NE Nectar (Pale Wheat Ale - American)

This is a pale, lighter bodied ale that is smooth, clean and refreshing. Additions of honey give this a sweeter character as it is fermented clean.  It is brewed with 3 different malts and copious amounts of honey added at the end of the batch. Enjoy this year round.  Nectar is a sugar-rich liquid produced in plants called nectaries, either within the flowers with which it attracts pollinating animals, or by extrafloral nectaries, which provide a nutrient source.  Common nectar-consuming pollinators include bees and butterflies, but also moths, hummingbirds, and bats. Minneapolis is thriving with native deciduous plants that are ripe with nectar. Local honey sources are used as ingredients into this craft beer.

Lake Sandy Rye (Rye Beer)

A clean, crisp lager with a yellow hue. This beer is lightly hopped to bring out the pilsner and rye malts. It is refreshing enough for a hot summer day, yet bold enough to be enjoyed year round.

If you search old maps of Minneapolis prior to 1900 you may notice a large and shallow lake named Lake Sandy. This small lake is noted and located just west of Central Avenue along what is now St. Anthony Parkway. At one point in Minneapolis, this was the only lake in the cities park with an ice rink, warming house, and concession stand. Over the years, the lake has disappeared off of maps and can be hard to locate in our well-developed part of town.
