With over 150 breweries now pouring their beer in Minnesota, there’s always something new to try. To keep you up-to-date, we present The Mash-Up—our weekly rundown of new beers and seasonal releases in Minnesota from your favorite local and national breweries. Visit growlermag.com every Friday for the latest or sign up for a weekly email.

Cognac, coffee, rum, and blueberries: just a few of the many rich winter flavors present in beer this week. The holidays are a time of relaxation, celebration, indulgence, and of course, candy and spice as well. All of those are available, whether it’s one of the many seasonal adjuncts currently available at Urban Growler, the hot chocolate stout from Giesenbräu, or the upcoming syrup stout from Forager.

Additional holiday themes include friendship and charity. Revelation/Back Channel, OMNI/56 Brewing, and Imminent/RockFilter are just a few of the collaborative releases this week, plus new beers made for the Science Museum of Minnesota and the American Swedish Institute. Several more local breweries have announced Resilience IPAs, continuing the Sierra Nevada-led movement to help wildfire recovery in California.

 

 

Each week, The Growler’s editorial team highlights five of the most tantalizing new beers hitting taps and store shelves that we’re most excited to try.
