If you follow us on social media, chances are you're familiar with the way in which we announce new beers and other significant brewery news- through absolutely absurd videos that delight the senses and show off the many creative talents of our staff.

To celebrate our lightest AND darkest beer in our lineup, one that is particularly and surprisingly refreshing in these steamy summer months, we did the thing we know best and wrote a song about it...and then filmed a 70's sitcom intro at the one and only Pachyderm Studio.

Stargrazer, our jet-black yet extremely light Schwarzbier, is truly one-of-a-kind. Roasty, yet light on the palate, this is one dark beer that's oddly perfect for patio and grilling season. But don't just take our word for it.

3 Years of Awesöme

Jul 11, 2017 – 0 Comments


It’s been 3 beautiful years of making delicious beer, throwing mad parties and building one amazing community, so naturally, we’re celebrating with another party. This Saturday, July 15th from 12pm to 11pm, partygoers can expect an all-day onslaught of amusements, music, food and beer!

TUNES: We’ll have DJ Joe Paris rocking the tables up until the evening hours, and then at 5:30pm we’ll hand it over to the incredibly soulful Nooky Jones followed by the dancey grooves of SOLID GOLD. To close out the night, the crowd can expect a face-melting, rawkus set from none other than Haus Band Viva Knievel.

FUN: Ridiculous amusements, including log rolling, inflatables, adult tricycles and a dunk tank, will keep the vibes going all day. Eats from Wyn65 and Butcher Salt will keep you fueled up throughout the party. We’ll even have a small dog park for the pups to hang out in during the event.

WARES: Alchemist Printing Company will be at the Haus screen printing one-day-and-night-only commemorative tees featuring the 3 Years of Awesome logo and there will be a limited number of 3 Years of Awesome keeper glasses for sale as well. Glasses will go for $10 which will include 1 fill, with subsequent fills priced at $5.


BEER: In addition to all 4 Haus beers being on tap, Hairbanger Belgo-American Pale Ale and Slawhammer Kentucky Common will be flowing along with some special casks, including Sky-Five! with grapefruit zest + cardamom and Sky! Five! with loads of citra hops.

To commemorate this milestone for the Bauhaus family & community, the Bauhaus crew worked with Urban Mountain on this stunningly cool video expressing their gratitude through music and color:

Happy July, everyone! One of our favorite non-profit orgs is celebrating their anniversary this month and with that, we are thrilled to announce the return of Still Kickin Summer Pale Ale. After a wildly successful 2016 partnership, we are reuniting to release the incredibly limited beer across the Twin Cities, with 100% of all profits going directly to Still Kickin.

The 2016 Bauhaus/Still Kickin collaboration was a beautiful thing: two like-minded organizations rooted in communities of our own joined forces to do awesome things for awesome people. We channeled efforts through our charitable arm, On the Haus, a facet of the business built to go beyond the beer to help foster a sense of belonging and kinship through outreach in the community. Still Kickin, a non-profit retail brand that supports a new Still Kickin Hero every month through donation-based workouts and sales of their iconic STILL KICKIN shirts and apparel items, worked alongside Bauhaus to bring the collaboration beer to life. More than $15k was raised to benefit multiple Still Kickin Heros in 2016. The dynamic spirit of this awesome partnership is captured here:

We will once again be releasing a limited-time-only Still Kickin beer across the Twin Cities, with all profits going directly to their cause. Still Kickin Summer Pale Ale features classic pale ale maltiness with a touch of sweetness and a bevy of fresh, tropical fruit and clean citrus notes from Galaxy hops. Well balanced and crisp, this is a beer you can enjoy while also knowing you just helped an awesome person get through something awful.

Starting Tuesday, July 25th, the beer will be available in 16 oz cans at select bottle shops across the Twin Cities for an extremely limited time, with 100% of the profits going to Still Kickin. Additionally, Still Kickin will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary with a Still Kickin Turns 2! party at Bauhaus Brew Labs’ taproom on Monday, July 24th from 6-9pm. The event is open to the public and will feature the debut of the Still Kickin beer, special Still Kickin merch and some exciting announcements.

It’s safe to say that summer has arrived and with that, the return of Hairbanger, our Belgo-Style American Pale Ale! This is a beer that shreds like C.C. Deville. Complex, yet extremely drinkable on a bright, summer day, Hairbanger features toasty malts and a classic Belgian yeast amplified by big, citrusy, tropical American hops. At 5.5% ABV and 50 IBU, it’s a refreshing and approachable Belgian-style beer with a glam metal name. It will make you want to rock out with your hops out; just don't expect it to actually grant you rock god status.

AVAILABLE NOW, Hairbanger 16-oz. tallboy cans will be available across the Twin Cities and other outstate markets, and will also be on draft at Bauhaus’ taproom and at select establishments around the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.



Consistently warm temps call for a refreshing, crushable lager which is exactly why we brought Homeguys Helles back for year two.

Last year we teamed up with Fair State Cooperative to make Homeguys Helles- a straight-up, no-frills example of this Bavarian classic. It was so completely drinkable, we just had to bring it back for this perfect patio weather. Homeguys is a classic Münich-Style Helles lager. A staple of summer in Bavaria, helles (which means "light" in German) is a malt-centric pale lager with low hop bitterness and aroma, and lower ABV. Coming in at 4.7% ABV, this deliciously refreshing pale lager showcases the elegant maltiness of German pilsner malt. With subtle notes of strawberry and honeydew melon in the nose, and a crisp, dry finish, there is some awesome complexity to this easy drinking brew. This one is only on tap at the Haus and in limited quantity- get it while it lasts!

Hang on to your beers and brace yourself for the most epic weekend of the year at The Haus. It's Liquid Zoo time, party peeps.

Two of the Twin Cities’ finest restaurants, Revival and Parlour, will be providing a selection of their signature dishes in the form of pop-up restaurants off the Bauhaus patio and fresh beer will be available at multiple points throughout the taproom, patio and front parking lot.Nightlights' feel-good Pop and 90’s R&B jamz will get the party popping, and the gravity-defying, genre-bending funk and rock superstars Viva Knievel will burn the place down. It will be a dance party that brings a little bit of everything to concert goers. Down in the Valley will also be under the tent in the parking lot slinging vintage, new, and used wax, among other music paraphernalia, all night long.

Copperpop Returns

Mar 09, 2017 – 0 Comments

We’re thrilled to announce the return of Copperpop, our spring Seasonal Curiosity. The annual Copperpop release is exciting not only because of its delicious drinkability, but also because it means that patio season is almost within reach. But even when Minnesota can’t quite decide what to do with itself, Copperpop is still a welcome departure from the heavier beers of winter. Inspired by the red lagers of Ireland, this hoppy, crisp, exceptionally refreshing beer is the perfect treat for the forthcoming observance of St. Patrick’s Day and – let’s face it – virtually every other occasion you can think of. But in order to fully appreciate this brew, we’ve taken the liberty of showing you how to best enjoy a Copperpop with this instructional video:

Clocking in at 5.6% ABV, Copperpop is a drier, hoppier version of the traditional, malt-centric Irish red lagers. A nice spot of German rye malt gives this beer a dry, earthy spice that perfectly compliments the piney, citrusy hop profile.

Copperpop is hitting shelves and taps next week. It’s making an early debut, however, at Keegan’s Irish Pub in Northeast Minneapolis this Friday, March 10th, in the form of $3 pints. Come toast Keegan’s 15th Anniversary, meet the Bauhaus lads and keep your glass while supplies last. Starting on Monday, March 13th, 16-oz. tallboy cans will be available across the Twin Cities and other outstate markets, and will also be on draft at Bauhaus’ taproom and at select establishments around the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.
