Amigos,

We’re constantly thinking of new ways in which we can get our beautiful brews into your hands and mouths. With that sentiment, we’re super excited to announce two new packaging updates including TALLBOYS of two of our Haus Beers, Wonderstuff Neü Bohemian Pilsner and Sky-Five! Midwest Cöast IPA, and our spankin’ new taproom-only CROWLERS to go.

Tallboys


Baseball is officially back and we’re delivering on a bigger and better craft beer experience at the park for the 2016 season. Last year we joined the craft beer ranks at Target Field alongside the some of Minnesota’s finest craft breweries. This year we are upping the ante by debuting 16oz. tallboys of Wonderstuff Neü Bohemian Pilsner and Sky-Five! Midwest Cöast IPA to the patrons of Target Field. Yep, your math is correct, that’s four extra ounces! That will buy drinkers an extra half-inning before making the trek back to sections 116 (Twins Brews), 126 (Minnesota Brews), and 322 (Minnesota Brews) for their next round.

Beyond the ballpark and just down the block, we’re extending distribution of our tallboys into another Twin Cities cultural hot spot: First Avenue. Starting April 15th, we're introducing 16 oz. cans of Wonderstuff and Sky-Five! to the legendary rock club to support The 4onthefloor's return to the mainroom.

Instead of distributing these tallboy cans in liquor stores alongside the existing 12 oz. 6 packs of these two core beers, we intend on keeping the Wonderstuff / Sky-Five! tallboy experience a special one with limited distribution across certain cultural fixtures.

Crowlers To Go


We unveiled our 750ml crowlers inside our new crowler cooler to thirsty taproom goers last weekend and so far, so awesome. Perfect for when you need 750ml of Bauhaus on the go. All core beers and current seasonal curiosities will be available in crowlboy form in the taproom from this day forward. If this crowler news wasn't enough, we'll also be brewing some tasty taproom-only beers that will be available in these sweet crowlers, starting with our Helles collaboration beer with @fairstatecoop.

We are proud to commemorate the fast approaching return of spring by bringing back our hoppy, crisp, ridiculously refreshing red lager that answers to the name of Copperpop.

With a fresh nose of piney, resinous hops and spicy rye malt, Copperpop is our unique take on the red lagers of Ireland. Delivering an ABV of 5.4% and a moderately hoppy 60 IBUs, this elusive jewel of springtime beer drinking is the perfect companion for St. Patrick’s Day revelry, or just a refreshing and flavorful reminder that patio season is just a few sips away.

Due to crazy demand last year, we have increased production of Copperpop by 400% this year in order to make this tasty treat available in 16-oz. tallboy cans across the Twin Cities, Duluth, Rochester, and Mankato the week of March 14th. It will also be on draft at our taproom and at select establishments around the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

We celebrate this momentous occasion with a spring themed family portrait – in true Bauhausian fashion – and a new video showcasing the process behind finding the perfect Copperpop spokesperson.

Located in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis’ Brew District, Bauhaus Brew Labs is a craft brewery founded in 2012 by a family of musicians, scientists, artists and above all, beer lovers. At its core, Bauhaus is about experiencing the joy of art and craft in everyday life. The brewery takes a unique look at iconic beer styles with a focus on lagers, skewed slightly by a sense of play and adventure. Consistently voted one of the best taprooms in Minnesota, Bauhaus’ beer-hall-inspired taproom is all about welcoming people into the Bauhaus family through inclusivity.

Copperpop Malt and Hop Bill:

Malt - Northwest Pale Malt, Rye, Munich, Carared, Victory, Pale Chocolate

Hops - Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade


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!

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.

The time has finally come. Bauhaus Brew Labs is opening its doors to the public on Friday July 18th, 2014. We've spent countless months, days, and hours building our wunderland, and we can't wait to share it with you all! 

We have been doing our best to put your ideas to work as we build the taproom. One of the ideas we are most excited to see is a massive “Beer It Forward” board that allows drinkers to gift a beer to a friend or random stranger, and also holds daily challenges for free beer. Trivia, karaoke and live music will add to the list of taproom activities, making our Brewing Wünderland truly unlike any other taproom in the Twin Cities.

We will be pouring three of our four core offerings: Wonderstuff Neü Bohemian Pilsner, Wagon Party West Cöast Style Lager, and Stargrazer German Style Schwarzbier. The Sky-Five! Midwest Cöast IPA will debut in the coming weeks.  The beers are tasting exceptional, and each subsequent brew has been better than the last as we continue to dial in the brew process.   

Bauhaus Brew Labs will be open Wednesdays through Fridays from 3 to 11 p.m., and Saturdays from noon to 11 p.m. Local food trucks will also be on-site to compliment the brews.  

#OurHausIsYourHaus

Howdy, Beer Fans!

If you've been following along for the past few weeks, then you know that (1) our Kickstarter project is currently underway (and based on the overwhelming support of our backers, future taproom awesomeness is just around the corner!), and (2) we received our shiny new brewhouse vessels from our equipment manufacturer in Canada, eh. Well, we're happy to report that the brewhouse utility work is nearly complete, and we may be ready to brew actual beer any minute now. Getting to this point has been almost two years in the making, and it's really exciting to be so close to opening day. 

"If you're so close to opening, why don't you announce an official opening date – what the hosen is taking so long?!"  Well friends, despite our best laid plans, we're finding ourselves in the same position that so many new breweries find themselves in: this process always takes longer (and costs more) than you ever imagined.

The reasons for the lengthy startup phase have to do with getting approval to brew from regulators and finishing brewery construction. Alcoholic beverage production is one of the most highly regulated industries imaginable; virtually every level of government (federal, state, local, etc.) has a hand on our schnitzel. You may have heard other new breweries talk about getting their "TTB" number, which is a significant licensing milestone for any new brewery. The TTB is the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau, which is an arm of the U.S. Treasury. As onerous as the process of getting a TTB number can be, it's practically a cakewalk compared to all of the state and local hoops that new breweries have to jump through in order to become fully licensed and operational.

Here at Bauhaus, we have our TTB number, and we just recently got our state brewer's license. Our city taproom and growler licenses are in the works, and we are awaiting final approval from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. "Wait, you guys aren't farmers – you're brewers, right?!" Right you are, observant one. But Minnesota treats breweries in the same manner as it does food processing plants (think meat packing facilities or dairies), and those types of businesses are regulated primarily by the Department of Agriculture. As you would expect, this can be a cumbersome endeavor, and it frequently results in several changes that have to be made to the brewery/taproom floor plan, surface coverings/coatings or other miscellaneous items in order to be in compliance. We recently met with the inspector from the Department of Agriculture, and we're doing our darndest to get the brewery up to snuff.

In the meantime, we're riding herd on our trades to finish up with brewery construction. After all of this is done, we get one final golden ticket from the city: our certificate of occupancy. Once we have this, all of you beautiful beer people can waltz through our doors.

So, hang in there beer fans. We know you're champing at the bit to see what we've been cooking up for you's – it won't be long now!
