🚨 New beer alert! Hackator Doppelbock 🚨

Our take on a traditional German Doppelbock. Hackator is bready, with notes of toffee, caramel and slight plum and raisin notes. This Doppelbock (double Bock) style is a bigger and stronger version of the lower-gravity German-style bock beers. It’s as smooth as it is strong at 7.9% ABV. 

This beer is traditionally brewed during the Lenten season by monks for sustenance while fasting—they referred to it as “liquid bread”. So come on in and drink like a monk! 

Polo shirts are so last milennia…wouldn’t you rather be Happy? 👕 🏒 

Our new line of Happy Gilmore-inspired tshirts are in! Why rock the polo horse when you could give it a little tappy instead? Nothing goes together quite like golf, hockey, Sandler…and HBC beer. 

It’s all in the hips.
Fresh new looks for women this spring! 🌸 

We’ve just received two new colors of tank tops and crop tops for you to sport. These lightweight, super soft fabric shirts are perfect for walks, the gym, or just lounging around the house. Stop on by the taproom and pick one up for you, or a friend, or both! 👚

#croptop #tanktop #merch #hackamorebrewing
Freshen up your golf look for spring! ⛳️ 

Whether you hit the links five days a week, or none at all, we’ve got some killer @travismathew gear in stock just in time for the warmer weather ahead! Fresh new co-branded HBC and Travis Mathew hats and tshirts are available, so come on by. 

Take a swing on the simulator while you’re at it. 🏌️‍♀️

As a reminder, our next golf league starts March 1st with registration due by February 29th! Make sure to email us at to be entered into the league.
We had a blast today @oakridgemn for Bockfest! Beer poking, camp fires, games and killer food! 🍻

“Ok. I’ll tell you!! Do you know the Muffin Man?”

Our brewers have been down in the dungeon concocting our latest blueberry muffin beer that’ll make anyone confess. It’s loaded with 90lbs of real blueberries and brewed with lactose to give it that sweetness and a thicker, creamy mouthfeel. 

“Do You Know the Muffin Man” is sure to be a crowd favorite in the taproom. Coming in at 5.0% ABV, this Blueberry Muffin Ale is a smooth sipper. 

So, run, run, run as fast as you can!

And if you can’t make it out today, stop by our tent at the Winter Dabbler this Saturday (2/24) as we will have a special release of it at 4pm.

No. 14, our flagship American Light Lager is back on tap! 🇺🇸 

No. 14 - is one of our most approachable beers. Named for the number our grandfather wore, No. 14 is light and crisp just like the beer he would drink. Made with Pilsner malts and other specialty ingredients, and lightly hopped with German hops, this beer is light on body but full of flavor. 

This beer pairs perfectly with tinkering in the garage, after a long day at work, or at the dinner table. Think a craft version of Coors Light or Busch Light when crushing this brew. This is beer-flavored-beer at its best!

ABV: 4.1% / IBU: 8

Welcome to the Dark Side…

Our new Lager glasses are in, just in time to enjoy a fresh Black Lager on the side-pull. That red Hackamore label really contrasts well with our “This is a House of Learned Doctors.” Come on in and try a pint this weekend!

Use the Schwarz, Luke! 🍻
Our friends @minnesotaawesome designed these cool shirts that our brewer Tom likes to rock!

Minnesota Awesome is an “awesome” local company that specializes in all things Minnesota when it comes to merch. Their MN Brewery Shirt Club is a monthly subscription service that celebrates Minnesota breweries. Each month you receive a box with a new shirt, decal, bio, and a coupon from different Minnesota breweries. There’s no commitment, and you can cancel anytime. 

Give this awesome crew a look! As you can tell, their shirts are brewer-approved. And yes, Tom just happened to be wearing this shirt yesterday. 🤣
🚨 New Beer Alert! 🚨 This is a House of Learned Doctors - Black Lager

Did we just become best friends? Yup! Do you wanna go do karate in the garage? Yup! Just like these Step Bros you will become best friends with our new delicious Black Lager. The light roastiness pairs perfectly with cocoa and toffee flavors, while drinking refreshingly light. This beer has been called the songbird of its generation. 

Available on the side-pull.

5.4% ABV / 24 IBU
Can Crusher - Cream Ale

One of our most approachable beers and another member of our flagship series. 

Here at Hackamore, we learned the value of a buck crushing cans for our grandfather. Hot summer days with bag upon a bag of cans was commonplace during our childhood. Lightly kilned malts with a hefty dose of corn give this beer a satisfying full body while still being crushable. This beer goes great with all those chores you have to get done. 

ABV: 5.3% / IBU: 12

#creamale #ale #hackamore #beerlife
Potbelly - Oatmeal Stout

Growing up, our grandparents raised many animals, including potbelly pigs. This beer is named for them. The finest British malts are combined with chocolate and caramel malts. A dash of oats and roasted malts give Potbelly a robust flavor with a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. We won’t ask for your help in the barn if you’re drinking this beer. 😉 

Potbelly is another one of our five flagships that will always be around. 

ABV: 5.8% / IBU: 30

We’ve got a burst of color to brighten up your winter blues!

These tropical island hats are the perfect look to pop some color in your life. The lightweight flower-patterned fabric says, “I bring Hawaii with me everywhere I go!” A perfectly stitched Hackamore Brewing logo blends in seamlessly on the front, with a one-size-fits-most adjustable Velcro closure on the back. Available in these two colors!

Time to visit the taproom and rock the island life!
Let’s Go Hazy - New England IPA

Our NEIPA in the Flagship Series is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser. We’d be remiss if we didn’t have a beer to honor “The Purple One” here in Chanhassen, MN.

A New England IPA brewed with Sabro and Strata hops. This beer has a soft mouthfeel and a hoppy backbone that might just make you go delirious. So, Let’s Go Hazy, and party like it’s 1999! 💜

ABV: 6.7% / IBU: N/A

Enjoy one of our most popular flagships! Grandma’s Kitchen Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Sour! 🍓

Savor one of our crowd favorites today!

He’s a ten foot tall beastman who showers in vodka and feeds his baby shrimp scampi. He once ranked 18th in the AP College Football Poll. He scissor-kicked Angela Lansbury and framed Roger Rabbit!

I tell ya, he’s a big fella. He’s smooth and strong just like this Pale Ale brewed with Azacca, Citra and El Dorado hops. Toss in some English yeast to fatten the body and enhance the fruits notes. 

So let’s raise our glasses! To Bill Brasky!!! 🥃

Raise a pint, and give back. 😇🍻 

This is our latest collaboration with our friends at Feed My Starving Children. We brewed a Cream Ale and aged it on Guatemalan coffee beans. Light in color and full of coffee flavor, this beer is deceptively smooth. So grab a pint, take a sip and sit back.

Every pint served of our Coffee Cream Ale will provide one meal for a child in need. So, tell your friends, and let’s do something good together. 😇

☁️ Prepare yourselves for ABØV, our new house-made NA Golden Ale. ☁️ 

This entirely new NA beer was designed and made in-house by our expert brewers, just in time for Dry January. 

Our NA Golden Ale is made with Amarillo and Cascade hops. It’s light, refreshing and oh so crushable. Best of all, since it was brewed by us, there is no back-processing which allows for a creamy head and some of the best NA taste you have ever had. 

It’s an NA beer that tastes like beer. So, come on in and rise ABØV other NAs. 

ABV: <0.5%

Not all collabs are created equal…

We teamed up with our good friends @willas_kitchen to create one epic Stout. Introducing Willa’s Chocolate Oat Milk Stout. 

Our latest collaboration involves like-minded businesses making waves locally, and nationally. 

Willa’s offered us a stock of their Chocolate Oat Milk, made with @raakachocolate, for use in a beer, and we couldn’t pass it up. This lactose-free, vegan-friendly, dark chocolate Stout is rich and decadent. It has a creaminess you’ll find in traditional sweet Stouts. We used heaps of English malts and multiple additions of chocolate to boost the awesomeness of Willa’s Chocolate Oat Milk. 

Winter is coming, and this is the perfect pairing to ring in the season.

Chocolate. Creamy. Smooth. Sweet… 6.0% ABV

🍻Give It A Little Tappy Double IPA is back by popular demand! “Just tap it in!”🍻
