"I just tried the "new" Brewer's Cave Black Barley Ale. Very tasty! It has great color and smell. The flavor was rich but not bitter. Great beer taste. It left a good after taste and my desire for another. Do you know when they will be selling this in stores?"

Reply: It is quite a few stores already. David, go into your local store and ask for it, 9 out of 10 stores will put it in stock.


Roasted Black Barley Ale begins with a Hand-Crafted mixture of Barley, Carmel Carapils, Roasted Barley and Black Barley Malt...Then our Master Brewers blend in Cascade and Brewers Gold Hops. Beer enthusiasts will enjoy its deep nutty flavor and Chestnut roasted hue. Brewed the same as in the 1800's with hand-selected fresh ingredients and the time honored tradition from the legendary cave brewery.  

Brewer's  Cave Legend

In 1855. upon discovering pristine natural springs and an abundance of cool, underground caves in St Paul, Minnesota, a young Bavarian brewer named Christopher Stahlmann built the legendary Cave Brewery. To achieve the wonderfully subtle and complex taste of his  brews, Stahlmann's brewing process included hand-selecting the very finest malt, barley and hops...roasting them in special ovens and to transform them into a variety of beer styles and tastes. The overwhelming demand for his been forced Stahlmann to develop a system of brewing caves that were three levels deep and a mile wide which  still exist beneath St Paul, MN  today.

By 1880 Minnesota ranked fith in the nation in beer production, with 112 breweries. St. Paul, with 12 breweries, was the hub of regional brewing activity, led by Stahlmann Cave Brewery, which grew to become the state's largest brewer in the late 1800s. A favorite not only in Minnesota, but in neighboring states as well. Although we no longer use the caves to age our been, we carry on the time-honored brewing traditions Christopher Stahlmann established for the Cave Brewery over a century ago. The water today comes from the crystal clear spring waters bubbling up in Cold Spring, MN. The natural spring waters discovered in 1874 requires no additional filtration and is considered by some to be the most purified water in Minnesota.

Minnesota has the ideal natural brewing resources, climate and soil suited for growing barley, ample fresh water supply; and cool, natural caves available for aging German Lager-Style Beer and the freshest ingredients in the New World. This attracted "Old World Brewers" like Christopher Stahlmann to Minnesota. The same assets are valued by our Head Brewmaster, Sig Plagens. German-born and trained in the art of European brewing just as the brewing pioneers that preceded him. In honor of Christopher Stahlmann's cave-brewing legacy, we offer our handcrafted specialty beers from the land of blue diamonds at Brewers Cave. The intensity, personal attention and expertise demanded of traditional cave-brewers are proudly built into every brew that is now produced at Brewer's Cave Brewery. Christopher Stahlmann would  not have it any other nor would Sig Plagens!
