We can’t always explain what makes our Beer, Taproom and Beer Garden so special.

They are simply indescribably good.

We hope you get a chance to visit soon and experience them for yourself!

Sean Gray created some amazing artwork for our beer! He captured our motto that good brewing starts with honoring the traditions of brewers who have gone before us. Our beer is brewed using the highest quality water from the historic Glenwood Inglewood wells to produce beer that is classic yet uniquely distinct. Using tried and true brewing practices, we seek to create a new tradition in the Twin Cities that brings friends and families together to share time and beer with one another.

The Beer

Utepils is a Norwegian word that describes the anticipation for the first beer enjoyed in the sunshine with friends after a long, cold winter. We know a thing or two about Utepils in Minnesota, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate sunshine than with our flagship beer, Utepils Pils. It’s brewed with Czech-grown barley and hops; fermented with a Czech lager yeast strain.

The Picture

Sean captured an Utepils moment with five friends raising a glass of delicious pilsner. The stained glass frame features a mix of hops and barley, the core ingredients of beer. The rushing creek and green grass are a nod to our biergarten, and the Siberian iris is always one of the first flowers to bloom in spring. Sunshine. Friends. Beer. Is there anything better?

Even though the bathroom needs a little cleaning, we couldn’t be more excited about finally having a place to officially call home! What began as an idea friends in a pub, has gained quite a few more believers and this is just another milestone in making our dream of starting a brewery in Minneapolis come true. (more…)
