KRYSTALLWEIZEN
Seasonal and currently unavailable, look for it next Spring! We filter our classic Hefeweizen recipe to produce a Krystallweizen with color and taste that are both, well, brilliant. Features mild notes of banana and clove with vibrant mouthfeel and a refreshing, juicy finish. It’s Ewald the Golden’s refined brother. We sense some sibling rivalry coming on.

wirth-it-glass

TOTALLY WIRTH IT

DRY IRISH STOUT
Totally Wirth It: Creamy dry Irish stout that is light on body, rich in the taste served only in the Utepils Fernweh Taproom on nitrogen as a “house” beer.

Name in honor of Theodore Wirth who early in the 1900’s was superintendent of the Minneapolis Park system. His vision and drive to set aside a large, varied and connected areas proved totally worth it as Mpls has one of the best city park systems in the world with renowned access to the public. The greatest park in the system is named after him and is our neighbor…it’s our “home” park.

2018 MOMENT

CZECH STYLE DARK LAGER
*Moment 2018 Now Available only in cans at your local retailer
2018 Moment is very dark, almost black in the glass, but it has a surprisingly light body. It’s brewed with Czech hops, which give it a nice balance and aroma. The malt flavor comes through with suggestions of toasted bread, chocolate and dark fruit.

Now Utepils is offering beer drinkers the chance to make their 2018 “moment” a true Utepils Moment with their first annual limited-edition Moment beer. “We take a yearly beer tasting trip to Europe (affectionately known as ‘Beer Trippin’’) in the fall, and we use that trip to find an idea or recipe to identify our Moment beer for the following spring,” explains Utepils founder and owner Dan Justesen. “These trips give us a chance to further appreciate the European traditions and styles of beer. Then we bring an idea or a flavor home and offer a fresh, local take on it,” says Justesen. “Last year we went to the Czech Republic and visited a dozen or more breweries.” The result of that trip is 2018’s Moment, a Czech-style dark lager.

SPRINGBOK

HELLER BOCK
It’s worth surviving a long, cold winter if you get to drink this in the spring. Springbok represents the gleeful leap from winter dreariness to spring renewal. It has all the depth and strength of a wintry lager, balanced with enough lightness to put a spring in your step.
