Iowa, Here We Come!

As you may have heard if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, our beer will be released in Iowa beginning on Monday, March 19. We’re excited about entering the Hawkeye State! We have a network of nine distributors that we’ll be using to cover the entire state, from Des Moines to Sioux City to Decorah to Keokuk.

Ready or Not…


Also, we’ve received many questions so far about KBS from Iowans: KBS will not be available in Iowa this year, because we had already shipped all of the KBS that had been packaged before we began shipments to Iowa. The one exception to this is the release party that we are having at Reds Alehouse in North Liberty on March 20, beginning at 4pm, where a 1/6 bbl (a small keg, also known as a torpedo keg or a log) of KBS will be tapped.

  1. Can’t wait to have you guys here in Iowa. I used to live in Grand Rapids and spent many evenings in the old taproom on Monroe across from Baker Furniture. In fact, I remember trying one of the first batches of Breakfast Stout there. So, welcome to the heartland. I look forward to seeing you at Red’s in a couple of weeks.

    One quick question, will All Day IPA be available in Iowa as a regular beer?

    • All Day IPA won’t be in Iowa this year, but we’re hoping to expand our markets for it next year, including Iowa.

  2. Finally! I have been making runs to the Iowa-Illinois border for far too long. We wish you a warm welcome to the Hawkeye State!
