Our Newest Icon Mandarina Wheat is Now Available

As Icon Green rides off into the sunset, Icon Gold returns - this time as Mandarina Wheat, a hop forward and refreshing ale. It has a light pleasant American wheat beer base that shows off the Mandarina hop, an experimental German hop variety with orange notes on the nose, and a pronounced grapefruit flavor in the taste.

This golden slightly hazy beer has a nice creamy head with a lightly fruity aroma. The taste starts with a light hoppy bitter that carries through to the finish although never coming on too strong. The wheat malt provides a soft body that complements the hops while remaining light. The beer is highly refreshing with a nice hop finish that makes you want another sip.

Pub Nights at Saint Arnold

On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 - 10:00 PM strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase.

Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.

Each Pub Night, we'll have select Divine Reserves and Bishop's Barrels available, as well as the always awesome food from our kitchen. Check this page and our email newsletter to see the menu as each night approaches.
