Mortalis Brewing coming to Iowa via Pequod! Plus, Untitled Art, Blackstack, Humble Forager, Phase Three, Aslin, and Weldwerks!

Mortalis Brewing Company was founded in 2017, but its origin dates to many years before then. Formed in Upstate NY, Mortalis was selected as a winner of the Brew in Livingston County business plan competition in 2017. Officially opening its doors in August of 2018, Mortalis has gone on to successfully fund a Kickstarter, expand 500% beyond its original capacity, become the first to brew an everything bagel DIPA & strawberry cheesecake milkshake, and been privileged enough to work with some of the greatest craft breweries in the world. As Mortalis continues to grow and expand, the focus remains on trying to produce the best beer possible and is grounded in the belief that beer is about human connection. A connection that we are all mortals in this realm with stories to tell, dreams to live, and beers to share. We are all Mortalis.

NEW – Corporate Sellout Move IPA 
This is an IPA! It’s a collab with Cloudburst, in Seattle. They make great hoppy beer. They are industry vets, which plays into the name (we’ll get to that). They are the sort of small brewery that spends a ton of time doing wet hop beers, getting to know growers, learning about the business of hops, and generally just being in the loop about all things hops. It’s enlightening to talk to them, drink some of their beers, and understand that the idea that maybe IPA could look like a hazy beer but not just be a glass full of smoosh with no structure at all whatsoever.
