Wild Mind Artisan Ales, Minneapolis, MN

I stopped in at Wild Mind Artisan Ales in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Saying I stopped in is really accurate because I got there just minutes before last call.  I wanted to get in one more brewery stop before calling it a night.  The bartender was quite helpful and suggested #4 (see list below) Sol Wild India Pale Ale.  This may have been my first beer with wild yeast.  It was delicious.  I’ve been focusing on varieties other than IPA’s lately because I had been in an IPA rut a while back.  This beer is on point.  I love it.  Very fresh.  Citrusy without being resiny or fruity.  Enough bitterness but not too much.  Great beer.

And how about that tap backdrop.  That’s art.  Beautiful.  I could have sat at the bar for hours just enjoying that and sipping all of their beers.

Clockwerks Brewing, Minneapolis, MN

I stopped in at Clockwerks Brewing in Minneapolis, Minnesota for a beer.  After speaking with the bartender and brewmaster I enjoyed the Alt.  I love the balance of malt and hops.  Best of both worlds.  Chatting with the brewmaster for a bit was a real treat.  There’s a great vibe in this space with lots of local industrial art.  Great place to hang out.  Oh, and I also had a small pour of the Baltic Porter.  Let’s just say that was dessert.  Yum!
