The Minnesota Brewery That Brought Us ‘Salted Nut Roll’ Beer To Close
Fans of the Saint Paul-based brewery Tin Whiskers, which gave Minnesota beer enthusiasts flavors like Salted Nut Roll Cream Ale, Barrel-Aged Mint Patties Stout, and Stay Puffed, announced via its social media page that they were going to be closing for good, at the end of May.
Dear Tin Whiskers Fans,
This message comes with a heavy heart.
For the last eight years we have worked to brew the best and most innovative beers we could come up with, but the decision has been made to power down the robot. We have fought hard to keep our brewery running and continue to make the beers you love to drink, but the brewery is no longer sustainable to keep going.
We will be open until the end of May and giving a true Minnesota goodbye. We would not have made it this far without the support from all of you. Thank you for that. Thank you for the opportunity to make some beers and share some memories.
We are going out the way we started; by brewing a beer. So Long, Goodbye is a Hazy IPA brewed with Sabro, Nelson Sauvin, Azacca, Simcoe, and Pineapple. We brewed it with the same intent we have on all our other beers; to push what can be done. Three dry hops with over 12lbs of hops per barrel for a massive flavor profile that will leave a lasting impression.
The brewery in its post online site that the business as it stands is "no longer sustainable to keep going".
But Tin Whiskers is going out like a true Minnesotan with the long goodbye and a beer with the same name, So Long, Goodbye which is an IPA.
