First Brew Day in Northfield: June 7

May 27th, 2014

Greetings, Subzero Brewing followers new and old!

If you’re getting this brewsletter for the first time, welcome. Hope you like beer. If you’re getting this for the first time in awhile, we apologize for the gap … we’ve been busy with major life events, including moving the main location of Subzero Brewing from St. Louis Park to Northfield, Minnesota.

To highlight the relaunch of “regular operations” of Subzero Brewing, we are having a public Brew Day on our 25 gallon brewing system at our new Northfield location on Saturday, June 7th. For those who have not attended before, our Brew Days offer the opportunity to see how beer is made on a slightly larger scale then you might have seen before (i.e., stovetop), sample and criticize some Subzero beers, and most importantly, hang out with lots of cool people, several average ones, and one or two real jerks.

Brew Days are very kid-friendly, and if the weather cooperates, we’ll probably have the sprinkler and/or slip n’ slide going for them, as well as more kids’ toys than you have ever seen in your LIFE.

We also will have the grill available if you want to bring some meat (or veggies, if you must), and people often bring other food or beer to share. Festivities start around 12 p.m. and dwindle about 6 p.m., with the most action (at least, brewing action) happening in the first two hours. Hope to see you! Please email us at subzerobrewing@gmail if you have questions or need the address.

Second Location

There’s now a Subzero Brewing West, located in beautiful (and windy) Livingston, MT. So if you’re looking to get your fix of Black Ice (one of our signature beers) and slay some brown trout on the Yellowstone, check them out next time you’re out that way.

Brewing Black Ice Today (Sun)

August 18th, 2013

The end of summer is nigh and our supply of American Black Ale is running dangerously low, so we are throwing together a last minute brew day.  Our good friend has travelled all the way from Hong Kong to see the spectacle, so what excuse do you have (besides the fact that this is terribly last minute and you have little chance to see this and a large chance of already having other plans)?  Come by and hang out in the sun, drink our beer, help shovel some grain or throw some hops in the kettle, frolic on the triple-wide slip n slide, and throw some kind of meat on the grill.  We’ll be here from 11-6 or so…

Friday Night Imbibe

Let’s see what all the commotion is about.  A whopping 96 score on BeerAdvocate.  Damn Gina.

SZT-Front SZT-Back











Subzero Brewing is now officially looking for some human billboards.  We recently invested in some very bad-ass t-shirts sporting the evil snowmen logo and “tree trunks for arms” alternate logo.  Other SWAG coming soon, but this one is immediately available for purchase at the Subzero “store” (email us or contact via FB or Twitter) for the bargain-price of $20…this is a fundraising item as we continue to try and raise a little bit of seed money to (very slowly) go legit in the brewing industry and continue to develop some recipes.  Available only in charcoal color in men’s small to 2XL and we would really appreciate your financial support and participation in this guerilla marketing campaign.  Help build the Snow Army!

If Subzero Had a House Band…

April 17th, 2013

…it would be named:

“Green Eggs and Hammertime”

And now a reading….

April 15th, 2013

…from the Book of IPAs:

“Bert Grant was one of the first craft brewers in the United States to demonstrate what has become a model of success for many brewers to follow: Brew what you like to drink, and the people will come.  Grant was not afraid to be controversial; he made friends and some detractors by travelling around with a vial of hop oil and adding a dose of hops to any beer he deemed not hoppy enough (which in the 1980s was most of them).”
