Iowa Beer Buzz | Assassin Release, Peace Tree Lager and the Good Beer Festival



TOPPLING GOLIATH-

Stay tuned next week as Toppling Goliath will announce release details for 2018 Assassin. The release date is set for March 31st. There's also Assassin variants planned for the taps at the (assumed) new facility. I'll have a full post once the details are available.

PEACE TREE- 

Some cool news from Peace Tree. A new lager will debut on shelves in Iowa in the next couple weeks. It's a lager beer coming in at just under 5% ABV. I'll let their tweet provide the additional details.


RIVER RIDGE-

The Bellevue, Iowa, brewery has a new IPA released the first of the year. There's not a lot of info on Untappd or elsewhere regarding the hop/malt recipe so bear with me. Looks good though.


5 ALARM BREWING-

Here's another opening of a new brewery in Iowa. This one's up North in Lake Mills, right off the math to Minneapolis. It's a collection of volunteer firemen, hence the name. Get a taste January 11th at 4:00 pm.

RECLAIMED RAILS-

The Bondurant brewer has a NE Style IPA called Hipster Juice 2.0 released January 3rd. It's the second version of their Hipster Juice and this includes Citra and Mosiac hops. It's listed at 5.1% ABV, just over a session ale. Looks good.


FAT HILL-

Fat Hill released new Cherrywood Saison yesterday at the taproom. Again, I'll let their tweet do the talking.


GOOD BEER FESTIVAL-

Sample several Iowa beers Saturday January 13th at the Foundry in West Des Moines. The Good Beer Festival  moved to West Des Moines this year for the 3rd annual fest. Tickets are somewhat limited so get yours in advance. The Hall/Foundry is a cool place and you should download their app in advance and order from the food trucks that will likely be available.

 DISTRO NEWS-

Finally, some Bell's Hop Slam details are emerging. Looks like Iowa is slated to receive distribution the week of January 15th.

Also,


More on that as we get closer to February.
