Batch 100 Release Party

Our release party for our new seasonal Batch 100 will be June 17th, 4-7pm.

In honor of our 100th brew, McCann's is pleased to introduce our latest Seasonal offering: Batch 100.
This German Kotbusser style ale is a bit of a outlaw, as it is brewed with the addition of honey, oats and molassas. This goes against the German purity law of 1516, the Reinheitsgebot, which states that beer may only be brewed with water, malt and hops (they didn't know about yeast yet).
This old world golden German ale is fermented in cooler temperatures with a hybrid ale strain that has lager characteristics. Hops from St. Cloud's sister city, Spalt, Germany are added to the brew kettle for medium bitterness. The oats add texture to the body and the honey and molassas give this beer a soft underlying complexity with a crisp, refreshing finish. A perfect match for our hot Minnesota summers.
