Awesomeness Posts


Available for the first weekend ever, Hauslers! We have revolutionized the craft beer industry with a brand new offering; an idea that transcends all beer related expectations. Introducing: the Bauhaus Brew Labs Many Pack. It features 3 of each of the core four beers: Wonderstuff Neü Bohemian Pilsner, Stargrazer German Style Schwarzbier, Wagon Party West Cöast Lager, and Sky-Five! Midwest Cöast IPA. More than 6, less than 24. This foundation-shaking, earth-shattering concept is on shelves now at a wide variety of retailers wherever Bauhaus Brew Labs is distributed and henceforth! For the first time ever with Bauhaus Brew Labs, you no longer have to choose.


Amigos! A few months ago we started hatching a plan to host a Night Market at Bauhaus during the gorgeous Minnesota summer months. Our plan was to start things out small, and help this fledgling idea take flight and grow into a bigger venue eventually. To say that the community response has exceeded our expectations is quite an understatement. We are blown away.

We've scrambled a bit and expanded our taproom and patio and built what we think will be an incredibly memorable night celebrating food, beer, and art. No, there's not quite room to accommodate all 18,000 people who have expressed interest, but we've been stretching and we are ready for you if you're coming! We only ask that if you plan to attend that you come hungry, come thirsty, and come ready to support local artists. We have food lined up from Create Dining Studio, Natedogs, Brooks High (can you say beer battered po'boys???) and Potters. Not to mention coffee from Dogwood. On top of that there will be a slew of entertainers roaming the street and artists selling everything you can imagine. This event is truly about them - supporting these crazy craftsmen by buying their art. We want you to drink beer, boogie with the belly dancers, and eat at least a dozen beignets - but above all, celebrate these artists in all of their weird and awesome glory!

Here is a littler preview of what you can expect to see - everything from wax for your 'stache, wearables for your pups, cast bronze jewelry, and paintings of Christopher Walken (obviously)! See you tomorrow night, Hauslers!

  • Physically able of moving heavy (80-170lbs) objects without assistance, and performing all brewery functions
  • Physically able of repeatedly lifting up to 55lbs over a long duration and being on your feet all day

  • Equipment cleaning, maintenance, and repairs
  • Sanitary yeast handling and pitching
  • Monitoring fermentation, beer clarification & dry hopping
  • Transferring and filtering, cellaring, packaging

We're a new brewery, but we are growing fast. This position includes the opportunity for significant advancement and growth as a part of the Bauhaus Family. Please email your resume and cover letter to lydia@bauhausbrewlabs.com

About us:

Bauhaus Brew Labs is a family of musicians, scientists, artists and above all, beer lovers, aiming to reinvigorate the spirit of the family brewery. At Bauhaus, we take a unique look at classic German-inspired beer styles, skewed slightly by a sense of play and adventure. We opened our doors in July of 2014, and launched out four year round Haus beers in September. Our goal with this initial expansion is to get closer to meeting local demand for our core beers while working in new seasonal beers.

To kick off the New Year with a bang, Bauhaus Brew Labs announces the release of their second winter seasonal, the strangely awesome Über Düber.

Loosely based on traditional German bock beer – but hopped up and süper funky – it is a 7% malty, smooth ale with some unconventional oceanic hop additions for an incredibly unique, hoppy experience. Black currant, cherry, and earthy flavors with a straight-up dank aroma, are supported by a rich and full malt profile. This seasonal offering genuinely defies any style category, making it a true Bauhaus original.

Über Düber 22 oz. bomber bottles will join the already available core Bauhaus beer cans in liquor stores starting in late January, but will debut at the St. Paul Winter Beer Dabbler on January 24th. It will also be available on tap at Bauhaus and select restaurants starting the week of January 26th.

Man, what a crazy three weeks it's been. You twin-citizens have proven to be a thirsty bunch of beer drinkers! It has been so awesome seeing you all in the taproom - raising glasses, grabbing growlers, beering it forward, and just hanging in the brewing wünderland you helped us build. We are brewing up a storm over here trying to keep up with your taste for delicious beers, but Lordy! Y'all are thirsty! You cleaned out our 30 barrel supply of wagon party in two weeks! Now we are literally staring at the latest 60 bbl batch waiting for it to finish -- and of course, it's taking it's sweet time. To distract you, we thought we'd share a bit about what's been going on behind the scenes as we continue to dial in the system and the process.

One of the craziest things we've been dealing with is getting the Sky-Five! properly carbonated. Here's a sciencey fact for you - if you can't get it cold, you can't get it carbonated. Some cooling problems early in our brew-volution made it impossible to get that batch cold in the Brite - so we have been forcing CO2 in the kegs one at a time as fast as we can. Of course that introduces variability into the mix that we are not thrilled about. But for us, it's part of the process.  

not-so-patiently-waiting-to-be-filled-with-beerWhen you think about the phrase 'dialing it in' it sounds like a pleasant, make-a-few-tweaks-here-and-there process. In reality it is a blood, sweat, and tears kind of process. Especially as a new brewery feeling like the whole world is on the line. That's where you folks come in - embracing the radness and patiently waiting for the beers to catch up!  We've got all sorts of tricks up our sleeves and lots more shenanigans to unveil in the taproom over the next couple weeks.  It's gonna be awesome.

60 barrels of Sky-Five!, Wonderstuff, Wagon Party, and Stargrazer are finishing up as we speak - all smelling and tasting spectacularly good.  If the beer gods are kind, we will have 240bbls packaged and rolling out by next weekend. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, twin cities!

Next up, the inaugural brew of Schwandtoberfest!  Cheers, amigos!
