Lumpy’s Lager ABV – IBU 18, ABV 5.5%
Minnesota’s own Tim “Lumpy” Herron has proven he’s an everyman, bringing fan’s enthusiasm & a focus on fun to the game of golf. His tribute lager matches his personality, combining simple ingredients into an approachable American original. Lumpy’s Lager pairs perfectly with an eagle or a birdie & even tastes great with a bogey.
A Day at the Peach Kettle Sour – 5 IBU, 4.5% ABV
This kettle soured ale is brewed with fresh peach & ginger adding to its light and tart profile. The effervescence and low IBU makes this brew a perfect year round sour.
Minnehahop- 63 IBU, 6.0% ABV
Minnehahop IPA is appealing for both hop heads and light IPA drinkers alike. Fresh and citrusy aromas of pineapple, lemon/lime, passion fruit & mango finishing with just a touch of caramel sweetness, like a dusting of toasted coconut. Quenching and bright.
Excelsior Golden Ale – 20 IBU, 5.2% ABV
After several stabs at developing a recipe they liked, Excelsior’s brewers finally found what they were looking for; a golden ale bold enough to provide a counterpoint to our flagship beer, Big Island Blond. Select hop varieties and brewing techniques produce an ale that is packed with flavor but not very bitter. Minnehaha Golden Ale combines the refreshment of lager with the hoppier, more citrusy qualities of ale. A pint worth coming back to!
Maibock – 35 IBU, 6.7% ABV
Maibock is the lightest of the bock beers, with ours featuring a medium body, is unfiltered and has a mild toasty aroma. We brewed this in celebration for our Maifest on May 11th and May 12th. Customarily served in spring to celebrate the great winter thaw, lake lovers celebrate the Ice Out!
Scofflaw Russian Imperial Stout- 75 IBU, 10.6% ABV
This beer named after the Prohibition term for someone who drank illegally (scoffing the law) has a deep rich roast flavor, a bit dry and sure to please. Notes of dark fruit including plum, roasted nuts, and a full body.
Mr. Jimmy’s – IBU, 7.5% ABV
In honor of Jimmy Hutmaker, Excelsior’s legendary ambassador, we made a traditional Baltic porter, conditioned on cherry wood. Brewed with licorice root, this beer features a pleasant sweetness, blending perfectly with the wood flavor, making this a perfect year round beer.
