About the Beer
Castle Cream Ale
Brewery Description: Sitting around the kitchen table during our start-up days, the need for a sessionable beer became clear. Our first intern actually came up with the idea to brew a cream ale, so we started designing the recipe. As with all Castle Danger beers, we start with a flavor profile, then expand upon it to create something unique. Castle Cream is our version of a cream ale. Deep gold in color, it has a soft malty aroma, slightly sweet creamy texture with a balanced bitterness, while finishing smooth and clean.
Flavors and Aromas: Honey, biscuit, caramel, slight hop spice
Malts: Pilsen, Light Munich, Caramel 10, Flaked Corn
Hops: German Hallertau, Hersbrucker, Tettnang
Brewery Description: Ode IPA is a culmination of our love of hops and the variations of India Pale Ales we have brewed through the years. We like to use hops where flavor and aroma are at the forefront. Citra, Azacca, Amarillo, and Centennial hops lend bright citrus and tropical fruit in flavor and aroma. It is an Ode to all the great IPAs that have shaped our palates.
Flavors and Aromas: Floral, tropical, juicy, balanced bitterness
Malts: Pale Ale, Munich, Cara Pils
Hops: Amarillo, Azacca, Centennial, Citra
17-7 Pale Ale
Brewery Description: 17-7 Pale Ale is named after our address in Two Harbors (17-7th Street) that overlooks Lake Superior. 17-7 was crafted in our original 93-gallon system in Castle Danger. It is a hop-forward Pale Ale brewed with our 7-hop variety but has enough of a biscuit-malt backbone to keep it honest. It is our go-to beer at Castle Danger.
Flavors and Aromas: Citrusy, crisp, hop forward, clean finish
Malts: Pale Ale, Munich, Medium Crystal, Cara Pils
Hops: Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook, Centennial, Citra, Mosaic
North Shore Lager
Brewery Description: North Shore Lager is a classic Vienna-style lager with a brilliant amber color. It is a balanced beer with flavors of toasted bread, caramel, and spicy Noble hops that finishes clean and dry. Enjoy this smooth malty beer year-round, but particularly with a cool breeze off Lake Superior. It’s the perfect complement to your North Shore experience.
Flavors and Aromas: Toasted bread, caramel, spice
Malts: Pilsen, Munich, Light Caramel, Dark Malt
Hops: Northern Brewer, Hallertau, Tettnang, Hersbrucker
