Third Street Brewhouse Debuts New Beers and Can Packaging


COLD SPRING, Minn. – It’s a new year and that means big things for Third Street Brewhouse. Starting in March Third Street will introduce new 16 ounce cans for the first time. Not only that, but the company will also introduce two new beers to their annual line-up.

In a time where it’s increasingly important to be environmentally conscious Third Street Brewhouse has decided to transition the production of its craft beer from glass bottles to 16 ounce cans. “For us it was an easy decision,” said Larry Williams, VP of Sales at Third Street Brewhouse. “There are a lot of reasons for making this change but the largest is the fact that we have a canning facility that is second to none and we wanted to take advantage of that.”

Did we mention new beer? Beginning in March Third Street Brewhouse will release two new year round beers. The first, an IPA called Hop Lift. At 6.2% alcohol by volume, Hop Lift is a bold, dry-hopped beer bursting with citrus and passion fruit notes. This will be the first beer to debut under the direction of new Brewhouse Manager Karl Schmitz. Schmitz returned to the brewery in October 2015 after working at a brewery in Iowa for three years. He started his brewing career with the Cold Spring Brewing Company in 2005.

“I’m excited about this beer,” said Schmitz. “We’ve put in a lot of time and effort into contracting some really unique hops. We’ve also done several test runs to make sure we’ve got the recipe fine tuned. If you love hops you’re going to love this beer.”

The second new beer to Third Street’s line-up is a Light Lager called Minnesota Gold Light – with a 3.9% alcohol by volume and 157 calories this beer is a lighter version of the popular Minnesota Gold Lager. “We feel like Minnesota Gold Light will fill a niche market, especially locally,” said Schmitz.

Look for Third Street’s new 16 ounce cans of Hop Lift IPA, Lost Trout Brown Ale and Three Way Pale Ale in 4 packs at the liquor store. Minnesota Gold Light will join the already available Minnesota Gold Lager in 12 packs.
