We're excited to announce the return of Copperpop, the Seasonal Curiosity that signals the return of spring. Inspired by the red lagers of the Emerald Isle, this brew is a drier, hoppier version of the traditional, malt-centric Irish red lagers (5.6% ABV | 60 IBUs). This year’s Copperpop takes the notion of refreshing to new heights - it really is the only pop you’ll need for our soon-to-be patio weather! If you're not into hyperlinks, maybe this will suit you:

Starting on Monday, March 5th, 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. If you'd like a sample, just say the word and we'll get some to you!

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.

Über Düber Imperial Sparkling Ale is making its glorious return this January in the form of all-new 16 oz. cans. To celebrate the swap from 750 mL bottles to tallboy cans, we paid homage to the greatest swap in cinematic history. We call this Raiders of the Lost Beer:

Inspired by the sparkling ales of Australia, Über Düber Imperial Sparkling Ale is an effervescent, golden daydream - this beer boasts an array of hop varieties that take the notion of vacation-in-a-glass to a whole new level. Aussie hop cultivars give off a luxurious tropical bouquet of pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, and mandarin orange. With a medium body and a clean, dry finish, this imperial-strength ale is a super düber midwinter treat. 8.0% ABV | 65 IBU

Starting Monday, January 15th, Über Düber will be available at select stores throughout Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, and on tap at fine bars & restaurants as well as at Bauhaus' Northeast Minneapolis taproom.



Guten Tag, Hauslers!

It's a good week in the world of Bauhaus Brew Labs, as our Winterloper Baltic Porter is making its glorious return this week. And let us say, it’s a Christmas miracle because this smooth and silky brew is now available in 16 oz. tallboy cans!

Based on traditional beers from countries near the Baltic Sea, Winterloper is derived from English porters but influenced by Russian Imperial Stouts. It serves a rich blend of malt flavors expressing caramel and dried fruit with a smooth, roasty finish. A strong, jet-black lager beer that’s just as easy and refreshing to drink as any of our brews, Winterloper is truly the perfect blanket to throw on as we welcome hibernation season (8.0% ABV | 35 IBU).


These festively wrapped 16 oz. 4-packs are perfect for gift-giving and will be available at select stores throughout Minnesota and Western Wisconsin as well as on tap at fine bars and restaurants and Bauhaus' Northeast Minneapolis taproom. From our weird family to you and yours, we hope y’all are as thrilled about these new cans as we are!

Alongside the return of Winterloper, we’re kicking off the holidays with our 4th Annual Made by Hands Holiday Extra-Vaganza on Saturday, November 25th from 12pm to 6pm. Beer lovers and holiday shoppers alike can scope out unique gifts, support local artists and sip some delicious brews all at once. A heated tent will be set up on our spacious patio to allow for prime shopping and sipping.

From our weird family to yours, we hope you have a wonderful and safe Holiday season.

Guten Tag, Amigos!

It's the splendor of 70 degree weather in October that makes us incredibly happy to be in this city of ours amongst all you beautiful beer drinkers. What makes us even happier is the fact that we get share some exciting expansion news. Since opening our doors in July 2014, we have been in a constant state of expansion. Working feverishly to meet the demands of off- and on-premise retail partners as well as nurturing our crazy-busy taproom business, increasing production capacity has become second nature to us. After much planning, it's our pleasure to share the details of our latest undertaking.

Bauhaus North

Just up 35W, a new Fridley-based warehouse, unofficially dubbed “Bauhaus North,” is up and running, serving as our primary shipping, receiving and distribution point. At a voluminous 11,000 square feet (larger than our Northeast Minneapolis facility), the warehouse boasts 2,500 square feet of cold storage as well as a substantial amount of bulk raw materials storage. The warehouse also serves as homebase to the our newest (robotic) family member: a semi-automated packaging system for Bauhaus’ hot-selling 12-packs.

Bauhaus Northeast

The new Fridley warehouse is part of an even greater plan to grow the production capacity at our Northeast Minneapolis facility. By relocating a substantial amount of cold and dry storage to Bauhaus North, we're now able to add more fermentation and packaging tanks to our Minneapolis production center. Y'all sling a lot of beer. Current production capacity is around 13,000 barrels per year, and the brewery is on pace to produce just over 10,000 barrels in 2017. With the additional square footage resulting from this latest expansion, we will be adding three more 120-barrel fermenters and one additional 120-barrel packaging tank in early 2018, which will increase overall production capacity to around 20,000 barrels per year. Eventually, we plan to add several 240-barrel tanks to increase overall production capacity to around 30,000 barrels per year (!).

Taproom

Don't think that the party palace that is our taproom will get the short end of the stick - our taproom will also undergo changes as part of this latest expansion. We are aiming to elevate the look and feel of the space to reflect our dual regard for design and functionality. While we love our taproom, we weren’t able to fully realize our vision for it when we did our initial build-out. It’s pretty amazing to get a second bite at that apple, and we’re thrilled that this renovation will really tie the taproom into the Bauhaus brand as it was originally intended.

Taproom-goers can expect to see new finishes and lighting for the bar, a new and improved tap configuration as well as revamped menu signage that not only coheres more with the Bauhaus brand but also increases service efficiency. Our planned taproom renovations are designed in large part to improve the overall customer experience in the taproom. To this end, we will be integrating table service so that Haus guests can focus more on having a great time instead of waiting in line for a pint. Taproom renovations are expected to be done just in time for the 2018 Super Bowl.

Thanks for making this a reality, Hauslers. We owe it all to you.

Prost,

The Bauhaus Family

Last week we stumbled across something that appeared to be...otherworldly.


Signs of alien activity followed...


And finally, on the morning of Monday, October 2nd, an official sighting took place.


After much deliberation, we've spoken to the experts, and we think we FINALLY know what we're dealing with. CROP CIRCUS DOUBLE IPA.


Crop Circus Double IPA features a huge, juicy hop profile typical of New England-style IPAs, but without the pulpy haze. Instead of a bracing hop bitterness, this beer opts to focus on smooth hop flavors and aromas brimming with tropical fruit and fresh citrus that result from the use of multiple cutting edge (alien?) hop technologies, including cryogenically separated hop resins and aromatic oils (aka "cryo hops"). While this hefty DIPA clocks in at a 8.4%, it goes down exceptionally smooth and finishes with only a touch of lingering hop bitterness. To put it succinctly, it's out of this world. Get it before it leaves the planet!
