Mas Chela
𝗠á𝘀 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗮 uses our ultra-purified, soft water from our production facility in Huntley and then is cool stored in our horizontal german lagering tank for 5-6 weeks.

Hopperatus – DDH IPAA Double Dry Hopped Hazy IPA hit with Mosaic, Idaho 7, Simcoe and Strata hops. This IPA is bursting with a complex assemblage of pungent tropical fruit, rosy florals, and dank earthy hemp that leaves lots of room for exploration. (7.2% ABV)

Toppling Goliath tap takeover @ Reds Alehouse this Thursday! (6/10)

One helluva lineup coming to you this Thursday at Reds Alehouse in North Liberty as Toppling Goliath is bringing some heavy hitters the lines! Get there early, these are sure to go quick!

Join us this #ThirstyThursday for a specialty tapping event featuring these TG Brews on draft:

**Term Oil Fluffernutter – Term-Oil Fluffernutter begins with a special blend of Imperial Stout that aged in bourbon barrels for well over a year. To that already decadent base, we added dry roasted peanuts, peanut butter, marshmallow, and vanilla beans to create the liquid version of the classic Fluffernutter sandwich.
**Term Oil Coconut Monster Cookie – Inspired by one of our favorite treats, this bourbon-barrel aged stout will warm you with notes of fresh monster cookies baked with heaps of honey-glazed toasted coconut, a touch of peanut butter, and candy coated chocolates.
**Ferrari Backpack DIPA – We vibed out with our compadres at Lua Brewing Company to manifest liquid opulence. Brewed with a pretentiously golden aesthetic, loaded with luxuriously oil-laden hops, and soft as thousand thread count sheets. Drink fresh. Pinkies out.
**Pineapple Papaya Fandango Sour – Conjure up warm-weather vibes with this kettle sour. Tropical papaya and fresh-squeezed pineapple juice will transport your tastebuds to a tropical wonderland. Sweet, tart, and then sweet again.
**Hot Dog Time Machine DIPA – Our amigos at Hop Butcher for the World shared the same interest as us in exploring the alternate reality of the “fluffy” IPA. We threw multiple types of wheat into our fluff capacitor, heavily hopped it everywhere except the 88 minute boil, and fermented with yeast primed for transtemporal travel. Last year was certainly the wurst of times, but now it’s time to ketchup with us on our journey and relish in this hot dog fueled time travel adventure.
Pompeii IPA – This IPA is created with the same attention to detail as the beautiful mosaics that graced the city of Pompeii. It features mango and pineapple hop flavors with a medium-body feel to tantalize the senses.

Pequod releases for week of June 14th! Equilibrium, Humble Forager, Untitled Art, Blackstack, and Modist

More beers on their way from Pequod Distribution in the coming weeks! Here’s what should be making their way to our shelves!

Equilibrium

18 Decillion
We started off with a big base of oats and wheat before a LUPOMAX Idaho7 whirlpool and a tremendous Strata and Galaxy dry hop. 18 Decillion pours murky yellow with aromas of grove stand OJ being enjoyed in a forest made of Starburst (please add to your bucket list if you haven’t experienced this).

Astrophysics
Astrophysics pours a vibrant milky yellow with heavy aromas of starfruit, passionfruit, tangerine Pez, and dank hops. Flavors of sweet orange flesh, passionfruit juice, cantaloupe, and gummy peach rings transition to notes of berry and yuzu before a Big Bang of our #EQjuice rainbow melon finish. This beer is very soft, round, and full the pallet.

Fluctuation DDH DIPA
Our team’s favorite rotational makes its return today. Fluctuation has bright tropical notes of passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and lychee with an undercurrent of sorbet and cream await!

Fractal Citra/Sultana
Fractal Citra/Sultana pours glowing yellow with big aromatic notes and flavors of Valencia orange, pineapple slices, and lime spritz in a balanced finish with touch of bitterness. Tropical in flavor with a manageable ABV, this crusher is the perfect companion for the warmer days and outdoor activities.

Half Full batch 2 – Dbl IPA (8.0 % DIPA) a collaboration with District 96 Beer Factory.Named to serve an important message: Stay Positive. Optimism creates opportunity and pessimism kills it. Expecting good things helps formulate actions to produce good things. We are all in this together and we want you to remember to always see your glass as Half Full. If you have an empty glass, crack one of these cans, make it 100% full, then half full, enjoy and reflect on positive thoughts during this virtual tropical vacation.

Lupo Lab Linear Combination 2 (8.0 % DIPA)
Pouring a vibrant yellow color, Linear Combination 2 offers notes of dank glasses of champagne with tangerine and mango wedges in fresh hop fields. Intense and saturated flavors of juicy citrus, ripe mango, and notes of a melon await with heavy earth and a touch of pine. This beer is aggressive and soft at the same time with an escalating juiciness builds into a #EQjuice finish.

MC2 (squared) DIPAMC² is Photon’s big brother. We literally took Photon’s hopping rate and squared it. This DIPA is our tribute to the amazing relationship that energy and mass are balanced, proportional to the speed of a photon squared. It pours a hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, and apricot. MC² tastes like succulent mango juice loaded with chewy hop resins. It’s very drinkable for 8.0%; be careful, this one can sneak up on you. 

Mmmmm…..Osa
Mmm…Osa is our beloved Photon American Pale Ale conditioned on freshly zested oranges at a rate of 6 oranges per barrel. It’s everything photon is, with a dominant orange presence; this citric delight is our preferred way to start the afternoon.

Super Fractal Julia Set
The Julia Set is named after the French mathematician Gaston Julia. This complex set exists as a by-product of the Mandelbrot set and was devised while studying complex dynamics during the early 20th century. This set of complex numbers can cause drastic changes in the sequence of iterated functions.
We scaled up from Fractal using a super simple grain bill of 2-Row and our specific fractal fermentation profile before intensely hoping it with a Mosaic and El Dorado whirlpool and a dry hop of Citra, Mosaic, Strata and El Dorado.

HUMBLE FORAGER

Coastal Sunrise Ver.4 – Mango Lassi 
This Lassi inspired breakfast sour is packed with 3 ingredients from India, Alphonso Mango, planifolia vanilla beans and cardamom swirl with creamy indonesian coconut. It’s a mango bomb with a hint of vanilla and spice – just incredible!

UNTITLED ART

Dry Hopped Watermelon/Lime Gose – 1840 Brewing Collaboration
We teamed up with @1840brewing out of Milwaukee, WI (the BEST state!) to give you that refreshing picnic 🧺  summer drink. This Kettle Soured Berliner Weiss is coming in at 6.6% ABV brewed with real watermelon 🍉 , key limes, sea salt🧂 and lightly dry  Link

Watermelon Gose – Non Alch beer (0.5% abv or less)The world of Non Alcohol beer is exploding and “healthy drinking” in in-style. Untitled art has a line of Non-Alch beers including Florida weisse, Juicy IPA and Chocolate milk stout. Today we are introducing Watermelon Gose and it’s fantastic! It’s made with Watermelon juice, Lime juice and sea salt.

Pineapple/Mango
Prickly pear /Guava 

BLACKSTACK

Are you there God? it’s me Guava – Fruit sour
Triple Guava Smoothie-Style Sour (6.4%)
Our MIxed-Culture Foeder-Fermented Berliner-Base conditioned on questionable quantities of Pink Guava & Tahitian Vanilla Bean Caviar with a dash of Milk Sugar for good measure. This is our first foray putting our series of existential smoothie brews in these more slender beer tubes & we are very excited to share this stunning specimen of ostentatious over-fruiting with you.

Red Bottoms Dbl IPA – 8.8% ABV
Our friends @ Track Brewing co in Manchester, UK did a thing using Mosaic, Strata, Riwaka from New zealand to make a smooth beautiful IPA. 

Sponsored Content 5% ABV
We saved a bunch of money on this beer by keeping the malt bill simple, phoning it in on the label & not doubling or tripling anything in the dry hop with our hand selected Mosaic, Centennial & Columbus Cryo. Instead of passing the savings onto you, the consumer, we decided to spend the fat stacks we saved on super effective & totally organic paid advertising. Cheers!

STRAIGHT FYRE

 – DDH DIPA (8.8%)
In addition to their podcast, our buds at Private Sector Provisions have been cranking out some of the most crave worthy smash burgs on either side of the Mississippi. We figured we better blow it out for this one, so we used flaming portions of our hand selected Citra, Citra Cryo & Australian Galaxy & hired a bunch of instagram models and influencers to accurately illustrate how lit this experience is certain to be.

MODIST

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.

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

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!

**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!

The Map Room hosting #friesforfundraising on Tuesday, June 8th!

Something the Map Room in downtown Cedar Rapids does once a month is host a charity or fundraising event for those in need, and on Tuesday June 8th, they are hosting one that hits home for me. A co-worker and good friend of mine and his wife are currently expecting their first child in July, recently she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Upon hearing, I reached out to many establishments who have graciously extended a helping hand and the wonderful people at The Map Room is going to donate 10% of all sales they make on June 8th to my friend’s family! I cannot thank Christina Springman and her staff enough, they are what makes living in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City wonderful. Please choose to dine in or order out from the Map Room on June 8th and continue to support them after as well! Cheers!
