Cold Spring, MN — The Third Street Brewhouse, in collaboration with the Saint John’s Abbey Arboretum, has released their winter seasonal called Sugar Shack Maple Stout. This truly unique brew is enhanced with maple syrup harvested locally at the Saint John’s Abbey, which is less than 20 miles from the brewery.
This full bodied stout was will be available in local liquor stores and on tap in select bars & restaurants throughout the MN, ND and Superior WI. The beer has subtle but distinct hints of roasted and specialty malts. Its dark appearance is a testament to its robust nature but it is delicately balanced with sweet and hoppy notes to produce a smooth, slightly creamy stout with an insatiable pleasant maple syrup flavor.
These discerning monks have given Third Street Brewhouse exclusive rights to pair their notoriously sweet blend with Third Street crafted beer to bring you the Sugar Shack Maple Stout. [Welcome to the Sugar Shack].
About Saint John’s Abbey Arboretum
The monks of Saint John’s Abbey have been producing maple syrup for over 60 years. Since its founding in 1856, the abbey has been guided by the Benedictine principles of stability, hospitality, and stewardship. In 1997, this longstanding principle of stewardship led the monks to designate the lands of Saint John’s a natural arboretum. The Saint John’s Arboretum encompasses over 2500 acres surrounding the abbey and the university. Each spring the monks tap the sugar maple trees in an area that’s known as the Sugar Bush. They collect the sap and boil it in the Sugar Shack.
