  • Beers on Tap

    Serving you tasty flavors in three Sylvan beer categories:

    Comfy, Crafty, and Crazy.

    Comfy beers are the easier-drinkers, usually with a lower ABV.

    Crafty beers are more robust in flavor and ABV but still familiar to most.

    Crazy beers are outside the norm and allow us to let loose a little.

  • Delicious craft beer in the comfort of your own home!

    A great and safe way to enjoy delicious beer in the comfort of your own home and support your local small brewery is by purchasing growlers. These reusable 64-ounce vessels allow you to take home four pints of fresh Sylvan beer. We will fill your clean growler or purchase one of ours. We have two growler options: amber glass ($5 to purchase the glass) or a gorgeous stainless steel option ($50) that will keep your brew cold up to 24 hours or a hot beverage warm up to 12 hours. Fills range from $15-25 depending on the beer. These also make great gifts!

    Curbside service? Absolutely!
    Call 507-467-HOPS (4677)

    during open hours

    You can come in for growlers to-go or, if you prefer, we are more than happy to do curbside service for new growler purchases - just call ahead during open hours. For fills of a growler you already own, bring it on in (make sure it's clean); you can either wait for the fill or come back to pick it up inside or curbside.


    When you arrive to pick up your growlers, park alongside the fence, call us, and we'll bring it out.


    How to care for your beer and growler:

    • Keep your filled growler out of heat and direct sunlight. Refrigerate it as soon as possible to maximize the beer's quality. Unopened, the beer is at its best when the growler is opened within 3 days. After opening, you'll want to consume it within hours to a day.
    • Always thoroughly rinse the growler with warm water as soon as it's empty. Toss the old cap and allow the growler to air dry.
