Featured in the Wild Ale Sale, taste the line up on Friday, May 11! Locally brewed and Belgian born, Boom Island is putting their own twist on classic Belgian styles. Kevin Welch, the founder and brewer, was inspired to start this beer journey from his first taste of a Belgian Tripel. From there Kevin began to research Belgian brewing, yeast strains and eventually concluded that a trip to the source would be the best way to learn and taste. His brewing process and the ingredients used in Boom Island beer have been influenced by his love for Belgian beers and his knowledge on the subject. The beer you know and love from the brewery has a shorter history in Minneapolis but is deeply rooted in Belgian tradition and that makes the beer taste so good.
