DOW (Drinks of the Week) Iowa Brewing Company

Established in 2016 after years of planning Iowa Brewing Company opened it’ doors.  Born out of tragedy these guys came together to make great beers in a great beer community.  After flooding had destroyed their previous business these guys went to work in creating something awesome.  They could have packed up and left, instead, they joined forces with some great folks and began making good beers.  Enough chit-chat lets look at the FACTS:  CHEERS BOYS!!!!!!!!


The Facts:  Zoinks

ABV:  4.5%

IBU’s: 58

Style: Session American India Pale Ale

WAS IT GOOD:  I thought so.  Look it may have been because I was in the Thanksgiving mood but I really did enjoy it.  It was a nice touch to Scooby Doo also.  Shaggy would be proud.  I enjoyed this guy while smoking and deep frying a turkey.  The brew just was perfect with the cold weather and the flavor was different.  I think it was some of those fruity flavors that reside inside that bottle.  I definitely needed a second one when my Chandelier fell out of my ceiling 5 minutes before serving dinner.  What the Hell.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION: I would, this one was fun and delicious.  I think we can make some room for it.


The Facts:  Tragedy of the Common

ABV:  4.9%

IBU’s: 38

Style: California Common – American Amber Ale

WAS IT GOOD:  Even better than the first one.  I don’t know if I have ever had a California Common American Amber Ale before so I guess this was a first.  This two-time award winner was delicious.  I enjoyed this beer while doing some writing and just enjoying a relaxing recovery day from Thanksgiving.  Smooth and enjoyable this one was.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION: A simple Hell Yeah will suffice here.
