Welcome to the third edition of Bitter Minnesota Beer of the Week – NorthGate Brewing Get Together!

This week, we talk to our friends at NorthGate Brewing, taproom manager Jim Olson and co-owner Adam Sjogren about Get Together, their recommendation for a great summer beer.

Describe the beer, taste, IBU, ABV, etc., and tell us a bit about the brewery and yourself?

NorthGate Brewing Get Together is an American session IPA; 4.4% ABV and 50 IBU. Enjoy it  anytime you need to “get together with old friends and new adversaries.”

NorthGate Brewing began distribution in January, 2012 as a Northeast Minneapolis brewery focused on English styles and session beer. Wall’s End English Brown Ale leads the malt-forward, well-balanced menu of regular and seasonal options, while American and other styles (including Get Together) can usually be found in The Pub, NorthGate’s tap room, as well as on numerous taps and at retailers around the Twin Cities metro. Sporting a brand-new outdoor seating area, foosball, and weekday happy hours & events, patrons of The Pub find a fun and comfortable space to check out what Session brew is all about.
