Twin Cities Delivery-5 Beers!

We could not be more excited for our first Twin Cities Delivery of 2019! We're bringing a new Junkyard record- FIVE different beers around the Metro this Friday 1/4.

Leading the charge is PROVERBIAL SUBSTANCE, a dry-hopped sour ale conditioned on hundreds of pounds of peach, apricot, cherry, guava, and strawberry, then partnered with a live, in-house sour culture and brettanomyces. This beer has taken us 6 months to complete, and we debuted it as our first release of 2019. It's wild, funky, complex, and one of our best mixed fermentation beers we've ever created. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind sour that celebrates Junkyard's 2018 year in brewing. 1 case (32 cans) per store.

DDH GREEN TERRAIN NE IPA 
An amazing hop trio of Azacca, Mosaic, and Calypso team up in our latest IPA, creating a green and grassy field of flavor for your tastebuds to play on. Soft and sweet floral aromas land first, with an overt kick of tropical fruits and citrus. Strong tropical flavors, especially pineapple emerge alongside zesty orange rind with notes of orchard fruit and pine throughout. Its finish is an earthy, herbaceous bitterness that lingers long on the palette. 6.7% ABV 20 IBU

FAR OUT STOUT BLACK WALNUT 
A robust, extra-stout style beer with an aroma of chocolate-covered nuts, dark cherry, and sweet caramel. It has an earthy, roasted bitterness paired with hints of dark fruit and an overall flavor of a liquified walnut brownie! 8.3% ABV 40 IBU

CASHMERE SKY NE IPA w/ VANILLA 
This new IPA was hopped and dry hopped with Cashmere and Bravo, bringing complex aromas of citrus & tropical fruit to the front, paired with smooth vanilla and light floral undertones. 
Cashmere is a dual purpose stunner known for evoking hints of coconut, melon, and tangerine alongside super smooth bitterness. Together, these hops showcase flavors of lemon, lime, orange & stone fruit and exhibit a subtle herbal bouquet that, when mixed with creamy vanilla, may bring out a faint taste of bubble gum! 6% ABV 30 IBU

PONCHO GODDESS CHOCOLATE STOUT
This stout is a Junkyard favorite! Brewed with cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, and lactose, it's rich, decadent, creamy, and like drinking from a magical chocolate fountain. The flavor isn't sweet like chocolate syrup, but more dark and bitter, finishing dry and nutty like a gourmet chocolate candy. 5.8% ABV 24 IBU

For over 6 months, this specialty, dry-hopped sour ale was conditioned on hundreds of pounds of peach, apricot, cherry, guava, and strawberry puree and then partnered with a live, in-house sour culture and brettanomyces.

The result? Big fruit flavors emerge right out of the gate on the nose and palate as the farmhouse funk leads you through a tart and twangy journey to a dry finish. It's wild, funky, complex, and one of our best mixed fermentation beers ever created.

Live Music: Lonesome Dan Kase

About Lonesome Dan Kase:

“The music he plays hasn’t been heard (at least by most) in 70 years. It is captivating music, full of raw and throaty vocals, and intense finger -picking guitar work. It’s foot-stompin’...music of a bygone era: nostalgic music that takes you back even if you’ve never been there before.”
- James Stambaugh, The Northern Light

“The finger-picking guitar wiz channels the likes of Robert Lockwood Jr., Leadbelly and Son House..."
- Chris Riemenschneider, Minneapolis Star Tribune- January 23, 2009

“There’s something special about a traditionalist such as Lonesome Dan Kase. Part originator, part historian, this breed provides a direct link to the early days of this music that plays an important but unsung role in today’s popular music...”
- John Ziegler, Duluth News Tribune- July 16 2009

Can Release: Big Manchild- West Coast Double IPA

We're releasing cans of Big Manchild West Coast Style DIPA!

For all you whiners out there who don't want fruit, desserts, or haze in their beer, this one's for you!

This beer is BIIIGG. We're talking IBU chart topping status. Bittered with Columbus CO2, brewed with Azacca and featured Exp. Hop #06297 from Hopsteiner, and then dry hopped with Apollo, Ekuanot, and another dose of Exp. #06297, this dude packs a punch. Soft resins and essential oils extracted from the Columbus hop make way for a robust, resinous kick that is counterbalanced with strong citrus and tropical fruit. You may find aromas of orange, vanilla, and berry in this complex blend that lends to flavors of lime, grapefruit, and pine with plenty of herbal notes. So there.

Welcome to Scout Camp...
Where the fire is roaring and the beer is s'moreing!
Aromas of marshmallow fluff, milk chocolate, maple, and faint graham crumbles come forward, spearheading an initial flavor wave of a fudge-covered graham cracker followed by dark cocoa and golden brown marshmallow.

Beer & Charcuterie Dinner
Dec
17
6:00 PM18:00

Beer & Charcuterie Dinner

If you like beer and you like charcuterie, then you're going to love this Beer Dinner! (Say "shar-cue-ter-ee"; it means 'cured meats')

What is "charcuterie"? It's the branch of cooking that involves prepared meat products, and for this beer dinner we are talking about the fancier stuff, like pâté, terrine, salami, prosciutto, coppa, mortadella, 'nduja, and pancetta, to name just a few. (And if you only recognize a couple of those names, you should definitely get a ticket and come learn about the rest of them!) In a traditional sense, charcuterie was the various ways in which meat was preserved before the advent of refrigeration, often involving some sort of fermentation process with preservative salts and spices. Today, people love charcuterie for the unique, delicious flavors resulting from that preservation process!

This beer dinner will feature Beer & Charcuterie pairings selected by Chef Ryan Nitschke from Luna and Allison Slavik of Junkyard Brewing Co. Each person will get four 1/2 pint tulips of beer paired with meats from Luna, plus crackers and a few tasty snacks and sauces selected by Chef Ryan. Additionally, Ryan and Allison will discuss the meats, the beers, and why they taste so good together.

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, Dec. 11th at 7PM.
We are limiting this event to 38 tickets, so get yours quickly!
