Beer Bread Made with Dead Irish Poet by Kieran Folliard
February 28, 2021
If you’ve been to Ireland, you’ve already tasted this. If you haven’t – there’s a unique chance to discover it in The Twin Cities.
Old friends collaborate to bring a slice of Ireland to The Twin Cities in support of Minnesota’s Irish Fair. Kieran Folliard, Irish born entrepreneur and founder of Food Building, has teamed up with Jacquie Berglund of FINNEGANS, Maeve O’Mara at Irish on Grand and Irish Fair’s Tom Whelan to promote and cultivate Irish culture ahead of Saint Patrick’s Day.

March Brewer’s Log: St. Patrick’s Day
February 28, 2021
Oh, March! The greenest month of the year. Not in the “fresh, newly grown grass” kind of way, but in an “Irish pride” sense! Many of us like to claim we’ve got a little Irish blood in us. . Well, 23andMe says I’m about 1.8% Irish or British. Yes!
We will be open on St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate and consume frothy beverages. It seems like years ago that we shuttered our doors for last year’s celebration, but really it’s only been 365 days. Having the ability to be open is huge news for us. And, it will be our third year celebrating our home in downtown… Read more
February Brewer’s Log: Pulling Copper
February 4, 2021
February. The cold weather is setting in for that final push of winter. Then greener grass will be just around the corner. Things might also be getting greener as St. Patrick’s Day is looming. If you didn’t already know, we are pretty busy this time of year, brewing for that oh-so-special day. This month, I’m starting it off with a new beer that’s exclusive to the taproom. It packs its punches with all the other IPAs. I have brewed it with a little less alcohol, so finishing off the growler in one fell swoop won’t ruin your next morning.

Happy New Year! Dark Week has arrived! No wait, Dark Month! We are changing up this year’s usual festivities, they may look a little different, but everything is still jam-packed with dark beer.

December Brewer’s Log: Foodie Edition
December 3, 2020
Who needs a change of pace? Who has seen the movie Groundhog Day? I keep working to get beer into your homes to make it a little bit more tolerable. I want to change this month’s brewer’s log up on you. How about a food-focused one? I guess you don’t have much of a choice….
I feel FINNEGANS’ beer goes with everything. Our classic Irish Amber has a connection to corned beef, and Tile Factory IPA has a crush on goat cheese omelets. If you have a deep fryer at home, make some fries and brown gravy, and buy some cheese curds and bacon. Poutine should be… Read more
