IBB IPAPA March Bracket Round 1 | #4 Toppling Goliath Fire, Skulls and Money Vs. #13 Barn Town Whats-A-Ma-Name-It

Barn Town, like Pulpit Rock, has a chance to get two of their own beers to face off in the semi-finals but BT has to get by a new, shiny star from Toppling Goliath to do it. This Central Iowa bracket match-up has BT's newest hazy concoction as a heavy underdog. Vote for your favorite below to see which beer moves on to round two.




#4 TOPPLING GOLIATH FIRE, SKULLS AND MONEY

How it got here: FSM was a new beer from TG, released in March of 2017. It was almost immediate that it became one of the state's best IPAs and finished 4th on my list of Iowa's best IPAs in 2017. It's a beautiful marriage of Citra, Mosiac, Galaxy and Nelson hops over an unfiltered hazy soup that resembles a NE Style IPA. It's a perfect 7% ABV and Untappd users love this at 4.31 bottle caps with nearly 10,000 check-ins.

Availability: Released in bomber format and on taps mid-February across Iowa and at the TG taproom.


VS.


#13 BARN TOWN WHATS-A-MA-NAME-IT IPA

How did it get here: Originally, the IBB committee had BT's Pulp Non-Fiction slotted for this spot until the beer ran out and was replaced by Whats-A-Ma-Name. This is the newest in a line of hazy, hopped up beers from Barn Town released January 26th, 2018. This beer sits right at 6% ABV and hits all the fruit notes with Citra and Simcoe hops. In a short period, this beer has recorded over 250 Untappd check-ins and sits at 4.05 bottle caps.

Available: Check the Barn Town taproom or The Hall, el Bait Shop or The Iowa Taproom.
