Big Grove “Drive Thru Burgers” now Big Grove “Drive Thru Burritos”! + 3 more beer releases this weekend!

bg

With Big Grove opening back up both their Solon and Iowa City locations for social distancing dine-in option, the popular Big Grove drive thru on Saturdays is getting a little change up to make room for folks wanting to come to the restaurant! Instead of drive thru burgers, fries and beers from 11-2 it will now be drive thru breakfast burritos and beers from 9-11 a.m.! Preorder your burritos and beer by clicking here!

And just a quick thank you note to the staff at both Big Grove locations for the adaptability and also their generosity in still getting us beer and terrific food the last few months. Class act group of people! Onto the releases:

* Into the Woodsย kettle sour was originally brewed as part of a collab with our pals fromย Copper Kettle Brewingย in Denver, CO. Lactose, blackberries, and raspberries give this Berliner Weisse aย tart and fruity zing! If you haven’t tried it, it’s something special.
*A Better Tomorrowย hazy double IPA returns after its debut during Hazepocalypse 2019. Many said it was the best of the six in that Hazy Series #jussayin ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Brewed with South African hops, this exceptionally fruity beer has notes of orange and sweet peach and a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
*Strawberry Lemon Splash Gusherย tastes like… who knows?! These Gushers have been crazyโ€”and crazy delicious. They’re made in a tiny fermentor on Fridays with more fruit than should legally be allowed in beer. Strawberries and lemons work together, right?

Big Grove Drive Thru returns! Jabroni Pils, Katie’s Day Off, Blood Orange Arms Race, Into the Woods, Dirty Little Secret, + Snowbird for this weekend!

big grove

5 more brews coming from the busy brewers and staff and Big Grove this weekend for their wonderful Drive Thru! You can start your preorder right now by clicking here!ย  Let’s get to the brews:

**Jabroni Pils – available in 4 pack cans. This is collab brew with Lua Brewing and if you’re interested, Big Grove will be going live on Instagram tonight with Lua owner Scott Selix. You can join that by clicking here:

5.2% ABV – Our collab with Lua Brewing is an Iowan’s take on an Italian classic: This beer is clean and refreshing with a crispy finish thanks to the Saphir we tossed in the dry hop. Saluti!

**Katie’s Day Off –

In honor of my day off, I asked the team to make the ultimate throwback hipster IPA for my fellow skinny jean wearing, laptop- wielding, head banging, West Coast drinking punkers out there.

This old school double IPA has the most perfect piney, dank hop build thanks to Columbus Cryo, Centennial, Chinook, and Simcoe hops.

Hazies begone! This one is bitter like your attitude and delicious like your (actual) taste in fonts and palettes.

**Blood Orange Arms Race – single can sale

Arms Race blurs the line between a pale ale and an IPA. Rich malt character offsets a massive hop punch. Citra hops steal the show with their gigantic tropical bouquet. Strong. Strong like bull. This version hasย blood orange added!

**Into the Woodsย 

Something weird happened on the way to Colorado from Iowa. Some full-bodied midwestern lactose stumbled through a berry bramble and this perfect kettle sour was born. Raspberries and blackberries give a start, fruity zing and lactose adds ideal body to this delectable treat. From the fields of Iowa City to Denver’s Rocky Mountains, we know one thing: thirsty happens. When it does, support your local brewery, grab a can, and head into the woods.

**Snowbirdย 

A little reminder of summer never hurts. This experimental sour gives you just that with a peach, apricot, and coconut concoction.

**Dirty Little Secret

Dark strong ale aged with raspberries. Notes of roasted coffee and chocolate.

Big Grove Saturday “Drive Thru” continues this weekend (4/18)! Colorado Smuggler and Summer Jam make their returns! + Blackberry Lime Gusher debuts!

summer jam

Another weekend of social distancing approaches and thankfully another weekend of Big Grove’s drive thru comes with it! This week’s online sale for the drive thru is up and active and two new beers to the menu will be Summer Jam and Colorado Smuggler! Adding to those is Blackberry Lime Gusher! Here’s more on these two delicious brews:

Summer Jam – 4.2%
Berliner Weisse inspired beer, Sidehill Sour, all jammed up with raspberries, blackberries, and cherries just in time for summer.

Colorado Smuggler – 7.2% – hazy IPA
Passionfruit, berry, lemon, citrus, and drifting cannabis notes are the result of some Strata hops we smuggled into the state of Iowa and brewed with our pals from Odell Brewing.

New to the list is Blackberry Lime Gusher, an experimental sour!
