I'm originally from the quad city area, obviously (to us) the rock island area. I think that's pretty rad to see someone else on this forum from my old stomping grounds.

To the man who is using Arsenal City, that is indeed a pretty bad ass name.

To be honest, if you were here 10 years ago you wouldn't be missing anything. The area has really picked up its craft brew/home brew scene recently.


Apparently Arsenal City Brewing passed it's first public opinion test! Now I just need to work on a logo!

bused to Moline schools. apparently, the bridge from the arsenal into Moline couldn't handle the weight of a school bus, so we would cross the river into and through RI into Moline. When they closed that bridge for repairs, it was cross the other way into Davenport, through Bettendorf and back over into Moline.

whew

I was 13 or 14, so Wilson Jr. High, sister 2 years older went to Moline HS.

I made it through about the first 8 pages of this thread. Pretty Interesting/entertaining stuff.

My call sign at work is Motor 30. As a joke, I put a label on the bottles of Pumpkin Spice Porter I gave away for Christmas. The beer was from Motor Thirty Brewing. So far, that's the best I got.

My brother has suggested a new name: Dancing Monk Brewery. He claims the old one (Barefoot Friar) reminds him "of piously unwashed feet". We're going to try it out awhile and see if it sticks.
