THE DETAILS ARE THE DETAILS. 

Able Seedhouse + Brewery is focused on locally grown seed, grain, malting and brewing. We make beer that comes from special places. It’s our goal to take those amazing ingredients and take advantage of their fullest potential. 

Then we put that potential in a glass.

FIRST LIGHT

AMERICAN IPA

The first light of each day is fresh start. A reset. Whether you’re waking up in the wilderness. Or laboring in a re-purposed light bulb factory in Northeast Minneapolis, creating a new take on the polarizing IPA. Both offer a different perspective. But only one has a friendly handshake's worth of dank hops to satisfy IPA lovers, while being fruity and clean enough to make any beer drinker see the style in a new light.

HOUSE RED

AMERICAN RED ALE

Building a beer is not unlike building a house. It needs a solid foundation. It has to feel familiar and updated. And you have to be able to return to it each day without hating the color, or the broken garage door. Our House is built on a sturdy foundation of berry-hinted hops, as well as biscuit and caramel malts. It takes those familiar American Red Ales and updates them with a hopped finish. And no, this beer doesn’t have a garage door. It’s a beer.

BLK WLF

STOUT

Black wolves were once thought to be their own unique species. Then a smart person declared them variants of red wolves. Until an even smarter person determined they're actually a gray wolf. Our very own BLK WLF perpetuates the confusion. Dry like an Irish stout. Hoppy like an American stout. Nutty like an oatmeal stout. Creamy like a milk stout. What really is a black wolf?

FOUR CORDS

OLD ALE

It takes roughly four cords of wood to heat a Minnesota home for the winter, if you’re a Renaissance man bucking the modern heating system. But it’s gonna take more than that to heat yourself. You’re gonna need a hearty, bready, slightly fruity, totally malty 7.9% Old Ale to warm your northern soul. Not to mention a good pair of long johns to wear for six months straight.

PROPERS

PUB ALE

Sure, you may laugh to yourself when your friend travels to England and comes back stateside calling her apartment a "flat". Saying "cheers" instead of "thanks". Asking if you want to "grab a pint." But maybe she just wants to go back, if only in her head. Back to the land of pubs properly pouring smooth, toasty, caramel-noted ales. Though it might be easier if she just drank a glass of this.

SUPERGIANT

GOLDEN ALE

Here we are, on a "mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam," as Carl Sagan famously put it. And if we're going to hurtle through space on this rock, an incomprehensible distance from the nearest Supergiant star, making beer from things that miraculously grow from the ground, we're going to make it count. This beer is all of us—bright, golden, slightly sweet, and amused by existence.

COSMIC FRUIT

CITRUS PALE ALE

The night sky is cosmic. Earth is cosmic. We are cosmic. The peels of sweet oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, and lemons are cosmic. Chinook, Centennial, and El Dorado hops? Cosmic. Introducing the most cosmic pale ale in the ever-expanding universe. Pairs well with looking up.

SEEDED

RYE BROWN ALE

The seed was planted 3 years ago.  Long before Seeded.  Instead of getting rye from a grain train coming from Who Knows Where, we wanted that rye to come from our growers here in Minnesota.  3 years, over 100 batches of beer, and countless test batches of rye malt later,  Seeded was born.  The Able rye malt features homespun honey notes to complement the nutty character of the rest.  While the dual hop varieties and caraway seeds round out the beer's warm earthiness.  This special rye brown ale has come a long way for a beer that never had far to travel.

BIG BLK WLF


Imperial Stout

Because we have such pride in our BLK WLF stout, we decided to use it as inspiration for an imperial stout.  To make this beast, we took every ingredient from the original BLK WLF stout and packed the mash tun to the brim.  The result is a beer bursting with dark cocoa, stone fruit, caramel, and roasted coffee.  

Released every year on our anniversary in November.
Bourbon barrel aged also available in taproom.
