Personally and professionally, we are huge fans of Midwestern beers, and DESTIHL is the proof that we are right!”
From Fort Collins:
Here’s a peek at some great product placement. Yes that’s Susan Sarandon and Melissa McCarthy drinking an Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. The movie comes out July 2nd so I’m sure we’ll see more screen caps soon.
Our Texas Common is a red amber beer that holds a nice creamy head with an aroma full of tropical fruit. The flavor starts with a pleasant combination of fruit and malt and then goes to a long, dry bitter with just a hint of malt hanging on all the way.
We used only one hop variety in this beer: Mosaic. This is a fairly new hop varietal, released in 2012, and is known for its distinct but complex tropical and citrus aroma and flavor. The tropical aspects come through well in our Texas Common.
As always, you can find Icon in four packs at the grocery store and on tap at bars and restaurants around town. Learn more about Icon Green here.
Specifically designed to operate with a small two-barrel system, Sisyphus Brewing will feature a constantly rotating selection or beers of various styles. With no plans to wholesale or offer growler sales, the Sisyphus Brewing taproom will be the only place to sample its beers.
Each week the taproom will feature new beers in a variety of styles as part of the brewery’s goal to educate beer drinkers about the wide variety of styles, ingredients and techniques involved in craft beer. In addition to the 100 seat taproom, the next phase of Sisyphus Brewing’s evolution will include a 100 seat theater that will host comedy and live music.
“We are so excited that our opening date is nearly upon us,” said Sisyphus Brewing founder Samuel Harriman. “We are so inspired by the great variety of beers out there, and we can’t wait to share the best of what is out there with our customers. Our goal at Sisyphus Brewing is to take the experience we had touring the best taprooms in the country and replicate it under our roof. We think beer is a community experience, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Minnesota beer community.”
The presence of the Sisyphus Brewing taproom will be advertised by a mural on the exterior wall collaboratively created by two of the biggest names in Minnesota beer art, Adam Turman and Josh “Jawsh” Lemke. The mural will face the I-94/I-394 interchange, making it visible to literally thousands of commuters every day.
The Sisyphus Brewing Taproom will initially be open every Friday and , with additional days to follow.
