Having exchanged emails with the good folks at New Belgium Brewing Company, I’ve got it on good authority that the Iowa beer scene is about to get better.
Mark your calendars: September 10 is the magic day. However, if you’re the lucky person with access to El Bait Shop, in Des Moines, on the 8th, you get the preview party. I’m told that bicycles and beer will be involved. And fun. And taste sensations.
My beloved abbey won’t make it until the Iowa beer laws are navigated a little further down the road. Instead, Fat Tire, 1554, and the new Mothership Wit will invade Iowa in 22 ounce bombers. Nothing to complain about there.
