IF the brewer still works there, you have to question his/her brewing ethics.

Most of us are control freaks of some form or another, so I can't imagine a brewer allowing this kind of beer mixology. That has to be the strangest way of making more money on cheap beer. Might as well swap the tap handles and see if anyone notices.

Where did they get the bock? Commercial keg claiming to be brew pub's own?

wow.

This place in Shenandoah Iowa. SW Iowa... near Missouri

Its called "The Depot"

The place is a towny bar with a Brewery that seems like its an overgrown hobby for the owner. My guess is the owner is the brewer, but I'm not sure about that. It looks like they have lost interest in beer making. They don't offer seasonals. Thinking back I don't seem to recall them having anything other than these 3 styles. ( Maybe only 1 )

It looks like they have a huge fermentor in the back. You can see it from the windows in the parking lot. Its about 6~8' tall and at least 3~4' in diameter.

Offer them $100 and free hauling for the fermenter. Since they aren't using it anyway

In a frosted mug, of course.

That's where bottled beer comes in very handy.

I went there again tonight. Got me a 3-taco diner and drank only bocks.

The bartender is not a bad guy, sat next to his SWMBO and they seem like OK people. They are just not beer officianados

I think the owner is very lax on the brewing.... doesn't think regular brewing is all that important.

Me thinks he doesn't know how market micro-brews. He could make three types; Balanced, Malty & Hoppy. This could satisfy the pseudo-beer experts. (Non-EAC Certified)

Making something like Biermunchers 3 crop would be easy and a good money maker.

One could make some good money if they did something like this when the competition is so piss poor!!!
