale, our Breezebox includes THREE new and exclusive flavor-forward beers that as crisp as they are refreshing: Zeñata Mexican Amber Lager, Guavatron Pink Guava Gose and Unfiltered Business Keller Pils. Each of these beers are available in crowler/growler form through our taproom drive-thru and delivery service as well.
We know virtual hangouts are up by about a thousand percent, and that's no different across our Bauhaus family. Each Breezebox can design just so happens to feature a tropical Minnesota landscape, complete with a ridiculous water sport in each design. To add a little bit of fun to your next Zoom hangout, y'all can escape to these settings by downloading the designs to use as virtual backdrops on Zoom. Here's how we've been shooting the breeze and making the best of our time at home:
Additionally, a “Minneapolis Vice” t-shirt has been released to support the launch as well - it’s hard to put one of these colorful tees on and not feel a little mood boost!
ALL THE BEER DETAILS:
ZEÑATA MEXICAN AMBER LAGER (4.3% ABV, 12 IBU)
Zeñata is a crisp, refreshing amber lager (a la Dos Equis Amber and Negra Modelo) begging for a wedge of lime. It's brewed with toasty Vienna malt and a significant amount of corn that imparts lighter body and flavor. With the addition of light caramel malt and a small portion of roasted black malt, this low-ABV refresher is not only thirst quenching, but also provides some malt complexity that keeps it interesting. Look for subtle notes of toast and caramel with just enough hop bitterness to provide balance. Finishes crisp and dry.
- Malts: Vienna, Cara 20, Blackprinz
- Adjuncts: Corn
- Bittering Hops: Tettnang
- Yeast: Haus Lager (34/70)
GUAVATRON PINK GUAVA GOSE (4.9% ABV, 5 IBU)
Guavatron is a tart wheat ale infused with pink guava, featuring a pleasant lactic tartness with well-balanced salinity and fruit character. We use coriander in this brew to impart a unique citrus character that compliments the fruity sweetness derived from pink guava fruit. The end result is a refreshing, fruity wheat ale with strong guava aromatics, moderate lactic sourness, slight salinity, and a crisp, dry finish.
- Malts: Pilsner, Wheat
- Bittering Hops: Huell Melon
- Yeast: Haus Ale (London Ale III)
UNFILTERED BUSINESS KELLER PILS (4.7% ABV, 22 IBU)
Unfiltered Business is a tried-and-true keller version of a traditional German pilsner. Originally released as Bauhaus’ 5th Anniversary beer, we felt that this brew was too good to not brew again. Unfiltered Business pours a slightly hazy pale straw color with aromas of rich German pilsner malt and spicy/floral German hops. This beer has a little more yeast character due to the fact that it isn’t filtered, which manifests in a slight fruitiness that is complimented by the slightly fruity aroma of German Saphir (pronounced “suh-FEER”) hops. Crisp, dry, and absolutely delightful with a slight lingering hop bitterness in the finish.
- Malts: Barke Pils, Carafoam
- Bittering Hops: Magnum
- Flavor Hops: Tettnang
- Aroma Hops: Saphir
- Yeast: Haus Lager (34/70)
