    Re: Fill your growler at the grocery store

    I think there are plans to add growler stations to the actual Class C liquor stores at some point.

    Confusingly enough, the market Grill/Cafe places will also fill growlers (32 or 64 oz I...

    Re: Session Beer

    This is mostly right. Hoppy stuff does tend to cost a little more to make, particularly the varieties with harder to find (read: more expensive) hops. It mostly boils down to scale, though. The...

    Re: The 10 best breweries in Iowa

    We're going from being 10 times smaller than Exile to just 4 times smaller than Exile in the next couple weeks!

    Also expect Exile to get a boost in perception soon....

    Re: The 10 best breweries in Iowa

    Beatnik is a fairly classic Berliner Weisse (maybe a bit high in ABV for the style, but not far off). It's one of the beers that makes perfect sense if you're going to do a great variety of beers in...

    Re: Anyone here brew their own beer?

    Get a wye and another ball valve with a barbed end on it from micromatic (I bet beer crazy has them too). Unthread the ball valve on the existing regulator and replace it with the wye, threading the...
  6. Re: Toppling Goliath announces Florida brewer partnership

    I'd say that it depends. If you're doing anything designed to age, you're generally going to end up in bottles, either corked/caged or waxed or whatnot.



    I'd argue that a fresh IPA will be...

    Re: Favorite craft bar

    We are very picky about where our beer goes, and I'd have zero issues with putting it on at any of the FCP-run places, including EBS. They do a great job of making sure stuff doesn't stick around...
  8. Re: New brewery coming to Valley Junction - West Des Moines

    That's not true in Iowa. Native breweries in Iowa are actually licensed the same as distributors. They are allowed to have a single retail license which can sell any and all beer (including beer from...

    Re: Anyone here brew their own beer?

    I brew my own :)
    Though I haven't home-brewed in a long time now. Just don't have the time for it anymore.

    It's a great hobby, and there are lots of folks that do it these days. There are a...

    Re: The cost of Craft-article

    I don't think that the government has an official definition of "craft brewer". As far as they are concerned, a 1bbl nano and a 1000bbl macro are the same in terms of taxes and regulation (in...

    Re: Beer ratings sites

    I like to watch them all. The most informed ratings are generally Ratebeer. The most fanatical are on BeerAdvocate. The most common is untappd.

    That's mostly just my observation, though.

    Re: Beer Trading

    In and around the Decorah area, I bet they sell more Dorothy's than almost anything else. It probably sells at least 2:1 over everything else in their taproom. It's sort of their "fat tire" in the...

    Re: cityview top 100 bars in Des Moines

    I take all of these lists with a grain (or block) of salt.

    Also note that this is "100 Bars that they like", not "top 100". Take that for what it's worth :smile:

    Re: Pumpkin beer power rankings

    I think it's right around 6% this year. it moves around a little depending on how much of the pumpkin ferments (if any). It's kinda a pain to brew with actual pumpkin, which is why a lot of breweries...

    Re: Best "Cheap" Beer

    "Better" is relative. Glass still is better in a lot of ways than cans, depending on the cans, canning line, seamer and QA/QC program.

    And for many craft beers, bottles make a lot more sense. For...

    Re: Pumpkin beer power rankings

    We are. It'll be on tap in 2 hours and 22 minutes.
    It's a little more subtle than a lot of spice bombs, but definitely pumpkin-y!

    Weather couldn't be much better for a fall seasonal release!

    Re: Top 10 beers you want to try

    If you want to try Pliny, or really anything, badly enough, get your hands on a few bottles of Pseudo Sue from TG (that'll get easier soon), and then go to BeerAdvocate's trade forums.

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    It's all very complicated and depends on:
    Where the brewery is located
    What the state laws are
    What the brewery wants to/can do (i.e. do they want to be in that state, and if so, can they produce...
