A favorite brewery of mine is Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Very hoppy and fantastic beers and really cool brewery with a limited but very good menu ranks Ale Asylum near the top of my list. Ambergeddon is a hoppy beer with a nice amount of malt flavor. Madison, WI is only a 2-3 hour drive for Eastern Iowaners, so make the trip to Ale Asylum (www.aleasylum.com). On the drive up, stop in Potosi, Mount Horeb, and New Glarus, for some great beer.
Pour: Amber colored pour with nice white head.
Aroma: Smell of hops and malts.
Taste: Initial flavor of hops and the malts come in next. Good stuff!
Overall: Another strong beer from Ale Asylum. Like I said above, Wisconsin is making some awesome beers, make the trip up there and drink some really good stuff.
Eastern Iowa residents: This beer is available at all Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits, John’s Grocery, Benz Beverage Depot, and probably most liquor stores. Give it try!
