Ming ("Minnesota" in Chinese) is an Asian inspired Ale based on the Chinese character 明, which translates to “Clarity.” Made with rice, sticky rice, pilsner malt and a dash of orange peel, it is light in color and body, features a crisp clean malt profile with bready accents. Ming is lightly hopped with a delicate and refreshing aroma and is perfectly paired with a wide range of cuisines from around the world.
Taste the fruits of our obsession.
We started out with Silvius, a unique BPA. Then we moved on to Thoprock, a hop-rocking, Belgian-style IPA. Hoodoo, a spellbinding dubbel. And Brimstone, a powerful tripel. Those four beers established Boom Island as Minnesota’s premier craft brewery that exclusively, and obsessively, focuses on Belgian-style beers.
But as obsessions go, we were just getting rolling. As you’ll see here, our range of beers has grown right along with our passion for the Belgian tradition of brewing. Use this guide to get a virtual taste of our different beers. Then look for them in your favorite establishments, or enjoy them with us in our taproom, The Boom Room.
