Pequod News: Here’s what’s coming from Fairstate, Untitled Art, Humble Forager, Weldwerks, Wild Mind, and Modist!

The huge news in Iowa the last few weeks is the huge news of Pequod Distribution and the breweries that they will be bringing to Iowa. With a wonderfully popular portfolio the plan for distribution deliveries is the DSM market getting Tuesday/Wednesday drops and Eastern Iowa Thursday/Fridays! With that being said, here’s what’s in store from the breweries mentioned in the title above! Some in cans and some in kegs, check it out! Cheers!:

Big Doinks – Extra Dank IPA
Big Doinks is a love letter to all that we enjoy about West Coast IPAs. We’ve refined its essence down to a pure expression of resinous dankitude. We cut out the crystal malt and dialed back the bitterness from “way too much” to “hey, this is actually bitter and I like it!” levels, slammed it with our hand-selected lot of Columbus cryo, and fermented it nice and dry. It’s great, you should try it.

Crankin’ Foamers – American Lager – Collab w/Modern Times BrewingWe love lagers and we’re pretty damn happy this collab with @moderntimes is back. Foamers is made the old-fashioned way– with a cereal mash and extended lagering times for off-the-charts crispiness.

Flavor Pop Technology – Hazy IPA, 6.8% ABV
This is an IPA brewed with a couple hop varieties intended to maximize a big citrus/tropical pop. This second batch builds on the first iteration of the trial blend from YCH, with a more final product. This will be a hop blend that is targeted at active ferm dry-hopping, and available in market in 2021. 

Foamers LimeFoamers Lime was intended as a special offering for an eatery in Minneapolis, with a keg or two hitting our taproom… Then a pandemic hit and eviscerated all planned activities. We were left with an abundance of this unbelievably refreshing beer that soon became a favorite among our guests and staff. Flip the album over and here we are in 2021, with Foamers Lime back on tap and 12-packs of this new favorite on the shelves.

Heckin’ Chonker – Barrel aged Stout w/VanillaBourbon 🥃 Barrel Aged Pastry Stout with Vanilla, Heckin’ Chonker and Whiskey 🥃 & Red Wine 🍷 Barrel Aged Stout

Main Boss – Cocktail inspired Pastry Stout – Collab w/ Pulpit RockMain Boss is a brand-new collaboration with our friends from @prbrewing Inspired by mutual love of tropical rum drinks, this stout is infused with tons of coconut, molasses (for the rum notes), and our own house-made Orgeat syrup, a staple for classic rum drinks composed of almonds and citrus. It’s a big stout, but with a tropical twist.

MIRROR UNIVERSEThis Double Dry Hopped Hazy IPA is brewed with wheat, oats, and far too many Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops.

Party ForwardWe brewed Party Forward with the finest wheat, oats, and Citra tropical hops. It’s soft, super fruity, and packed with bright tropical fruit notes. It’s a lively, easy-drinking IPA and packs quite a punch for being 6% ABV.

PilsThe Fancy Beer that Fine Folks Choose. To us, Pils is classic and fancy. While we loved the green can, we felt like it underestimated what was inside. This is the same great Pils you knew before, but with a reminder that we brew “Only the Highest Quality for You”.

Roselle
It’s good for chilly days and great for warm days.
Bright, tart, floral, with a dry finish. It’s as refreshing as it is pink.

Mysterious Ravine – Tart Fruit IPASweet, tart and mildly bitter. Bursting with Passion fruit aroma, waves of fresh tangerine followed by fruity zebra stripe gum notes.

Humble Bumble – Buzzed Seltzer 
Made with calamansi, Blood Orange, Tangerine, Orange blossom honey, Staghorn sumac blossom 5% ABV. If you think Untitled Art’s florida seltzers are good, wait until you try this one!

Western Skyline V1 – West Coast Double IPA 
Balanced, clean, bitter, best describes this crisp and crushable West Coast DBL IPA. Saturated with Classic hoppy notes reminiscent of misty coniferous forests.

Raspberry Mango Vanilla Smoothie seltzer thingy – Omnipollo CollabJust like the last time (Tropical Smoothie Seltzer) this one is F-ing Incredible. It might break the scoreboard – see untappd ratings for last version. Untapp’d Ratings are through the roof Link

Fruit medley – Imp Seltzer Collab with 8th State brewing
9% ABV Imperial Hard Seltzer brewed with Soursop, Cranberry, Boysenberry, Guava & Limes

Trail Mix imp stout – Humble Forager collab
This 10% Imperial Stout has a little bit of everything: sweet, salty, fruity, nutty, and chocolate. We blended all of the trail mix ingredients to give you a flavor reminiscent of the famous snack with the added bonus of the booze. Kick back this weekend with this campfire!

Mangorindo – Sour Wheat Ale brewed with Mango, Tamarind and Lime Purees
Inspiration for our beers can come from a multitude of different places, but some of our favorites, are inspired by our own staff. Drawing from their own cultural experiences, Alonzo, one of our taproom ambassadors, teamed up with Luz, one of our packaging team members to ideate on a beer that would reflect familiar flavors from their roots in Mexico.
“A lot of Mexican candy revolves around sweet, spice, and acid,” said Alonzo. “One of my favorite candies in particular are these mango suckers powdered with chile and lime salt.” The result was a sour wheat ale with mango, tamarind, lime puree and NO lactose. link

Seven layer magic bar
Milk stout brewed with milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, toasted coconut, macadamia nuts, graham cracker, and milk sugar. Link

Blackberry Raspberry cobbler – Sour Wheat Ale brewed with vanilla, milk sugar, graham cracker and nearly 4000lbs of Blackberry and Raspberry puree.
Like the perfect bite of your grandma’ cobbler after a great home cooked meal, this Blackberry Raspberry entry in our Cobbler series is sweet, tart, and all too nostalgic! As per usual, this one DOES CONTAIN LACTOSE!

Apex of the vortex
Passion fruit & Mango Fruit smoothie sour. This came out great! Loaded with passion fruit and mango, a healthy dose of wheat, and a heavy handed addition of milk sugar, Apex of the Vortex is an unapologetic smoothie-style sour ale that drinks like a tropical cocktail with a rich body and mildly acidic finish.

Eternal Optimist
Pineapple, Orange & coconut Fruit smoothie sour. Pineapple bomb in yo mouth! Brewed with mountains of wheat, Eternal Optimist pairs three of our favorite tropical fruits (pineapple, orange and coconut) together along with milk sugar to create a luscious fruit forward and tart smoothie-style beer. Notes of Hawaiian cocktails, beach sunsets, and sitting under a palm tree. Drink umbrella not included, but encouraged.

Sippin’ & Forgettin’ – Coconut & Lemon Berliner wiesse 
Berliner Weisse brewed with malted wheat, barley malt and milk sugar then conditioned on Meyer Lemon, Madagascar Vanilla Beans and toasted coconut.

Dreamyard – Flagship New England hazy ipa
A New England IPA that’s made ENTIRELY from oats and wheat. Super Juicy IPA that is splendidly hazy with aromas of stonefruit, pineapple, and citrus. An insane amount of Citra and Denali hops per barrel make this beer an incredibly juicy and citrusy treat with an approachable level of bitterness.

Hypersolid – “6% hazy ipa” – Kegs only
This banger of an IPA is coming in hot with a super quaffable 6% ABV for those early day drinking sessions.  Time to get after it… Pitter patter
