North Loop, MPLS, MN – August 10th, 2017 - Fals

e Pattern Pale Ale, an oat based pale ale originally named TOATS, will officially hit liquor store shelves Wednesday, August 16! Toats, which was involuntarily retired back in February, was then re-calibrated in our Deviation Series while we also worked ona new name and new look.

The release of False Pattern in 4-packs of tallboy cans marks our 4th can release and the first packaged product to PROUDLY display our declaration of independence via The Brewers Association’s Seal of Independence. Cans will be available in very limited quantities throughout the metro area.

In addition to the can release, we will be celebrating the arrival of False Pattern in our taproom on Saturday, August 19th. That day will also mark the arrival of another beer graduating from our Deviation Series – Deviation 007, an American Japanese style premium lager. Christened “Supra Deluxe”, this delicious lager will be available at the taproom and select bars and restaurants. We will have 200 crowlers of each available for purchase beginning at noon that day. You can RSVP to the party HERE.

False Pattern is a soft, very hazy pale ale brewed with a grip of oat malt and juicy hops. Why oats? According to our Head Brewer Keigan Knee, “Brewing with a high amount of malted oats not only makes for a very soft silky mouthfeel in the finished beer and help create an epic haze, oat derived sugars can also impart more complex flavors such as toasted granola, brown sugar, honey and even butterscotch. Which is a nice flavor change up from the standard barley based beers.”  And because of the ability of our mash filter, we are able to use a much higher percentage of oats without sacrificing our efficiency. To complement the malt bill, False Pattern is heavily hopped with Centennial and Mosaic hops to provide the beer a juicy tropical hop profile with very low bitterness. The end result is a pillowy soft, super smooth aromatic mouth watering pale ale that clocks in at 5.5 % ABV.


Early this year we were surprised to receive a letter from wine giant EJ Gallo. And while this article and the Instagram post below can provide you the details, the end result was that we had to kill TOATS because we have not a bagillion dollars. And while it was toats tough to see TOATS go, we used it as an opportunity to evolve our oat-based pale ale into something special. We’re very happy with where False Pattern ended up, and we think you will be too. So thank you and RIP, TOATS. You’ll always be with us
