As home brewing enthusiasts with a German root on our grandfather’s side, we have been brewing and experimenting in the Lake Superior area since the 1960s! Check out our mash tun reviews if you want to get into this yourself.
We used to sell some of our beers back in the day but have since moved back to be private home brewers while teaching people about this craft online via our website. Here are some of our past seasonals.
Split Rock Bock – Late winter/spring seasonal
This is a hearty, dark mahogany-colored beer, malty with chocolate overtones, brewed using 5 different malts. Lake Superior Split Rock Bock is the festival beer for the annual Fitger’s Bock Fest held in March. O.G. 1.055. Available in 12 oz. bottles.
Marathon Wheat – Early Summer seasonal
Released in June in honor of Duluth’s popular marathon race. A true German Hefeweizen. A refreshing beer, 55% wheat malt, a blend of German hops, and imported German ale yeast. Fruity overtones and cloudy in the traditional Hefeweizen style. O.G. 1.054.
St. Louis Bay IPA – Late Summer seasonal
True to style. Slightly darker than Special Ale (R), this beer is chock full of hops (over 1 pound per barrel). Using a blend of English hops, this brew is dry-hopped using East Kent Golding, our own English ale yeast, and a hint of oak. St. Louis Bay IPA TM is a hop lover’s delight. O.G. 1.058. Available in 12 oz. bottles.
Old Man Winter Warmer – Winter Seasonal
This beer is brewed in late Spring and aged in our refrigerator till mid Fall. This beer is typically released in early November. This beer is a whooping! 10.3% ABV. O.G. 1.101. Available in 12oz. bottles.
High Bridge Root Beer – Brewed year-round
Our rootbeer is brewer tested and kid-approved. An original recipe developed at our brewery. A blend of rootbeer flavors, pure vanilla, local honey, and Lake Superior water, give our root beer a creamy/smooth taste with a hint of wintergreen.
