Drinks

Eastlake brews both post-modern American and traditional European beers, and holds down the fort in our own 88-seat taproom. Nice weather brings out our 48-seat landscaped street side sidewalk patio. 

Gluten-free? Non-drinker? Not quite 21 years old? We didn't forget about you – we also have Deane's kombucha on tap, and several flavors of botanically brewed soda in bottles.

We're also selling bombers and growlers of our beer at the bar. Available every day of the week (even Sunday!) until 10pm. Already have too many glass growlers in your basement? Bring any clean half gallon or 750ml growler, and we'll fill it at the tap. We even have extra lids for the ubiquitous half gallon growler in case you can't find yours or it got all gnarly. 

 

flagship BEERS

Nicollet Mauler Black IPA
Our bellwether brew is a hopped-up malty maelstrom of licorice, caramel, cacao, pine, tropical fruit, and floral aroma.
Anything and everything goes, and there are no wrong answers. Take a step back, let it overcome your senses,
and always remember: Maulers Gonna Maul.
Pairings: bacon cheeseburger, carne asada, 8-year cheddar

Shoot From The Hip IPA
Sometimes it doesn't matter who shot first.
Straight-shootin' gunslingers like us tend to talk ourselves into trouble.
Guava, passionfruit, and lychee hop aroma are all over this one.
Medium-dark caramel malt keeps things sweet enough to knock out the bitterness,
while the Belgian yeast leaves the finish dry.
Pairings: Lamb curry, pad thai, aged gouda

Blueliner Pale Ale
Blueliner is the pale ale made for the longer shifts. For those who playwith confidence at both ends of the ice.
Simcoe hops go hard to the net with big-time piney apricot aroma,
but the real yeoman’s work is a peachy citrus assist from Palisade. Go wild.
Pairings:  curry, pork loin torta, chicken tinga, smoked cheddar

Mud In Your Eye American Brown Ale
Biscuity hazelnut races past licorice caramel on the copper cobblestone road of sweetness and leaves you in the dust.
The subtle floral hop presence from Willamette hops keeps the rubber side on the road. Here's mud in your eye.
Pairings: Pork tamales, fish & chips, sharp cheddar

Dank Aaron Double IPA
Dank Aaron is a Double IPA that hits all the right stats - 100 IBU, 9% ABV, 755 HR – you get the idea.
Stickier than pine tar from copious amounts of a rotation of our brewers’ favorite hops,
Dank Aaron rounds the bases of flavor and aroma – citrus, pine, earthy, and resin.
This is a beer that can hit it anywhere, any time, just make sure you can get home safely.

YEAR-round ROTATING BEERS

 

Stick Style IPA
Charles Eastlake’s distinctive style of Queen Anne architecture is the inspiration for our American IPA. Known as Stick Style, easily obtained components were used to create over-the-top rococo designs. With that in mind, we tend to go a bit too far with a rotating blend of some of our favorite hops. Because if it ain’t baroque, fix it. Check here to see notes for each batch.

Kirby Pucker Sour Series
Stepping up to the plate is Kirby Pucker, our rotation of brews that undergo a second fermentation with lactobacillus.
Every iteration in the series is a unique Eastlake take on postmodern American sour beer.
Pucker up! After all, Lake Street Is For Lovers. Check here to see notes for each batch.

Southside Pilsner Czech Pilsner-esque Ale  
 52 IBU   5.2% ABV
Southside is brewed in the style of a Czech Pils, only with a cool-fermenting ale yeast. We call it Pilsner-esque.
A picaresque brew indeed, crisp and refreshing, Southside rolls with noticeable bitterness and spicy aroma from noble Saaz hops.
This “Helles of the north” is the perfect beer to throw down after a long ride down the alleys and streets of Southside Minneapolis.
