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.

Hoosier Brewing and Collective Project coming to Iowa via Pequod, plus Untitled Art, Weldwerks, Blackstack, MORE, and Modist!

Let’s welcome Hoosier Brewing into the Hawkeye State as they will be bringing their tasty brews to us via Pequod! A full list of what to see below plus more! Check it out!

HOOSIER BREWING:

Pie Face: Pumpkin Pie
One of our taproom favorites of the past. This brew is straight pumpkin pie in a glass! We started with a heap of real pumpkin puree, and added our pie treatment along with a few other secret ingredients. It is smooth w/a medium mouthfeel, and a little tart on the finish! Grab a can of whip cream and serve it on top of this baby when you partake at home.
Java Berry: Pinball
Black Currant, Dark Chocolate, Espresso. This series is super unique in that we start with our solid sourbase, add tons of real fruit puree, and top off with name brand coffee! It is rich, super unique, and sure to please the fruit-boys who are also coffee drinkers.

Chubby Bunny: Storm Cloud
Blueberry, Blackberry, Marshmallow: The sky is getting dark with this medley of flavors. We pulled out the dark berries and paired it with loads of marshmallows for a tart, rich, and creamy brew.

Spin to Win: Ace
Strawberry, Blueberry, Gooseberry: This series is all about the fruit.. no additional adjuncts needed- let the fruit shine! A beautiful arrangement of fruit with this one– featuring crazy amounts of real strawberry, blueberry & gooseberry puree….. A clean, tart, and super refreshing brew.

Let’s ALSO welcome Collective Project is a sister brand of Collective Arts focusing on CBD-infused sparkling juices and teas that feature international commissioned art projects on each can. List below:

Sparkling Juice – Cucumber, Lemon, Lime
This mix of real cucumber and lemon and lime cold pressed juices will keep you cool, calm and collected.

Sparkling Tea – Lemon, Pear, Schisandra Green Tea
Naturally energizing green tea with fresh lemon cold press juice and schisandra, a complex dried fruit with peppery notes.

Sparkling Juice – Mango, Pineapple, Coconut
Let us help your mind wander to the beach (and maybe some other places) with our twist on a classic. Silky mango and delicately citrusy lemongrass blend with the classic piña colada ingredients of fresh pineapple and coconut.

Sparkling Tea – Raspberry & Hibiscuc Rooibos Tea
Steeped with a blend of fruity Hibiscus tea with smooth, naturally sweet Rooibos, then infused with fresh raspberries for a tart, not too sweet finish.

Midnight Toffee Stout
Coming in at 12.3%, this imperial stout is filled with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, Belgian candi syrup & milk sugar. The Belgian candi syrup is used to boost the alcohol content without adding extra body to the beer, so this stout won’t feel as thick and heavy… just insanely delicious! This collaboration is only done once a year and flies off the shelves every time, so trust me, you don’t want to miss out!

Key Lime Pie Berliner
Freshly squeezed key limes, vanilla beans, and just a hint of graham cracker pair perfectly with the tart wheat base beer in our Key Lime Pie Berliner. We colored a bit outside the lines to recreate our favorite summer dessert, adding over 250 lbs of key limes for the signature citrus character, lactose and vanilla beans for the pie filling, and just a hint of graham cracker for the crust. Tart, creamy, complex, and dangerously drinkable.

Independent Reading Time IPA
Fans of the best-selling Citra series will love this latest edition as our main character embarks on another terpene-laden adventure with his old pals Mosaic and Motueka. When these three get together you know they’re going to get into some hijinx! The piney and fruity essences are still a huge plot point but with a lower ABV compared to a DIPA, to ensure you make it from cover to cover.

Cactus Valley IPA
Indie Pale Ale brewed with Prickly Pear Juice, Real Agave & Citra, Belma + Barbe Rouge hops. This poky boi is a remixed version of our Cactus Canyon IPA, only this time, we tossed in a lil’ somethin’ extra to make it even more cactus-y – prickly pear juice! That enticing yet still spiky red fruit on the top of a cactus adds a sugary fruitiness that perfectly compliments the Belma and Barbe Rouge hop profile. It’s another single IPA so it comes off very well balanced between hop and fruit notes. The agave adds a smooth sweetness and overall is much more enjoyable to consume than just straight up taking a bite out of a giant Saguaro. Which is, like, not recommended.

Here Comes The Sunflower
India Pale Ale brewed with malted Colorado sunflower seeds & Citra + Nectaron hops. Little darling, it’s been a long and hot summer. And as the seasons change and temps drop we wanted to make a beer using an ingredient right from our very state, the big tall yellow guy, that late-summer hit, the Colorado sunflower. We put a heapin’ helpin’ of sunflower seeds into this recipe to pay homage to the big bright blooming boy that helps us squeeze every last drop of sunlight out of summer. If you’ve never had sunflower seeds in a beer you’re gonna wanna give this a go or two. It’s as if our brewers found a way to liquify the beauty of a clear Colorado afternoon and package it. We’re also thrilled to add a new hop varietal to our arsenal! Nectaron hops come from New Zealand and bring forth a burst of passionfruit, pineapple citrus notes to further brightent his beer.

Juicy Bits IPA
Our flagship IPA features a huge citrus and tropical fruit hop character from the Mosaic, Citra & El Dorado hops and softer, smoother mouthfeel from the adjusted water chemistry, higher protein malts, and lower attenuation. The end result is a beer reminiscent of citrus juice with extra pulp, thus the name Juicy Bits.

Speltie Oatie Dope Delicious TIPA
A liquid love song for our favorite alien space pimps from the dirty south. Cadillacs full of our hand selected citra, amarillo cryo, simcoe cryo and el dorado on a long body malt base. If we were to describe it in 4 words, it would be: speltie, oatie, dope, delicious. Just wait for the trumpet solo. 

Meat Sweats Lager
This beer is a bastardization of some of our favorite lager/lagerish traditions from near and far with our good buds at the private sector. 

Autumn Fields Cream Ale
The leaves are changing, which means it’s time to bring back one of our favorite seasonal releases. 𝗔𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗺𝗻 𝗙𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱𝘀 is a cream ale with cranberry and orange to provide you with some fresh Fall flavor that pairs nicely with the imminent brisk weather. Bright and crushable with a rush of tart fruity flavor, this light-bodied ale is perfect for a trip to the apple orchard, pumpkin patch, or while nestled in a blanket around an open fire. (4.5% ABV)

Dbl Frooted Mango 
This week we’re bringing back a doubled version one of our most popular variants from our FROOTED series…𝗗𝗢𝗨𝗕𝗟𝗘 𝗙𝗥𝗢𝗢𝗧𝗘𝗗 𝗠𝗔𝗡𝗚𝗢! This Smoothie Ale is absolutely loaded with fresh Indian-grown Mangos. Simply brilliant, this straightforward mango ale permeates with everything you love about the ripe tropical drupe that’s refreshing as it is tasty. Ultra-juicy with a nice tangy mouthfeel and exquisite fruity aroma. (8% ABV)

Mangoshino
What two words would you combine if you could combine two words?
Introducing Mangoshino, our Smoothie Sour w/ malted wheat, 2-row barley & over 3400 lbs of Mango & Sweet Cherries.

Abracadaver
A quick flick of the wrist. Don’t blink, you might miss it. “Abracadaver”. Was it sleight of hand? Is that an actual wizard? What is this sorcery? Don’t question it. Accept it. Abracadaver. Introducing Abracadaver, our New England Double IPA w/ barley, oats, flaked oats, hopped & double dry hopped w/ Sultana, Citra, El Dorado Cryo & Strata.

Dreamyard Hazy IPA
An New England IPA that’s made ENTIRELY from oats and wheat. 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.

Pequod bringing new beers from: Blackstack, Equilibrium, MORE, Humble Forager, Weldwerks, Modist, and Cascade!

DDH Link In Bio DIPA – 9% ABV
Our buds Yakima Chief Hops plugged us with the freshness in the form of their recently rechristened Cryo Pop Blend. As you may know, we like our dry hop additions to make sexy times with our yeast, and this blend was formulated specifically with that in mind. Double the dose of newly Cryo Pop from the OG along with healthy portions of our Hand-Selected Citra & Mosaic for maximum juice extraction. Hit the link in bio for that good good.

Dad’s Stoked TIPA – 10.5% ABV
Properly elevated portions of our hand-selected Mosaic, Citra and Sabro Cryo with Australian Galaxy to hit those Clarence Clemons low notes. He’s so stoked, you’d think the Wolves won the lottery.

Local 755 – 6.8% ABV
Our Foggy Favorite. Azacca, Amarillo & a Gwop of Citra. Soft, Juicy & Hazy like 70’s Home Movies.

Infinite Mmm…Osa – 8.0% ABV
We supersized our beloved pale ale to get a DIPA with incredible body, hit it with a supersized dose of the Mmm… Osa hop bill, and conditioned on Florida Navel Oranges. You get a bright yellow hazy citrusy DIPA that smells of futuristic oranges and tastes of dank orange fruit cup, peaches, and tang. The insane levels of fresh zest compliment the flavors and help mimic the fresh squeezed OJ Grandma used to make in the morning, just with next-level oranges… from the future. It has a chewy mouthfeel and absolutely explodes with our #EQjuice making sure your palate never runs out of your favorite any-time drink.

Solar Fluctuation – 8.5% ABV
We changed things up on this latest batch to see how can such a small variation drive major change.
Solar Fluctuation starts off a big dose of flaked oats and wheat for a creamy body. Citra and Idaho 7 went into the whirlpool before a dry hop of Citra, Sultana, and Rakau. Hazy yellow with aromas of passionfruit, pineapple and melon lead into flavors of bright citrus, passionfruit, cantoluope, and anjou pear. These fruit flavors lead up to our #EQjuice medley and morph into a creamy mouthfeel and soft bitterness on finish.

Fluctuating Fruits Papaya/Pineapple – 8.1% ABV
Fluctuating Fruits is back today with our newest combination of Papaya and Pineapple. We started off with our Fluctuation base, dry hopped it with Citra and Galaxy before adding more than a metric ton of Papaya and Pineapple. Pouring a light-peachy-yellow color, aromas of citrus and tropical fruit lead into flavors of an island fruit cup, ripe cantaloupe, mango, and tiki drinks all wrapped in a creamy sorbet finish. 

Origami Paper Airplanes – 8.0% ABV
Origami Paper Planes our new collaboration with Barreled Souls. It speaks to a collaborative love of aeronautics, air bending, differential pressures, and folding a creation together and watching ideas take flight. This beer uses large amounts of oats with massive doses of Enigma, Mosaic, and Columbus. Origami Paper Planes pours a saturated yellow with aromas of cannabis, earth, lime, papaya, and fresh cut grass and saturated flavors of candied orange, cantaloupe, mango juice, sticky icky, white grape, berry, and earthy pine wrapped up in a resinous #EQjuice finish. A few sips will have you taking flight! 

Side Dish DDH IPA – 7.0% ABV
Just in time to round out this summer season, Side Dish is making its hazy return! This soft and succulent DDH IPA is brewed with Citra and Idaho-7 for an insanely juicy profile fit for your next outdoor excursion. Side Dish packs huge flavors of sweet peach marmalade, ripe bergamot, candied cherries, and freshly-steeped oolong tea. Grab a pack to take to the local sunflower fields as we transition toward our autumnal winds. 

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.

Coastal Sunrise – Version 5
This version is inspired by mixed berry pancakes. Blueberries, blackberries and raspberries mix with barrel aged Wisconsin maple syrup, Madagascar vanilla beans and cinnamon. Reminiscent of   version 1 coastal sunrise, but with a bit more berry pop!

Rugged Outlook DDH TIPA – Version 2
This juicy triple IPA is jammed packed with some of our favorite hops throughout the entire brewing and cellaring progress. Hop additions to the boil, whirlpool, hop back, fermentation and conditioning tank fold in layers of natural flavors.

Nelson DDH Juicy Bits – 6.7% ABV
One of the sexiest and most extravagant hops on the market, brewing a Nelson Sauvin-focused DDH Juicy Bits was an absolute no-brainer for us. While this hop varietal can sometimes be to be too wild and dominating, we knew its complex characteristics would pair perfectly with our community of dedicated hazy hopheads.

Juicy Bits IPA – 6.7% ABV
This is a mouthwatering IPA filled with a fresh combination of sweet orange, pineapple, pear, underripe mango, watermelon and berry. Still, there is a touch of bitterness that threads itself through the whole drinking experience, helping to keep the beer experience at the forefront and not just a full-on glass of juice.

Fit Bits Hazy Session IPA – 4.2% ABV
Low calorie, low carb, Hazy Session IPA brewed with Citra, El Dorado, and Sabro hops. One of the most beautifully and uniformly hazy IPAs we have made, features notes of papaya, over-ripe mango, and peach skins from the huge whirlpool and dry hop additions, plus a surprisingly smooth and creamy mouthfeel for a beer that finishes so dry and crisp.

Pineapple Upside Down – 5.3% ABV
Berlin-style sour ale brewed with pineapple puree, almonds, milk sugar, vanilla & vanilla cake mix. The pineapple upside down cake was at the height of its fame in the 1950’s and 60’s and is again gaining popularity. So naturally we took everything that makes this treat so sublime and turned it into a beer.

Dreamyard Hazy IPA – 7.1% ABVAn New England IPA that’s made ENTIRELY from oats and wheat. 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.

dHop 35 pours a very vibrant yellow, releasing bright tropical notes of rainbow melon, bright citrus, mango, pineapple, and peach.

Fluctuation DDH DIPA – 8.1%
Departures from Equilibrium are known as fluctuations. It pours a very hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and lychee with an undercurrent of sorbet and cream. Fluctuation tastes highly resinous and tropical with an assertive yet soft bitterness. We consider this fluctuation to be perfectly unbalanced. 

Galaxy Flare DDH DIPA – 8.5% ABV
Starting off with a base of white wheat and flaked oats, we used our 100% hand selected Victorian Galaxy in both the whirlpool and dry hop for the hop bill. Pouring a deep hazy yellow, saturated aromas and flavors of Florida navel orange, passionfruit, lychee, and grapefruit build into a dank #EQjuice forward finish with a balanced creaminess and a touch of hop bitterness. It seems like it took us lightyears to make our first All Galaxy DIPA, but we think it was worth the wait!

Photon is our light and crushable American Pale Ale loaded with pacific northwest hops. It pours a very hazy orange, releasing well-blended notes of apricot, tangerine, peach, mango, and pineapple. It tastes of soft juicy tropical fruits, hop resins, and a hint of biscuit. A smooth rounded bitterness with a touch of dryness ensures you’re ready for the next sip. This drinking experience is further enhanced with a soft and billowy mouth-feel that has made this the go to ale for the Equilibrium crew, especially when a productive day needs to follow a fun night.

Evergy Wave DDH DIPA – 8% ABV
We are thrilled with Dream Wave Fluctuation. We revisited the Wave treatment with one of our favorite beers by paying tribute to the other side of the MC² relationship with energy. Energy Wave takes the MC² grain bill, increases the hops, and adds a touch of lactose. Energy Wave pours a glowing hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, lactose, and apricot. Energy Wave tastes like a succulent wave of creamy mango juice with a touch of sweet that is dangerously drinkable and balanced.

Oktoberfest

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.

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

Apex of the vortex
Passion fruit & Mango Fruit smoothie sour.

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.
