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.
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.
Steele County’s very own Czech village, Litomysl (“wistful thoughts”), is renowned as the home of Holy Trinity Church, built in 1940-41 w/ 600 loads of rock from local farm fields. We pay tribute to local Czech history with our wistful Litomysl Lager.
Union Depot IPA
The Union Depot station was situated where N/S and E/W tracks intersected, forming the “Famous Diamond”, the most important post-Civil War junction in Minnesota. Originally located just north of Front Street, this elegant structure was restored/relocated, and can still be seen on Eisenhower Drive. Raise a glass to those who arrived in Owatonna through the Depot …
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.
Steele Scotch Ale
Steele County was created by the Minnesota Territory legislature in February 1855, with Owatonna serving as the county seat. This Scotch ale is a fitting tribute to the hardworking heritage of the early settlers of Steele County.
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!
Havana Hazy IPA
Steele County’s Havana Township is directly east of Owatonna. Originally organized in 1857 as Lafayette Township, later renamed Freeman, then Dover, and finally Havana in 1869 (recognizing Havana, IL … seriously!). The hazy history of Steele County’s Havana Township matches the hazy flavor of MSB’s third hazy IPA. Enjoy!
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. This ‘lazy river’ imagery perfectly aligns with this hazy, citrusy, thirst-quenching IPA.
Ringmaker Rye IPA
From class rings to Super Bowl rings, Owatonna’s Otto Josten left his mark, still alive today in the hundreds of employees working at Jostens. Our Ringmaker Rye IPA balances malty richness with that great hoppy character you expect in a great IPA.
