We will also create unique one-off beers that will be served from firkins (a small wooden cask) in the taproom. We will even offer these special firkins to other select drinking/eating establishments – some will be available exclusively only at that location.
You can enjoy Tilion beers in our comfortable and spacious taproom or you can get a growler or crowler to take home with you!
Style: Patersbier/Belgian Single
This is a true Belgian Single Ale. There are very few commercial options available for this type of beer, as the Trappist monks traditionally only brew it for their own consumption within the monastery where it is made.
This is one of the most simple, yet complex, beers that you will find. Celebrate the trinity: one hop, one malt and one yeast! Spicy, malty, and Belgian through and through, without the heavy ABV.
Style: Steam Ale
This beer is brewed in the style of a Steam Ale with one exception – the yeast. Steam Ale was designed by brewers at the turn of the century who were using scraps left over from their brew day. The beer always had some barley, rye, corn, hops and lager yeast.
Because refrigeration at the turn of the century was hard to come by, they fermented their beer using lager yeast at room temperature. Our recipe replicates this tradition with everything but the lager yeast.
Style: Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Our Stout literally tastes like a dark chocolate oatmeal cookie in a glass. We took a classic oatmeal stout brewed with traditional English yeast and added dark chocolate roasted barley malt.
Style: Red IPA
In a market like Minnesota there are plenty of great IPAs. Being a Minnesota brewery, we knew that we needed an outstanding IPA! We also knew that we needed something truly different, so in true Tilion fashion, we created something unique – a Red IPA.
Style: American Wheat
There is nothing like a wheat beer in the summer time and this is, hands down, one of our favorites! We knew that we wanted to make a wheat beer that was a little different from the rest. During a Memorial Day trip to Washington Island in Door County, Wisconsin, I fell in love not only with the island, but also with the tart cherries grown there. I figured that they would make a great malty, yet tart, beer!
Style: American Pale Ale
We created “Roger, Roger” as our entry-level craft beer designed with our fathers and grandfathers in mind. That is to say, all of us who grew up on macro-brewed American Lagers. Sometimes making that leap to “craft” beer is a little scary, so we tried to remove as many of the barriers as possible.
In addition, you can feel good about drinking this beer because a portion of the proceeds from sales of this beer go directly back to those Minnesota men and women in the armed forces who have served overseas. We believe that freedom isn’t free and, while there are many great programs out there for our service men and women, we can always do more for those in need.
