BROOMSTACKER

RED LAGER
Limited Release; Curlers know the game is just a game. Halfway through and at the end, they stack their brooms and have a beer with their opponents. Because there’s nothing like having a good beer while you’re having a good time.

EWALD THE DARK

DUNKELWEIZEN
Limited Time Offer; Things are getting a bit shady for Ewald. He’s been sneaking around quoting lines from Edgar Allen Poe and whistling theme songs from old detective movies. He also brewed a dark variation of his famous Hefeweizen for the first time. It’s so good, we say: embrace the darkness, Ewald.

EWALD THE WILDMAN

DRY HOPPED HEFEWEIZEN
Limited Time Offer; Ewald went wild…at least for him. Inspired by the legendary woodland spirit Greenman, symbol of rebirth, greening of nature, and perhaps a bit of mythological wildness, Ewald the Wildman has brought forth a new greened up hoppy variation of hefeweizen deliciousness.

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.

EWALD THE BRILLIANT

KRYSTALLWEIZEN
Seasonal; 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.

2018 MOMENT

CZECH STYLE DARK LAGER
*Moment 2018 Sold OUT! Look for our 2019 release of a new recipe for Moment in early spring
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.
