Since 2014, Tin Whiskers Brewing Co. has been creating artfully engineered classic lagers, inventive infusions, and nostalgia-inspired beers as downtown St. Paul’s first production brewery. Now in 2020, the team is ramping up for what might be their biggest summer of new beers yet. Tin Whiskers Brewing Co. just reopened its Lowertown taproom and its summer beers will hit the taps and land in local liquor stores for everyone to enjoy.
Lighter Summer Beers from Tin Whiskers

Kick off the warmer months with one of the brewery’s first summer releases, Rocket Pop Dream State. This blue raspberry, lime, and cherry ice pop-themed beer looks and tastes exactly like a melted rocket pop. The bright blueish green beer took Instagram by storm!
Follow that choice up with the Apricot Wheatstone Bridge, a new take on Tin Whiskers’ award-winning wheat ale, this time infused with fresh apricot for a bright, juicy stone fruit finish. Cans of this fresh, fruity wheat ale will be available through September and are shipping right now.
Perhaps the most anticipated beer this summer is the return of Tin Whiskers’ Bit-O-Honey Blonde Ale. Born out of a hyper-local collaboration with Pearson’s Candy Company (also located in St. Paul), this full-flavored light ale celebrates the long-lasting taffy with flavors of honey and almond. Fans of the rest of this series (including the Salted Nut Roll Cream Ale, Mint Patties Double Stout, and Nut Goodie Porter) won’t want to miss it.
Rounding out the lighter summer options is Pink Lemonade Dream State. Brewed with lemons and vanilla, this refreshing beer will be hard to miss with its electric pink label and 4-pack holder.
Traditional Styles Are Coming, Too
If you’re a fan of IPAs and more traditional styles, don’t worry. Tin Whiskers will continue its monthly Bot IPA series in July with Thunder Bot and Lightning, a new hazy and hoppy option brewed with African Queen, Southern Passion, and Amarillo hops. The first-ever canning of the brewery’s celebrated Funkenfest Oktoberfest lager will be released in the late summer.
Just the Beginning
Of course, all these beers are just a small sample of what’s available in the taproom, where Tin Whiskers regularly features 16-plus options to drink on-site at properly social-distanced tables or to-go in crowlers (you can shop the brewery’s crowler selection online and place an order for pickup, too). No matter what kind of beer you’re in the mood for this summer, Tin Whiskers has you covered.
