Modist Brewing Co. begins distribution

The Twin Cities beer market is about to be modified.

Modist Brewing Co., the North Loop brewery that does brewing just a little differently than the rest of the crowd, goes to market on Thursday, March 7 with its first two 16-ounce can releases. Previously, crowlers have been available in select stores, but the release of First Call, a cold press coffee lager, and Dream Yard, an American IPA, represents the brewery’s first true-to-form multi-pack beer bliss with four packs.

About that beer ..

First Call, according to Modist, uses “barley and oats to create a light, clean beer with a nice full body, the infuse it with an outstanding espresso roast from local coffee roasters Welsey Andrews.”

Dream Yard, on the other hand, is a hazy, juicy American IPA that is created through the brewery’s “ability of our mash filter system to create a grain bill that is almost entirely oats and wheat. The properties of the grain create a fantastic haze that helps to lock in the aromas and flavors from an insane amount of Citra and Denali hops.”
