Twin Cities restaurant Red Cow and Stillwater’s Lift Bridge Brewing will release a collaboration beer, Red Rye IPA, on Sunday, Aug. 23 at Red Cow’s North Loop location during the Open Streets Downtown Minneapolis celebration.

According to a press release, Red Rye IPA, brewed in partnership with the Lift Bridge brew masters, Red Cow owner Luke Shimp and Red Cow’s in-house beer guru Grant Fabel, features a slight spice and peppery nose, rustic earthiness, undertones of citrus (grapefruit) hops and fresh cut pine with a light caramel and toast notes, yet not sweet. It’s soft on the palate, medium dry finish with light zest, and color is a rich amber-copper, reddish hue with an ivory head.

Red Cow North Loop will host a beer and cocktail garden in a nearby parking lot on the corner of 1st Ave. and Washington, from 11am–8pm, with food, yard games, DJ music and of course, ice cold beer. In addition to the new Red Rye IPA, Red Cow will also serve up 60/40 sliders, Double Barrel (two patties), Chips-n-French Onion Dip sliders, cocktails, Lift Bridge Farm Girl, Lift Bridge Hop Dish and Odell Easy Street Wheat. All beers will be available for $5. For more details, visit
