For our new summer seasonal, we wanted to dress up an American Pale Ale. Hairbanger has all the refreshing, tropical hoppiness you'd want in a modern APA, but we've fermented this beer with a classic Belgian yeast strain that gives it an awesomely complex fruitiness. It's basically the outdoor concert beer we've all been dreaming about. Available starting Wednesday June 10th in the taproom, at select draft accounts, and in 4 packs of 16 oz bombers at local bottle shops! So turn it up, raise a fist, and get down with this delicious summer seasonal.

To commemorate the official Hairbanger release on June 13th, Bauhaus will celebrate all day in the taproom and continue to rock all night with a heavy metal after party at a secret location, featuring members of the Bauhaus family and staff. To amplify the anticipation, Bauhaus teamed up with Urban Mountain to create a promo video featuring the most epic of hairbangs, inspired by everyone's favorite Belgian-American crossover, Jean Claude Van Damme.


MN Craft Beer Week is coming up, and we are thrilled to be dining with Cocina Del Barrio and a few of our favorite breweries in town for a night of collaborative cuisine and Minnesota beer. Beers from Bauhaus, Fulton, Indeed, Surly, and Summit will be paired with a dish created by a powerhaus chef from Barrio. It's going down at 6:30pm May 4, 2015 at Cocina del Barrio (5036 France Ave S., Edina, MN). Five courses for $55 (tax and gratuity not included). Space is limited, so RSVP now! Tickets can be purchased by calling Tyler Lineburg at 952.920.1860 or e-mailing tlineburg@barriorequila.com.

Spring arrived...and then left, but we hear its coming back soon. We have kicked off our next round of seasonal curiosities with a beer to celebrate Minnesota's impending release from winter's icy grasp. With hibernation coming to an end, we have launched a hoppy, crisp, ridiculously refreshing take on a Red Lager called Copperpop.

Copperpop (5.6% ABV and 60 IBU) is a red lager brewed with spicy rye malt and hopped up with loads of piney, resinous Columbus, Ahtanum, Rakau, Cascade and Amarillo hops. It's the X on the treasure map of hoppy lagers, and you won't have to go through One-Eyed Willy's boobie traps to find it.

Copperpop is being served on draft at the taproom and various establishments around the Twin Cities.

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.
