This past weekend my wife and I were traveling to Dike for a fundraiser and decided to set some time aside to travel to downtown Cedar Falls to visit SingleSpeed Brewery. I had never been to SingleSpeed but only had their white IPA at a beer festival, which I found refreshing, so I was looking forward to checking out another Iowa brewery.
Downtown Cedar Falls is quite lovely, my first trip, local shops and restaurants and best of all…a brewery. Very quaint and comfortable upon entering with quite a few people getting growler fills to take home and enjoy on what was a hot Saturday afternoon. I didn’t have time to take a tour or eat but I was able to get a flight of brews.
Here’s what we tried:
*Brewed X2 – imperial coffee brown ale
*Victory Dance – IPA with citrus and tropical flavor. Very refreshing.
*Tip the Cow – espresso milk stout.
*Mosaic – single hop series brew.
All were very enjoyable. Really dug the Victory Dance and could have enjoyed quite a few of those but the star to me was the Mosaic! Part of their Single hop Series, this pale ale showcased the tropical fruitiness of this great hop! Loved this beer, very drinkable!
Single Speed will be opening up another brewery in what was the Wonder Bread building in Waterloo. I believe they will still operate out of their Cedar Falls brewery as well. More on the new brewery here.
An overall fun albeit quick trip to this brewery. Very excited for their future and what they will offer when the new brewery is complete. Would love some of that Victory Dance and more from the Single Hop Series. Well done SingleSpeed, excited for my next trip to Cedar Falls!
