Brewer's Tears


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.

ABV: 4.7% / IBU: 45

Best paired with chicken salad, fettuccine in cream-based sauce, fish, white rice, garlic potatoes and buttered rolls.

Cool Beans

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.

ABV: 9.1% / IBU: 42

COLOR: Rich dark brown

MALTS: Brown Malt, Roast Barley, Chocolate Malt

Roasted or smoked food including barbecue, sausages and blackened fish. Also pairs well with chocolate peanut butter cookies or coconut bars.
