Our specialty beers are limited releases that you may or may not see us brew ever again.
Cold Spring Pilsner
Dry Hopped Pilsner
In 1874, German immigrant Michael Sargl opened his brewery at the site of “Pure Spring Waters” and Cold Spring Brewery was officially in business. Sargl longed to brew beer like he did back in the “old country.” Nearly 100 years later, Cold Spring Brewery became famous for an export style pilsner that would have made Sargl proud. The beer you hold in your hand is a piece of history. A dry-hopped pilsner brewed with Cascade hops, it’s a throwback that honors Sargl and the brewmasters of our past. It is also a testament to the ability of Cold Spring Brewing Co. to stand the test of time.

The year: 1919. The eve of prohibition. Federal agents arrive at Cold Spring Brewery and order all beer be poured into the creek. The brewery owners stand by, watching stoically. Brewmaster Hermanutz walks away with a tear in his eye. He can’t bear to watch. Thankfully, the recipe for the pre-prohibition lager was saved. We recently found it hidden deep in the Brewery’s archives. You hold in your hand a piece of history. A recipe dating back more than 100 years. We’ve named it Brewer’s Tears to honor the brewers who came before us.

Imperial Coffee Porter
Cool Beans is a robust Imperial Coffee Porter brewed with coffee beans from Muggsy's Beans, a local roaster in St. Cloud, Minnesota. These Sumatra beans are cold pressed into a sweet concentrate, then combined with our roasted, chocolate malts producing a big blend you’ll soon be buzzing about. Cool Beans exhibits a rich dark brown color and a bold coffee aroma with a smooth roasted flavor. We call it Cool Beans but you’ll call this cool-laberation warm and fuzzy deliciousness.
