Hop Lab from Bank Brewing of Hendricks, MN is a perfect choice for the hop lover. It is a dry hopped IPA with Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe hops. This is a great beer so get it now while it’s fresh (my bottle was dated 12/1)!
Beanz Coffee Stout from the Wooden Legs Brewing Company is a great choice for stout and coffee fans. It uses coffee from local coffee roaster Kool Beans Coffee. This beer is brewer Seth Koch’s “tiramisu” stout with intense coffee aroma and taste. The roasty malt backbone in this beer is complemented by chocolate and vanilla notes. An extensive review of Beanz can be found here.
Grab these beers while they are fresh and drink local. Merry Christmas!
