Sneak Peek: 2015 Winterfest


On Friday, February 27th, Boom Island Brewery will be featuring the following expertly crafted Belgian Brews:

Brimstone Tripel: Big body, creamy yet crisp nuanced yeast character and spices layered on light fruit notes, and a long lasting white head

Hoodoo Dubbel: Rich and complex dark malt flavors accented deftly by banana, clove, and low hop bitterness. Hoodoo pours lush, deep brown and red highlights with a thick, long-lasting beige head and malt aroma

Zarathirstra: Specially brewed for the Minnesota Orchestra’s Strauss Festival 2014. Light Vienna and Munich malts are highlighted by an assertive hop bitterness and dry finish. This Belgian Bitter is on tap exclusively at Orchestra Hall and our taproom

Gravity No. 9: The newest addition to the Boom Island family is a Tequila Barrel Aged Belgian Strong fermented with plums

Noire: Our Black IPA is fermented with dark Belgian candy sugar and dry hopped with Citra and Columbus hops

Cuvée de Boom: A special beer brewed for the first annual Boom Days Festival in 2014, this blend of 55% blonde ale and fermented with 45% Pinot Grigio grapes, combines flavor elements of both a golden ale and a dry sparkling white wine
