    Madhouse Brewing

    I just picked up two 6ers of this stuff. One of the Pale Ale, and the other of their Wheat. The brewery is in Newton and they just started distributing. The Pale is pretty solid, actually. Kind of malty for a pale, but its pretty tasty. Good balance. Id recommend checking it out. The Wheat isnt as good as the Pale. Im all for supporting local breweries, and I think their Pale is something ill be drinking again. Heading down to Knoxville on Saturday to check out Peace Tree Brewery, which just got going down there.

    The Madhouse brewer is also the winemaker for Jasper Winery, I believe.

    I'm just excited that we can get more high proof beer here now!

    Indeed he is. I almost picked a 6 pack of Bell's 2 Hearted Ale (extra IPA) but it was $10.99 a 6 pack. It usually goes for $8.99. Price will go down as more high proof beer comes into the state. I'm on my 2nd Madhouse Pale, and really liking it.

    I've yet to have 2 Hearted. Don't know if it's available in Ames yet, but I will be seeking it out soon!

    It's damn good. Very similar to Sierra Nevada Torpedo, with a little more malt balance, IMO. Not quite as bitter on the aftertaste.
