The idea behind the name is simple. By definition, an alloy is a mixture of metals and elements. Alloys are created to make something better or stronger. The brewing process is similar, as the specific blends of malted barley, hops, water and yeast create something unique and more delicious than the ingredients could ever hope to be on their own. Alloy Brewing Company strives to achieve the dream of “Making the unrefined, exceptional”.
How good is good?
The Alloy Team has brewed close to 100 batches of beer together and they constantly tweak old favorites and try out new recipes. For inspiration, Alloy regularly tastes new beers from both local and national craft beer makers, and seek out new and different sources for flavor palates. They actively seek input from friends, family and co-workers and enter brewing competitions around the great state of Minnesota.
Alloy’s first award came at the 2015 Minnesota State Fair. Since that time, awards have continued to pour in. With 16 awards under their belt in categories ranging from stouts, European lagers and even fruit beer, the team has a great basis to review scores and feedback to understand both the consumer and judge’s view of what worked and what didn’t. This helps improve the quality of the beer and determine which recipes would be well received when served in the taproom.
Home Sweet Home
With brewery plans underway and awards starting to line the walls, the team started looking at possible locations. It quickly became obvious that the north metro is an underserved market – the Alloy team members live in the area and we want to create a taproom that our neighboring community can experience and enjoy. In particular, the city of Coon Rapids distinguished itself as welcoming, gracious and open to exploring a new type of business venture. They have worked closely with us to remove barriers and form the codes and laws that would allow Alloy to operate within city limits.
