Tap = Taken over

Fair State, Blackstack, Humble Forager, Company Values, MORE, and Untitled Art brews coming from Pequod


Pixie Mix Pink Lemonade Seltzer 

Taste the last drops of summer with our new 🍋Pixie Mix Pink Lemonade🍋!
We crafted another nostalgic Pixie Mix based on our favorite warm weather drink – pink lemonade! Lemon & raspberry flavors are blended into our special Pixie Mix based for a refreshing 5.5% ABV treat. 

Mango Strawberry Lemonade Imperial Seltzer
9% Imperial seltzer with mango and strawberry flavors.

BA White Chocolate Macadamia Stout – Collab with Eighth State – quantities are very limited
Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Cocoa Nibs, Nuts, Vanilla and Milk Sugar.

Morever DDH IPA
This Double Dry Hopped IPA is a delicious juice bomb thanks to a hefty hopping of Citra, Motueka, & Simcoe hops. An endless succession of juicy pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine notes are leveled out with a hint of bitterness that resolves onto a smooth and refreshing finish.

Strawberry Orange Dbl Marbles Milkshake IPA
Ever since we decided to explore the realm of making world-class Milkshake-Style IPAs there were two in particular that have taken on global recognition. So we decided, what would happen if the two joined forces to create something completely epic? Enter 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘄𝗯𝗲𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗢𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺 𝗗𝗼𝘂𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗯𝗹𝗲𝘀. We combined our two most popular milkshake-IPAs and put them inside of the same glorious can for a legendary battle between the two titans. An all-out assault of tangy vs. juicy, tart vs. sweet, and good vs…well…also good. Ripe, succulent, and overflowing with both oranges and strawberries, this is one Marbles built for the ages. (8% ABV)

Exceeding Expectations Hazy IPA
First ever IPA from Company Values! Exceeding Expectations is a hazy IPA with Strata & Mosaic hops.

Entrepreneurial Spirit Smoothie Seltzer
Mango lemonade smoothie seltzer sour (gluten free).

Enchanted Island Sour – Version 3
Inspired by a Hawaiian Mai Tai cocktail, this sour ale is bursting with tropical fruit tones and held together with a touch of almond and sweetened with blackstrap molasses.

Humble Bumble Buzzed Seltzer – Version 4
This is a super tropical version of the buzzed seltzer. The coconut is light but the other flavors are huge, and this should be a touch creamier than the previous versions due to the banana and mangosteen.  

Miracle of Birth Center DIPA
State Fair DIPA w/ Milk Sugar (8.5%)
The Miracle of Birth Center is typically our first stop at the fair. Partially because it’s the closest entrance the State Fair has to our brewery & partially because the combination of all that fried food + witnessing the awe & splendor of new farm animals entering the world in all of their uncensored glory can, at times, be a bit… unsettling. Our hand-selected Strata & Talus + a dash of Milk Sugar, you know… for the cows.

Standing Ovation TIPA
This is us seeing how much juice we can pull out of one of our favorite hop combos. Obnoxiously loud quantities of our hand selected strata, cashmere & cashmere cryo. Just be careful standing up… this one’s a doozie coming in at a whopping 10.5%. 

Double Universe DIPA
A double-ized version of our flagship hazy IPA, Mirror Universe. Double Universe is absolutely slammed with Mosaic, Mosaic Cryo, Citra, Citra Cryo, and El Dorado hops, and brewed with tons of wheat and oats. We ferment it cool with our house IPA yeast, and the result is a massive beer that positively drips tropical character.

Mirror Universe IPA
Double dry-hopped hazy IPA brewed with wheat, oats, and lots of Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops

Crankin’ Foamers
Just your standard American Slammin’ beer. A premium corn lager brewed the old fashioned way, with a cereal mash and an extended lagering period. Collaboration with Modern Times Beer.

Pequod releases for the week of 7/19! Introducing Company Values, plus Fair State, Humble Forager, Untitled Art, Blackstack!

Tibanna Hazy IPA – Hubbards Cave Collab
Tibanna is a DDH Hazy IPA collaboration with our friends Hubbard’s Cave Brewery. We brewed it with a hefty addition of spelt, oats, and wheat, and hopped with our hand-selected Citra, Citra Cryo, and Galaxy hops.

Side Pull Czech Style pils – Bierstadt collab
Bierstadt Lagerhaus collaboration, Side Pull, and it sure is crispy. If you’ve been to Bierstadt in Denver, you’ve probably enjoyed one or five of their signature Slow Pour Pils, complete with above-the-rim foam. A “Side Pull” is a Czech-style beer faucet that produces velvety, tight bubble foam
It’s as fluffy as a cloud, soft, juicy, and tropical with pineapple, passionfruit, citrus notes

Elevated Perspective V6 – Illinois style Dbl IPA 
(Illinois style Double IPA) Citra, Mosaic, Strata (8% ABV) CONTAINS LACTOSE. 

“Leadership”
Fruited smoothie sour with pineapplepassion fruit and tangerine. This baby was just canned and still has no ratings- you could be the first! 

Dragonfruit Nectar Sour
Berliner weiss style ale with Pineapple puree, Dragonfruit, Agave nectar and Vic Secret Hops. 6.4% ABV 

Painkiller Imperial Seltzer
Imperial Seltzer with Pineapple Puree, Cream of Coconut, Orange Juice Concentrate, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Natural Flavors

**Available NOW** Strawberry Shortcake Imperial Seltzer – Pulpit Rock Collaboration 
Blurring the lines of beer and seltzer, this baby brings the fire and brings back memories of childhood and summer parties. 

HOP CIRCLES: EXHIBIT B – Unidentified DIPA (8.4%)
Our super special buds Yakima Chief Hops have been experimenting with blending hop varietals to achieve flavors & aromas redolent of specific fruits when added during primary fermentation & were kind enough to let us play with some super, extra, top secret, new trial blends. For this version, we let the Berry Blend get friendly with our favorite IPA yeast during primary fermentation & kept the malt bill relatively simple. No fruit was harmed in the making of this beverage.

Wire Transfer – Collab with Randy’s
Another hot DDH Dbl IPA  8.4% ABV. Not yet released – Roll. Pass. Enjoy.

SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY – Peach Cobbler Inspired Gose (7.5%)
An exercise in indulgence with our Hot Chicken slinging homies @revivalmn to celebrate the opening of their new location in St. Louis Park An obscene amount of Peaches, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Tahitian Vanilla Beans, House Roasted Almonds, Sea Salt & Granola with a Gose Base fermented in our American Oak Foeders with our House Culture.

HOP CIRCLES: EXHIBIT M – Experimental DIPA (8.4%)
The second installment in our Unidentified DIPA series of collabs with our buds Yakima Chief Hops, who’ve been experimenting with blending hops to achieve flavors & aromas redolent of specific fruits & were kind enough to let us play with some super, extra, top secret new experimental blends. For this version, we let the Mango Trial Blend get friendly with our favorite IPA yeast during primary fermentation, kept the malt bill relatively simple & sprinkled in some more of our hand selected Mosaic to highlight the differences between the blends. No fruit was harmed in the making of this beverage.

4 New Breweries to hit Iowa Shelves this week!

Four new breweries will be bringing their beers to Iowa shelves this coming week and more to follow! This week, we should start seeing the following:

**WELDWORKS**- Weldworks Brewing is located in Greeley, CO and will soon be opening a taproom in Colorado Springs as well. They are known for their Juicy Bits Hazy IPA amongst many other offerings. Very excited to have them come to our state and to learn more about them, check out their website by clicking HERE!

**UNTITLED ART** – Untitled Art is located in Waunakee, WI, a short drive from Madison. They are owned by the guys who own Funk Factory and Octopi Brewing and do many collabs. Check out their diverse portfolio by clicking HERE!

**FAIR STATE BREWING** – Fair State Brewing is located in Minneapolis, MN and like the above mentioned, has quite a large profile of beers. I know Mirror Universe has been seen in the DSM area before but hasn’t made its way further east. A wonderful taproom and beer garden and some really excellent beer, happy to have Fair State coming to our shelves, but it’s definitely worth a drive up north as well! Read more on their portfolio by clicking HERE!

**MODIST BREWING** – a brewery I was not very familiar with until a trip a few months back up to Madison where I landed some cans. Also located in Minneapolis, Modist adds to the wonderful array of breweries up north, making it a beer destination for sure. Here’s more on this brewery, click HERE!
