all Year Beer and DoWNTOWN Food
Variety is the spice of life, and at WoodGrain Brewing Co. beer is our spice and you can expect variety. It is too easy to become stagnant in the beers we drink and make, but at WoodGrain, you can expect a rotating selection of several main beer styles on tap.
Speaking of "tap," check us out on Untappd. We keep an up-to-date menu and calendar of events there for easy access on your smartphone. Be sure to check in to your favorite beers and let us know what you think!
Nothing goes better with beer than food...but we don't make any. But we've teamed with a variety of restaurants in and around Downtown to hook us up. You can text Fiero Pizza and they'll deliver. MacKenzie River Pizza offers a discount on to-go orders with our super secret WoodGrain password. Keep an eye on social media for visits from our friends at Bread and Circus and a variety of food trucks.
As always, feel free to bring your own grub...We've got the beer.
Seasonals and specialties
These aren't your everyday beers. Always looking to push the envelope, the WoodGrain brewers often experiment with the brews looking for new and tasty ways to brew up something unique. These beers are available in limited quantities and will change often.
Each year Jason and Steve pick a style and have a friendly competition. Usually it is something hoppy…and Steve wins. This year will be a little different. The guys have decided to shake it up and brew up their own favorite versions of a Belgian Style Saison. Keep your eyes out for more info on their competition.
At this point it feels like if WoodGrain didn’t make this summer staple, there may be an uprising. So fear not…the light, refreshing Kolsch will come back…with more natural lime flavor than ever.
A taste of Brazil meets our latest New England-style IPA. We are excited to announce our first collaboration with the one and only Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls, SD! Everything about this beer is new. To create Carnaval IPA we took Master of Opinion IPA and added one pound of Carnaval's freshly roasted cinnamon pineapple per gallon of beer. Pineapple, tropical hop character, and just a touch of cinnamon make Carnaval IPA a one of a kind.
In The Barrels
The guys at WoodGrain have a thing for barrel aged beers. From big Russian Imperial Stouts to Belgian Quads and Farmhouse Saisons, they love the complexity time in a barrel can add to a beer. Though limited in space, WoodGrain, with some help from some friends, has started to fill a variety of barrels with some tasty treats. But be patient. These rare beers will take time.
DOUBLE MILK STOUT (Imperial Stout)
What happens when you take all the goodness of our standard Milk Stout and turn it up to 11? An enormous, rich, creamy, chocolaty treat that after it sits in Woodford barrels for a few months might become one of the most complex beer's we've made.
FIVE HORIZONS BLACK IPA
Honestly…we borrowed this idea from our friends at Lost Cabin in the Black Hills. Bartender Tom brewed up a tribute beer to his favorite band, Pearl Jam and tossed 50 gallons into a barrel to see what happened. This resinous Cascadian Dark Ale will be dry hopped in the brite tanks before being kegged for your enjoyment.
BELGIAN DUBBEL in BRANDY BARRELS
Our tasty Belgian style Dubbel is resting peacefully in brandy barrels in the basement waiting for an infusion of tart cherries before entering bottles to be shared with our friends.
IMPERIAL MILK STOUT
A bigger version of Woodgrain's popular Milk Stout. Add in some cocoa nibs and espresso for some added complexity and flavor. On top of all of that...how about three different barrels to age it in. Yup...this big beer release will be overwhelming.
After years of pleading, Jason finally got to fill a super fresh Jack Daniels barrel with this robust Scottish Wee Heavy.
