What's On Tap

some notes about our brewing

Creating the best tasting, most unique and inventive beers will always be our top priority. All Birch’s Brewhouse beer is made in house on our 10 barrel system (1 barrel = 31 gallons). The only place you will be able to find our beer is at Birch’s on the Lake Brewhouse & Supperclub located at 1310 West Wayzata Blvd. We will never distribute our beer because we believe that fresh beer is best. Our motivation is not to grow as quickly as possible and make as much money as we can, we are motivated to make the best tasting beer that we can. Our beer will always remain extremely close to the source where the beer and draft lines can be monitored closely, and therefore will always be in peak condition when it hits your glass.

Our Brewmaster Brennan Greene is also one of our two owners and has spent the last decade learning everything there is to know about beer. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Brennan attended the World Brewing Academy, obtaining his international diploma in brewing technology. The WBA is a partnership between The Siebel Institute in Chicago, IL and Doemen’s Academy in Munich, Germany. After learning from experts from all around the world Brennan started as the brewer at The Schlafly Tap Room in St. Louis, Missouri in 2006. The Tap Room is Schlafly’s original brewpub location, which was transformed into a research pilot brewery after they opened a large production facility in 2003. Brennan brewed over 60 different styles of Schlafly beer each year, constantly coming up with new unique styles as well as emulating the best traditional styles of beer from all over the world. After working at Schlafly for several years he earned the title of Head Brewer. In 2015 Brennan decided to return to his hometown of Long Lake/Orono Minnesota to open his own brewery where he can brew all his favorite recipes that he has picked up during his travels. Creating fun tasty beers has always been Brennan’s passion, just talk with him for a few minutes and you’ll see what we mean.
