Clutch Brewing Company is dedicated to community, artistic collaboration, and craft beer of a slightly different ilk. Nestled on the mezzanine of the Keg & Case Market in the historic Schmidt Brewery complex, we share the re-imagined and revitalized keg house with other Saint Paul entrepreneurs dedicated to their craft.
We offer a unique selection of ales in a one of a kind space that boasts a tap lounge for comfortable social interactions, a mini museum dedicated to the history of one of Minnesota’s most iconic brewing landmarks, and a spectacular aerial view of the market below.
Clutch Brewing Company was hand built by the owners/brewers, and you can tell the same passion goes into every brew.
Cream Pale Ale
ABV: 5.5% / SRM: 5 / IBU: 36
A combination of barley, rice, maize, and oats provide a unique backdrop for the showcase of Cascade hops. This hybrid beer combines the grain bill of a cream ale and the hop bill of a pale ale. The result is a slight sweetness and lightly creamy mouthfeel to balance the citrusy grapefruit character of cascade hops.
American Mosaic IPA
ABV: 7% / SRM: 9 / IBU: 68
Definitely for the IPA lover at heart. Loads of citrus, pineapple, mango, and stone fruit with a clean bitterness and just enough body to balance. This IPA showcases all Mosaic hops!
Milk Stout ABV: 5.5% / SRM: 47 / IBU: 25
A full bodied Milk Stout that is smooth, flavorful, and ridiculously easy to drink. With just enough roast and coffee notes to help balance the sweetness of milk sugar.
Single Malt, Two Hop Ale ABV: 4.8% / SRM 3.5 / IBU: 26
Also known as “Our Lightest Beer”, SMATH #4 is the 4th installment of our Smathematics series. SMATHS are our take on SMASH beers, except instead of using one hop paired with a single malt, we use two! This SMATH features a couple of classics, Cluster and Chinook which are used in restraint to compliment Meredith 2-Row Barley Malt from Grainist Malt. This barley is grown on a small family farm in Wisconsin and malted by Breiss. This beer is very light, showcasing local malt with just a touch of piney an fruity overtones.
New England IPA ABV: 6.6% / SRM: 6 / IBU: 50
Now with extra fleeb juice! This hazy IPA is brewed with Citra, El Dorado, and Idaho 7 hops that throw a massive punch of tropical fruit flavor, including peach, pear, and pineapple!
Smoked Black IPA ABV: 7.5% / SRM: 31 / IBU: 57
This distinct IPA has a hint of smoke over a roasty malt backbone, providing a slight dryness that compliments the herbal bitterness of Columbus hops. This one will remind you of bonfires and bacon, while making you forget about the horrifying bacon bonfire of 75' . And yes, that is a fictitious and delicious event.
Biere de Garde ABV: 7.7%/ SRM: 18 / IBU: 27
This french style ale is clean but malty with hints of toast, biscuit, and toffee with waves of black currant. Named after an annual celebration of friends, music, and very large fires, Barnstomp was a way to stomp your feet in the barn to some fantastic bands until sun up.
We will fill any CLEAN 64 oz or 32 oz growler. Growlers are filled at the bar and are purged with Co2 but it is recommended that you enjoy your growler within 7 days of fill. We reserve the right to refuse any growler we feel is not clean or cleaned properly. We sell Clutch Brewing Company growlers if you don’t have your own.
Tips for cleaning growlers
Rinse with warm water immediately after emptying
Use a mix of dish soap and water to clean inside
Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry
Do NOT use bleach or any other strong chemical cleaning agents (Come on, no one likes that smell in their beer)
Soak growler in a mix of dish soap and water to break up any stubborn film if not rinsed right after enjoying the delicious beer within, and use a bottle brush to scrub clean, rinse, and admire the beautifully clean fruits of your labor
