Olvalde Farm and Brewing Company is a small, traditional brewery located on a family farm in Rollingstone, Minnesota. We aim to craft fine ales that honor ancient brewing traditions and culture.
Ale is a beverage made from the fermentation of cereal grains, accompanied in ancient times by other fermentable materials such as honey and tree saps. We aim to create ales that focus on the flavors of the fermentation, accentuate the flavor of the source material, and use herbs and spices only as complements. To this end, our ales are warm conditioned on their lees, unfiltered, and refermented in the bottle.
Tours /Taproom? No, not currently.

Ale from the Old Vale is an English-inspired ale brewed with hops and native herbs grown on our farm. Big herby aroma with a bitter/sweet balance provided by the hops and sweet herbs.
Rise of the Burghers is a sour herbal beer inspired by the medieval free commercial brewers of northern Europe. I use a mixture of grains and herbs to produce this unique ale.
