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.

Starting this week, North Shore Lager will be hitting tap lines and liquor store shelves throughout Minnesota. You can also find it at our taproom in Two Harbors if you fancy pairing a North Shore Lager with a North Shore view.

We are so excited to release this new year-round dangerously good ale. Check out the Beer Finder on our website to see where you can get North Shore Lager in your neck of the woods.

Our first Taproom Series beer of 2019! Baltic Porter is a rich, crisp, and warming lager for the winter. It is very dark with a chocolate and roasted coffee aroma. This beer is somewhat sweet with a very full body and higher than usual ABV at 7.5%. The lager fermentation keeps this beer tasting crisp and clean without too much ester or fruitiness.

We are releasing Baltic Porter in our taproom on Friday, January 4th. Details for the Baltic Porter Release Party are listed below in the Taproom section.

Head over to the Beer Finder on our website to see where you can grab a pint of Baltic Porter beers.

This month we asked Packaging Operator Extraordinaire, Angelo Ray, some personal questions and he was gracious enough to answer them. Read his rad responses below:

What did you do before working at CDB?
  • I briefly worked in the Sonju parts department and prior to that I spent nearly 10 years as a merchandiser for Coca-Cola in Duluth.
How long have you been working for CDB?
  • Just over two glorious years.
What is your favorite part of your job?
  • I really enjoy being a part of creating something special in my hometown with a truly great family of coworkers. (Aww, shucks.)
What is your favorite CDB beer? What is your favorite beer outside of CDB?
If you could be any animal, which would you be?
  • I'd probably be a chameleon. I'd like to think I'm a fairly patient and relaxed person who knows when to try and stand out and when to lay low and blend in.
What is your favorite movie?
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Who inspires you?
  • My daughters are probably the biggest inspiration in my life. They're always pushing me to try harder, do better, and keep laughing. (We're not crying... you're crying.)
Describe one crazy moment/memory you've had at CDB.
  • Around the time I started at the brewery, former CDB Legend Alex Goble (truth) was showing me how to use the “kegger”. We were wrapping up a run of George Hunter Stout and he was giving me instructions on how to put the machine into clean-in-place (CIP) mode. I had forgotten to put the cover on the fill side of the machine before I turned the dial to CIP. I flipped the dial and Stout came rocketing up, out of the kegger. It was an incredible, dark, sticky mess and Alex got soaked! I felt so bad! But it was a lesson learned in taking an extra few seconds to make sure everything is done safely and correctly. 

Angelo is one of the kindest, most level-headed chaps you'll ever have the pleasure of meeting. Not to mention, an incredibly hard-worker. We are so fortunate to have him on Team Danger and can't wait to make more memories with him. Cheers to you, Angelo!

It's here! More beer! Check out the official beer calendar for 2019 and plan ahead for our upcoming releases. First up for the Taproom Series is Baltic Porter, releasing at our taproom on January 4th. More details on that below. Let's start the new beer year off right!

Our taproom will be OPEN today, New Year's Day. Come and have a pint with us and be sure to stay for Trivia Mafia Tuesday starting at 6 pm. We'll see you on the North Shore.

We will be tapping Baltic Porter at 6 pm on Friday, January 4th and not a minute before. What you can look forward to: introduction to Baltic Porter by Head Brewery Bjorn at 6pm, live music by Hannah Rey starting at 7pm, awesome prize drawings, multiple infusions of Baltic Porter, and a Louise's Place pop-up shop. *The first 24 people to order a Baltic Porter will get a free Team Danger pint glass.* We're also offering $1 off tulips and discounted growlers of Baltic Porter during the party. The first drawing will be at 7pm and will go every hour until 9pm - must purchase a tulip of Baltic Porter to enter the drawing, and must be present to win. Mark your calendars!!

Our Pints for a Cause program is donating to the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon for the entire month of January. Stop in every Wednesday and $1 of every pint sold will go to the organization. It's a great way to feel good about drinking beer. See you on Wednesday.
