Cinder Hill Cream Ale
Cinder Hill is a steep 60 foot hill on Linn Avenue overlooking downtown Owatonna, and is used by local athletes for training. MSB’s Cinder Hill Cream Ale is a very drinkable, refreshing beer that would hit the spot after a few runs up and down Cinder Hill.
Thunderbolt IPA (Hoppy)
Herb Joesting became known as the “Owatonna Thunderbolt” when he was an All-American fullback at the University of Minnesota. This American IPA will give you the hops and energy to thunder down the road of life.
The Kaplan family has been synonymous with success in Owatonna for over 150 years. The crisp, clean old world flavor of Kölsch will take you back in time to revel in those successes. This is a refreshing German beer that draws you in to that second Kölsch.
Louis Henry Sullivan was a famous American architect that brought the prairie style design of the National Farmers Bank building in Owatonna. Sullivan Stout is a rich, flavorful beer, brewed with roasted barely, providing that coffee flavor. This famously Irish beer is the perfect match for recognizing Sullivan’s Irish heritage and significant local impact.
Emmett & Phyllis Amber
Back in the late-1950s, Emmett and Phyllis Jacobson built the structure now housing our brewery. To honor them, we’ve brewed a deep, copper–colored beer with a full–bodied, more pronounced malty caramel flavor. Cheers to Emmett & Phyllis!
Cornell Scotch Ale
Very near MSB’s current location was the cabin of A.B. Cornell, the first resident of Owatonna. In recognition of this historic marker we’ve brewed this traditional Scotch Ale, also known in this part of the region as the ‘Sleepover Ale’ (origins unclear/fuzzy).
Straight River IPA
The healing water of Owatonna’s Mineral Springs makes its way to the Straight River, rolling directly west of MSB’s brewery and taproom. That ‘lazy river’ imagery perfectly aligns with this hazy, citrusy,thirst-quenching IPA.
Hope Chocolate Milk Stout
Steele County’s own Hope, MN, is home to Hope Creamery, makers of the best butter money can buy. We think you’ll love our fine dairy flavors when you toss back one of our Hope Chocolate Milk Stouts. Brewing with deep roast malts and lactose, provides this ale with its sweet, complex flavor.
As brewing continues in the weeks ahead, you can expect to see the following:
Litomysl Lager and 507 Brown Ale …
