Go Somewhere Unmapped!

At Unmapped Brewing, we're all about great beer, great times, and the great outdoors. That is why we plan to serve our signature Belgian and Stateside ales in the charming Glen Lake neighborhood of Minnetonka.
 
With our year-round beer lineup, seasonals, and special-releases, we'll always have something new for you to explore. We can't wait to share a pint with you in May 2017!

Call to Action 1 Title

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

The Story

When Founders JD and Megan first met, beer wasn't really part of the equation. What they really enjoyed was going on adventures together. However, hiking up mountains and climbing steep hills on XC skis makes one quite thirsty, so logically, JD and Megan quickly became craft beer fans.

Well, it wasn't too long before they began brewing their own beer at home. After a few years of meticulously perfecting each batch of beer, the once half-whispered, "Let's do something crazy and start a brewery" idea became more and more difficult to disregard. So, after much planning, hiking, biking, drinking, and more planning, JD and Megan decided to go for it. Unmapped Brewing was born, and so began their greatest adventure yet!

 

The Beers

We're taking the trail less traveled and offering more year-round beers than you'd expect. Of the 7 year-round beers in the mix, 4 are Belgian styles and 3 are "Stateside" styles (our fancy word for American styles). We will also have seasonal releases and other special releases throughout the year to keep your palate on its toes.

Disorientation

Belgian Tripel

Name: Disorientation

Beer Style: Belgian Tripel

ABV: 8.6%

IBU: 24

Disorientation is a golden-colored Belgian-style Tripel.

Brewed with malts and hops from the European continent, Disorientation pays homage to the great brewing traditions of the Trappist monks. Belgian candi sugar and high-cropping yeast take this seemingly simple beer to new heights with elaborate phenolic and estery flavors that compliment its malty-sweet backbone.

Quadruplication

Belgian Dark Strong

Name: Quadruplication

Beer Style: Belgian Dark Strong

ABV: 10%

IBU: 26

Quadruplication is a type of Belgian Dark Strong Ale known as a “Quadrupel."

Like its sister-beer Disorientation, Quadruplication is brewed to honor the age-old traditions of the Trappist monks. Darker malts and dark candi sugar are used to craft a full bodied ale with a deep chestnut color. As this beer warms up, it grows in flavor complexity- each sip offers a new experience. Hints of caramel, plum, grape, and licorice can be noted in different stages of its journey.

Middle of Anywhere

Pale Ale

Name: Middle of Anywhere

Beer Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 5.2%

IBU: 37

Middle of Anywhere is a classic Pale Ale with a bright copper color.

North American malts are aligned with select US hops to produce a well-balanced, flavorful beer with hints of citrus and fruit. It starts with a pleasant floral aroma and finishes with a malty sweetness- a beer that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere!

No Trace

IPA

Name: No Trace

Beer Style: IPA

ABV: 6.6%

IBU: 59

No Trace is a flavorful, hop-forward IPA.

With a less-prominent malt profile, the hops get their chance to shine! Immediately noticeable is a delightful grapefruit and melon aroma. The initial bite of the hop bitterness quickly gives way to a burst of flavor that features notes of grapefruit and melon.

Late Watch

Barleywine

Name: Late Watch

Beer Style: Barleywine

ABV: 9.5%

IBU: 95

Late Watch fuses hop bitterness with malty sweetness to create a robust ruby-red Barleywine.

A very complex malt profile brings sweet and roasted malt flavors together to create a full-bodied foundation. Specially selected hops create a fantastic aroma and flavor display that features earthy pine and floral notes. Combined, these malt and hop flavors forge a surprising yet enticing alliance.

The Brewery

We are designing our brewery and taproom to be an exciting community gathering place. Here are a few things to know about the Unmapped Brewery & Taproom:

We'll have plenty of space for you and your crew to relax and make yourselves at home while you enjoy a pint of refreshing Unmapped beer.

We won't be serving our own food in the taproom, but that doesn't mean you can't eat here! Feel free to bring food with you, or (even better) order takeout from one of the restaurants on our take-out menu.

True to our outdoorsy roots, we will be creating a "mini park" patio area for summertime enjoyment.

As a kid-friendly brewery, we'll have plenty of indoor and outdoor games to keep an entire family occupied. Non-alcoholic beverages will be offered as well.

If your dog is friendly, we'd love for them to visit the taproom with you. We'll make sure there's plenty of water (and some treats, too!) 
Make sure you also keep an eye out for Ruby the Adventure Corgi when you stop by.

In addition to weekly tours, we are also planning some excellent events such as live music, food truck visits, trivia, and bingo to name a few.

And of course, we'll have our tasty Unmapped brews on tap for you. Our seven Belgian & Stateside ales will always be available, but we'll be pouring plenty of seasonals and special releases to keep things new and fresh each time you visit.

We're really excited to share our plans with you, so please stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to breaking ground!
