In St. Louis Park, Minnesota is a small brewery kicking out some big flavor. The family-owned Steel Toe Brewery has been producing west-coast style American ales and unique interpretations of German, Belgian and English beers since opening its doors in 2011. However, it took a decade of carefully crafting a plan to make it come to fruition. It’s quite a story. Kudos and cheers to them, because it means more locally made in Minnesota beer for you.
Let’s get to the Steel Toe brews themselves. There are four mainstays and a seasonal offering.
While the size of the boot might be a bit small, the intensity of the hop flavor and aroma in Size 7 more than makes up for it. Steel Toe takes prodigious amounts of hops and adds them any chance they get to this Northwest style IPA.
