Tin Whiskers Brewing Co.
Tin Whiskers is on a mission to make Artfully Engineered Beers, and is the perfect place for beer-nerds and non-nerds alike. We bring our electrical engineering background into the brewery with our beer names, our scientific approach to the brewing process, and our branding -- including circuit board flight holders.
For the thirsty, we have year-round beers, seasonal offerings, and prototype "Fourier Series" small batch recipes available in the taproom. Whether our beers are a creation of our brewing masterminds or a collaboration with others in the industry, we promise to always have something on tap you will love, whether it’s for a pint or a whole flight.
Engineered for Freshness
We take great pride in crafting high quality beer. Our beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized, and are therefore ‘alive’ with yeast and good bacteria. These components continue to flourish even after the beer has been canned, resulting in beer that is best enjoyed fresh. We regularly visit our retailers to be sure that all of our beer can be purchased and consumed while the beer is at its freshest.
Freshness windows (from packaging date) for our flagship beers are:
Flip Switch IPA: 3 months
Wheatstone Bridge: 4 months
Short Circuit Stout: 6 months
It’s a good idea to check the packaging date of all beer you buy to be sure you’re getting a product in its prime. We do our best to keep our cans fresh, but if you see a 4-pack beyond its freshness window, please let the staff at your liquor store know so we can replace it with a fresh one!
We at Tin Whiskers are made up of a great team that love what we do. Check out our monthly featured staff member!
One "devoted connection" to beer.
Jeff Moriarty and his two founding partners met at the University of MN. Electrical Engineering Degrees in hand, they found themselves working together for a small engineering services company in downtown Minneapolis. Frequently unable to resist the allure of the 11-6 happy hour (we're looking at you Bar 508 and Pizza Luce) they found themselves with plenty of time to discuss craft beer and how it relates to Life, the Universe and Everything. As engineers, the great interplay between the art and science of brewing beer was a topic of conversation they could never quite shake.
On May 2nd 2015, Tin Whiskers kicked off Season 2 of Taproom Travlers; a webseries devoted to uncovering the best Midwest breweries! Check out our webisode here:
In an After Hours Special, Taproom Travlers follows head brewer Derek Brown on a behind the scenes look at his process for brewing some of the best craft beer in the Twin Cities.
