Spring in Minnesota is so close, we can taste it. It tastes like a satisfying sip from a sunshine illuminated glass of beer. It smells like the crackling wood of smoldering bonfires, and the intoxicating plumes of smoke produced by sweet BBQ slowly cooking away. And it sounds like the ambient noise of lively local music coming from all directions.

Well, we’re tired of waiting! Join us at Insight Brewing to help usher in the springtime with SMOKE SIGNALS– an indoor/outdoor rebellion against the final vestiges of the cold season. Featuring:

A special menu of carefully curated, slow-smoked BBQ, prepared on-site at the brewery by Bark and the Bite, served alongside Insight beer BBQ sauces, and suggested beer pairings:
  • Applewood Smoked Pulled Pork on Toasted Brioche, with “UP Your Red Eye” BBQ Sauce featuring Devil’s Companion Porter and UP coffee.
  • Ancho Chili BBQ Rubbed Smoked Chicken Thigh, with Pineapple-Hell Chicken Escovitch and Citrus Slaw

Additional Smoke Signals Signature Barbecue Sauces:

  • Cherry Battering Ram Sauce
  • Grapefruit Vodka Chile Sauce
Specialty casks designed to be paired with great BBQ, with timed tappings all day long:
  • 1PM Habanero Hell Chicken
  • 3PM UP Coffee Devil’s Companion
  • 5PM Mango Troll Way
  • 7PM Smoked Poblano Battering Ram

Indoor live music from some of the finest BBQ party worthy jam bands and folk artists in the Twin Cities:

  • 1PM Drew Peterson of the Dead Pigeons
  • 3PM Fiddlecello
  • 5PM Roe Family Singers
  • 7PM Brass Barn Polka Band
  • 9PM Nathan Scott Phillips Band
…and bonfires burning outside throughout the day to keep you warm with a beer and some slow smoked BBQ in hand! We can’t wait to see you this Saturday!
