When Inbound Brewco opened in North Loop neighborhood earlier this year, they promised to create unique small batch beers. And they kept that promise. As our Bitter Minnesota Beer of the Week, we’re highlighting one of those unique creations: Dampfbier (pronounced “dumm-pff-beer”).

Dampfbier, or “steam beer“, is a warm-fermented ale that produces copious amounts of foam and bubbles on the surface. As these surface bubbles burst, they give the appearance that the ferment is boiling, even “steaming.” Are you intrigued yet?
