Seasonal and Limited Release Beers

We are constantly playing, er, ah working hard in the Brewhouse and using our brains, tongues and techniques to come up with new and interesting beers. You’ll find them appearing fleetingly on tap in our Tasting Room and at the some of the most selective bars and restaurants in the area. They often come unexpectedly and are gone before you know it. Check the What’s Brewing page for new and upcoming release information. Here are some of our seasonal and limited releases throughout the year.

2018 Raspberry Tambois

A tribute to our sometimes tart but always effervescent Tami, this tart and effervescent Belgian-style Framboise is actually brewed with yeast and bacteria cultures just like the spontaneously fermented beers of the Lambic region of West Flanders. We age this beer on a half-pound of raspberries for every pint! (Limited January Release - 8.0% ABV 8 IBUs) (Limited 22oz Bombers Available)

Rumpshaker IPA

Shake-it-baby-shake-it-baby-one-two! Just like food that has evolved into distinct local and regional variants over the years, beer styles have also diverged into sub-styles. One of our favorite recent regional discoveries is the New England IPA (NEIPA). Looking more like a milkshake than a beer, brazen turbidity and bright, juicy hops mark this style. Our version is a hazy non-fruited version. (Sesaonal March Release - 5.7% ABV 65 IBUs)

Smokin' Hemp Porter

Another Pearl Street original. This dark, smooth, and easy drinkin’ porter is made with cherry-wood smoked malt and toasted Canadian hemp seeds. When aged throughout the year, its flavor matures with time. (Limited 4/20 Release - 5.5% ABV 18 IBUs)

Pop Gose

New 4-part Seasonal Series. This sour spring ale has undergone spontaneous primary fermentation with native microbes found in the air in La Crosse, Wisconsin. This natural, terroir fermentation doesn't just create an inviting sourness, but also connects this beer to our land and our community. The complex flavor profile is built with lavender and hibiscus flowers, which are both tart and aromatic, while cucumbers lend a light, fresh taste. It's as refreshing as the spring thaw in Wisconsin. (Seasonal Spring Release - 5.3% ABV 3.5 IBUs)

17-UP Lemon Lime Gose

Originally brewed to celebrate 17 years of The Pearl Street Brewery, this is a tangy and refreshing conundrum. This sour summer ale has undergone spontaneous primary fermentation with native microbes found in the air in La Crosse, Wisconsin. This natural, terroir fermentation doesn't just create an inviting sourness, but also connects this beer to our land and our community. This particular Gose is flavored with natural lemon-lime essence for a mind-warping exbeerience. (Seasonal Summer Release - 5.3% ABV 3.5 IBUs)

Applefest AppleWeizen

For this fall seasonal, we partner our hefeweizen wheat ale with local, organic apples from our friends in La Crescent, the "Apple Capital of Minnesota." This creates a one-of-a-kind, tangy salute to the Autumn apple harvest! The locals enjoy it so much, it became the official beer of Applefest. (Seasonal Fall Release - 5.0% ABV 6 IBUs)

Lederhosen Lager Fest Bier

Come late September each year, we start feeling the Gemütlichkeit. It’s time to dust off our lederhosen and drink beer. Lederhosen Lager is our salute to La Crosse’s great German heritage and over 150 years of brewing tradition. Brewed with Pilsen and Vienna malts, true German lager yeast, and spiced with paired hops grown in Hallertau. You’ll find this amber beer to be smooth, malty, and easy drinking. Ein Prosit! (Seasonal Fall Release - 5.5% ABV 11 IBUs)

Funkadelicacy

Funkadelicacy is a part of our Funk My Life series in a succession of hand-made beers produced in our Funk Cellar in La Crosse, WI. This golden beer is brewed with barley and wheat malts. Fermented by the wild native yeasts and souring bacteria’s of the Upper Mississippi River Valley. We then add Brettanomyces Drie before we age it in white wine barrels, allowing it time to take up the character of the wood and develop complex layers of flavor. Pearl Street Brewery is a small, independent, and family-owned brewery. We proudly support our community and our extended communities. We work hand-in-hand with our local farm suppliers, creating true plow-to-pint beers. (Limited Release - 5.5% ABV 5 IBUs)

Community Harvest Ale

Seasonally brewed every fall with hops grown right here at the brewery, and from local crops donated by our customers. Every year is a little different, depending on how the growing season went. Some years it’s a bit more flavorful and has stronger hoppiness; other years it’s milder. (Limited Fall Release - 4.7% ABV 18 IBUs) We are currently collecting for this year's harvest. Bring us one pound of hops, and we will give you two pounds of beer. One 16oz. beer when you bring in your donated hops, and a second 16oz. beer when the Harvest Ale is brewed.

Gosecopia

This sour fall ale has undergone spontaneous primary fermentation with native microbes found in the air in La Crosse, Wisconsin. This natural, terroir fermentation doesn’t just create an inviting sourness, but also connects this beer to our land and our community. Fourth in our seasonal sour series, this Gose is flavored with natural guava, mango, and locally sourced cranberry for a bountiful exbeerience.   (Seasonal Fall Release - 5.3% ABV  3.5 IBUs)

Dankenstein IIPA

This freak of a beer is brewed with a monster mix of pure barley malts stitched together with a hodgepodge of the stinkiest hops we could find. This beer is determined to be quite dank with a starting gravity of 19.2 and colossal quadruple-hoppings in the brewkettle. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated for the freshest flavor. (Limited Fall Release - 10% ABV & 146 IBUs)

Breakfast Beer

Back by popular demand, this rich, amber cream ale is thick and malty. Infused with freshly roasted coffee beans from Bean Juice Coffee Roasters, this one will get you up in the morning and put you to bed at night. Yakima Valley Perle and Willamette round out the hop profile, while it gets its great malt backbone from North American Pale Ale, Honey malts, and Steel Cut Oats. (Seasonal Winter Release - 4.5% ABV  5 IBUs)

Sour Winter Gose

New 4-part Seasonal Series. This sour winter ale has undergone spontaneous primary fermentation with native microbes found in the air in La Crosse, Wisconsin. This natural, terroir fermentation doesn’t just create an inviting sourness, but also connects this beer to our land and our community. The brisk tangy backbone is a lot like the brisk Winter air around here. This beer also contains unrefined, ancient sea salt, fresh spruce tips harvested by our friends up in the mountains around Juneau, Alaska and the essential oil pressed from the skins of the rare Italian Bergamot orange. (Seasonal Winter Release - 5.3% ABV 3.5 IBUs)
