Iowa Beer Buzz | Peace Tree Hulu Hop, Jesus on a Coconut and Confluence NE IPA

First, some unfortunate news. Van Houzen Brewing in Tiffin Iowa is closing its doors. The nano brewery announced the closure on their Facebook page captured below:

Now, some new beer news. Peace Tree will release a new IPA made with all Iowa hops at the taprooms this Friday at 4pm. The Iowa hops are grown in Cambridge, Iowa, and this beer includes Soraci Ace, Centennial and Chinook. Peace Tree lists this beer at 5.5% ABV with a whopping 90 IBUs.

Soon, more accounts will have tasty Big Grove IPAs available. Per their Twitter, seven new accounts will carry Arms Race Pale Ale, Trident and Minuteman IPA. Look for the announcement next Friday.

This Friday (12/15), get your Jesus on. Exile will release Jesus on a Forklift, their annual barrel-aged Rye Imperial Stout. Starting at 4pm, you can get a taste of the new Jesus and there's pours of 2016 Jesus along with '16 Jesus on a Coconut and Yeezus (the base beer before meeting the barrel).

One of Iowa's most popular breweries announces the release of a new NE Style IPA available in their taproom now. This beer is super fruity with Citra and Hull Melon hops. It's a mild 6% ABV and 59 IBU.

Again, this Friday, West O will release a new double honey and hibiscus Saison. It's a solid 8.5% ABV and described as a "winter warmer." It looks tasty.

The date for the latest brewery release of BA Big Yin and Martin Shkreli hasn't been announced yet but it has to be soon. The Alluvial Twitter account teased the bottle labels so don't surprised if the release is next week.

Lion Bridge released a new version of Workman's Compensation tonight at the taproom. Compensation with Merlot Grape Skins combines Workman's Comp and 80 pounds of Merlot grape skins and whiskey barrels.

Also today, 515 Brewing launched Numb Nut a spiced Brown Ale. Perhaps, perfect for Christmas, this 5.7% ABV Brown is brewed with cinnamon and allspice.
