Thoprock

Belgian-style IPA

The assertive hop bitterness of this Belgian-style IPA is balanced by a clear malty backbone. It finishes with the flowery, citrus flavor of West Coast hops. Its deceptive 8% abv is achieved through a special Belgian fermentation process.

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.
