Our sales ninja Drew as been venturing to the great beer-guzzling state of Wisconsin for some time and with great skill and fortitude, we're thrilled to report that Bauhaus is on lock in a handful of clutch Hudson establishments. In good time, we'll be branching out beyond just Hudson, but for now, you can find us at any of these fine destinations just across the river:

  • Stone Tap
  • Barker's
  • The Nova Restaurant & Wine Bar
  • Postmarke Grille
  • Historic Casanova Liquor
  • Postmarke Grille
  • Chicone's Liquor Mark
  • Hudson Liquor

Not only are we permanently bringing the party to the places above, but we're kicking things off with a lineup of rad happenings this weekend in Wisco:

Oktoberfest season has arrived and for the third year in a row, we are releasing our Bavarian-style festbier, Schwandtoberfest. We have to say, it makes us giddy seeing people clamoring for this beer- one that was born in our backyard years ago. At 5.7% ABV and 27 IBUs, Schwandtoberfest is the perfect marriage between rich, toasty malt and crisp hop bitterness. With a floral hop aroma of tangerine and orange blossom imparted by Mandarina Bavaria hops and a deep amber orange pour, this beer will have you busting out your steins and dusting off your lederhosen.

Like every Bauhaus brew, Schwandtoberfest is an incredibly food-friendly beer that pairs exceptionally well with spicy fair and of course, brats and pretzels.

Schwandtoberfest will be available in 16-oz. tallboy cans across the Twin Cities and on tap at select establishments starting Monday, August 22nd. Beer drinkers can also grab a fresh pint in the taproom and get a glimpse of Gustav, the official Schwandtoberfest mascot. Gustav and the rest of the Bauhaus crew make an appearance in the lastest promotional video, produced by the creative minds between Bauhaus and Urban Mountain.

To cap fest season off properly, Bauhaus will be throwing the Third Annual Schwandtoberfest celebration on Saturday, October 1st. With multiple beer tents and food vendors, a handful of stellar musical acts and a bevy of special casked beers, it promises to be the most outrageous stein-hoisting day of eating, drinking, singing and dancing yet. Tickets include entry to the fest as well as a commemorative stein and three beer fills, and can be purchased here.

Hey y'all! We are ECSTATIC to announce the unveiling of a unique, Southern-inspired collaboration beer with Revival restaurant – a truly special beer that will make its debut at Revival’s new US Bank Stadium location as well as their brick-and-mortar restaurants in coming weeks. The specialty brew is a pre-prohibition Kentucky Common Style Ale that goes by the name of Slawhammer.

For those of you who don't know, we pride ourselves on brewing beers that pair well with food, and Slawhammer is no exception. Brewed specifically to temper the heat of Revival’s fiery Tennessee hot chicken, Slawhammer is a bit like a cream ale but with a little more malty soulfulness; it’s an easy-drinking brew with just a touch of hoppy citrus and black tea in the finish. Clocking in at 4.8% ABV and a mild 25 IBUs, it's the perfect thirst quencher for Revival's spectacular Southern fare, and let’s be honest, these 16-oz. stunners are going to look right nice in the hands of stadium-goers.

Brewing Slawhammer brought head brewer and Bauhaus Brew Labs President Matt Schwandt back to the days he spent in the South. “When I lived in Nashville, I learned that there are really only two beverage options for Tennessee hot chicken: sweet tea or a cold beer. So we figured, why not marry those ideas?” Vice President Lydia Haines explains, “While it’s not a sweet beer, Slawhammer has that amber iced tea color and some black tea notes from the finishing hops.”

“We are thrilled about the partnership,” says Revival Co-Owner Nick Rancone. “Revival is all about tradition and modernity, and that is the same way we view Bauhaus. It's so important to align with people that you respect and adore, and share values with, and it was most excellent that this collaboration came to fruition in the way that it did. We couldn't have asked for a better partner.”

Starting August 10th, Slawhammer will be available in 16-oz. tallboy cans at the Revival US Bank Stadium location, and on draft at Revival’s brick-and-mortar locations in both Minneapolis and St. Paul and at their sister restaurant, Corner Table.
