Tallgrass Brewing is at it again as joining their new farmhouse ale on the shelves is going to be a robust porter called Zombie Monkey. Not only is this great news as porters seem to be playing second fiddle style-wise, rumor has it that this canned brew will come with a tactile grip on the can!
Many people have been asking questions about updates on breweries hitting the Eastern Iowa market, and while news has been slow but rumblings still persist. One brewery I had heard about is Alaskan Brewery so I reached out to them and here is what I received in return:
It is true that we’re looking at our expansion options for 2014. This year, we successfully filled in one hole in our distribution by beginning to sell in New Mexico, which is great. So, we’re hoping that we can do something equally cool in 2014, possibly Iowa, possibly Illinois. We’ll see. In the meantime, stay excited. We’ve got a great Pumpkin Porter being released in our Pilot Series in a few weeks!Cheers,Alaskan Brew Crew
