West Coast IPA meets Midwest Rye. Rated R is a beer for the Minnesota hopheads. This Rye IPA greets you with a burst of citrus hop aroma and tempts you with the spice from the rye. 612Brew’s most full-bodied and hoppy beer, yet easy enough that your mom would like it. If your mom is awesome.

Gateway Park is a pre-prohibition lager brewed with ingredients commonly used in this same style beer over a hundred years ago; six-row barley, flaked corn and Cluster hops.

Our friends from the Outfit owe us big time. This English Porter is brewed with oatmeal which contributes to the rich and velvety texture of this winter seasonal beer.

So, if you’ve got friends like us, be sure to buy them this beer as Payback… and root for the bad guy.
