SingleSpeed Brewing, Cedar Falls, IA

Definitely not exclusively German stuff, but they’ve rotated through about 10 German styles. Pils, Helles, Alt, Schwarz, Märzen, several Goses, which are “contemporary style” meaning adjuncts.

Gable Helles was great. :ale:

Loved all of their beers I tried.  Their description of their Pils was the best description of the fest: "it tastes like beer".

Folksbier Brauerei, Brooklyn, NY



Assorted new school Berliner Weisses seem to be the bulk of their output, alongside a few more traditional lagers, Helles, Schwarz, an Altbier and Kölsch, and a few APA/IPA's to keep the hipster hopheads happy.

From Beervana blog:
Quote
FOLKSBIER BRAUEREI

I got to meet a lot of people in the New York beer scene, and I started asking this question: “What’s the brewery I should see no one’s talking about?” (A great question, incidentally, if you want to get off the Untappd superhighway leading you to the same buzz breweries.) The answer was inevitably Folksbier, an unusual operation with just a half dozen beers pouring—and not a hazy to be found.

I would describe the beer as eclectic but connected by a thread of rusticity, whether it was an English style (a rye porter), Belgian (table beer), or German (sort of a thick Franconian lager). That thread is carried over into the presentation and space. The vibe at the tasting room is mellow and countrified—to the extent such a thing is possible in NYC—and the day we visited, Grateful Dead played softly on the stereo. There were two dogs in the place and one baby. It felt like a pub people settle into for a session.

Bayern Brewing, Missoula, MT

Founded in the 80's, and the packaging looks early 90's. :coffee:



Edit: Interview with the brewer

Quote
Oh, and by the way, the brewery was five stories up and five stories down into the cellars. That’s where you’re really lean and mean, running up and down stairs all the time, pushing, and lifting and shoveling all day long.

Big fan of Bayern. They had a small distro in Seattle when I lived there. Every beer I tried was good to stellar. The Groomer was especially top notch. They must do well if they don’t have to send a ton to WA. People in MT love beer.

That sounds like what I was reading too, very consistent high quality German lagers. Seem to stay in their lane, though they do a one-off series called Inconceivable.

Rosenstadt Brewery, Portland, OR



Contract-brewer focused on German styles. Uh, their mailing address is a UPS store... :blink:
http://www.rosenstadtbrewery.com

Authentic German beers brewed by a German microbiologist for an impossibly clean finish and unprecedented refreshment.
Rosenstadt co-founder Tobias Hahn hails from Germany and holds a PhD in microbiology, so the deftness with which he and partner Nick Greiner brew some of the cleanest, smoothest, and most authentic German beers in Portland should be surprising to no one. The two have kept things slow and steady since starting with a fantastic Kölsch in 2015, and though they’ve focused more on honing their craft than securing a proper brewpub, they’re relatively easy to locate in the wild (now that most knowledgeable buyers rely on their Helles Lager or German Pale as a go-to for filling the German portion of their taplists). They’ve also launched a quasi-tap takeover at Olympia Provisions Public House, which means you can reliably find a handful of greatest hits like the Helles or a rich and malty Altbier to wash down a bratwurst while playing a game of cornhole on the Division Street sausage haus’ massive patio.

Stubborn German Brewing
Waterloo, IL



Another obscure Illinois brewery on my to-do list. Close enough to STL to make a stop, but more likely an "on the way" to White Rooster & Scratch further SE.
Apparently they got their brewing equipment from Castle Danger in MN.

Re: Stubborn German Brewing.

Why would a place named this way be selling a BA Belgian Quad and Barelywine and an APA. An O'fest on in July (aren't they meant for late summer and early fall rather than mid summer)???? I mean, I am not complaining about having a Rauch on tap but a dry hopped porter and coffee brown ale don't sound like the kind of beers a stubborn German would make.
https://stubborngermanbrewing.com/beers-drinks/

I also wished they were open at noon on a Thursday. why isn't every brewery open at noon on a Thursday. #BeerGeekProblems.

Probably to satisfy the locals and demand for more variety than just lagers. Sounds like their schtick is "every day is Oktoberfest", so at least they have a lot of practice brewing it. ;D

I feel your pain :D Seems like every small town brewery opens at 4-5pm Thu-Sat, closed Sun-Wed or similar. We always seem to travel Sun/Mon or have time for 1 lunch stop, and I can't tell you how many times i've passed up closed places.

Their beers are nowhere near as good as real German versions, in saying that they're decent. In my humble opinion of course.

Schilling Beer Company, Littleton, NH

Brewing "European-inspired beers" with a good amount of German styles. Their building looks really cool...

https://schillingbeer.com/brewery/our-liquids/#German-Inspired-Ales
https://schillingbeer.com/brewery/our-liquids/#European-style-Wheat-Beers

Side rant: Dunno how fruited kettle sours are traditional Goses, but otherwise they seem very traditional. I've noticed this with other breweries, insisting on labeling their fruit glop as "Gose". Is any beer still considered representative of a base style when it's 70% fruit puree? I'd think you'd sell more calling it "pastry fruit tart" or something equally non-beer. The average smootie enthusiast probably has no clue what a Gose truly is. :rant: :D :bakes:

Outside of SN, this is probably the brewery I’ve drank most over the last year or so since I discovered them.  Recently had a smoked doppelbock form them that was killer.

Alright, going to try to this again next week.  Much less interesting lineup at the moment and less than a third of the beers fall into the German category  :shrug:. But beer geeks gonna beer geek (even if it is not totally exciting).

Gotta make what sells in Waterloo, IL. Six German-style beers isn’t bad, but I can’t imagine they could survive on that alone.

Are you spending much time in the area? Good luck & report back! :excited:

Yep, I think I posted them in here before.  I haven’t made it to their tasting room, it’s way out in the middle of no where.  Had a few bottles and draft pours over the years though, not bad.
Should we take a cab home, Jesus?
Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...
But can you walk on this much beer?

Aha... yep, so you did. :doh: Thought i'd made a new discovery.

I have had a few of their beers, no stand outs.  But I have never visited the tasting room, looks like a decent place so will visit in the next couple weeks.
Their beers are nowhere near as good as real German versions, in saying that they're decent. In my humble opinion of course.
