The Yawkey trails made Cuyuna an overnight mountain bike success with the downhill “scream for joy” flow of Bob Sled and the technical “don’t-look-down” terrain of Timber Shaft.
However, that’s just half of what makes Yawkey unmatched. Tom Yawkey owned both the Yawkey Mine and the Boston Red Sox. He and his wife, Jean, reconstructed Fenway Park and made the Boston Red Sox thrive. We’re not kidding—you can’t make up stories this good.
From the hallowed halls of Fenway Park to the red dirt trails of Cuyuna, we salute the Yawkeys with the naming of our flagship red ale. Much like the Red Sox, Yawkey Red ain’t no typical red, nor typical place. Expect all those malty, earthy flavors to hit it out of the park and you’ll know you truly have a historic pint in your hand.
Here’s to an amazing story, an amazing place, and getting your socks red every time you shred Cuyuna’s red.
In Cuyuna's industrial past, gigantic machines called crushers turned bedrock boulders into usable material for America's iron industry. When something’s been through the crusher, you know it. One of Cuyuna’s famous mountain bike trails is also named Crusher. When cyclists ride up Crusher, they know it.
Our Crusher IPA is made with Citra hops which gives this IPA a distinct flavor and aroma.
When you taste the Crusher, you’ll know it.
Full of flavor.
What we love about a Ranger is they are brilliant in clarity. Meaning, if a Ranger is thinking something, you’ll know it. We don’t get too flowery in language and prefer to speak directly.
As we created a name for our Strong Bitter (ESB), Ranger Strong was an undeniable match for its characteristics that embody not only our beer, but our people.
A bit nutty. :)
High in mineral content.
Here’s to being who we are.
Here’s to welcoming new people, new stories, and making new history, together.
Here’s to a strong community, united.
Silver Dollar Lager
Silver Dollar is named for the city of Trommald’s outpost country bar made famous for its heel-kicking, hip-swinging, country music dance parties back in Cuyuna’s
The legend of the Silver Dollar inspired our golden Festbier, which has the initial appearance of a light beer, but—wait for it—it’s been known to pack a punch. Silver Dollar Lager is bright and clear and, better yet, it’s also highly drinkable and smooth. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the conclusion of an outdoor adventure or just another day at the office.
Here’s to staying light on your feet and always having a reason to dance.
In 1957, astronaut David Simons set a record of high-altitude balloon flight by rising more than 100,000 feet above Cuyuna. Called “Project Manhigh,” the balloon and capsule launched out of the Portsmouth Mine in Crosby. The Manhigh II space experiment was the precursor to what would eventually become NASA.
Think about it. Nineteen miles—101,516 feet—above earth. Pretty black, pretty overwhelming, and pretty darn close to being out of this world. Here’s hoping you have a similar experience with each sip of our Manhigh Stout.
We salute you, space pioneers. Godspeed.
