Out of Decorah, IA. Just wondering if anyone has heard of it or tried the beers.

One of my favorite breweries. Can't wait to until they start bottling. I live in the Iowa City area and various places put on tap takeovers every couple months or so. I'm looking for a recipe similar to their Dorothy's right now!

The Intergalactic IPA is the most amazing beer I've had this year. Galaxy/warrior combo.

Their beers are FANTASTIC and staff PHENOMENAL! I highly recommend all their IPAs and Stouts. Murphy's Irish Red is really, really good. If you are lucky enough to catch Naughty Temple when you are in the tap room, have a few. I can't say enough how lucky we are to have TG here in Decorah.

PseudoSue
Intergalactic Warrior
Millennium Falcon

All some of the best IPA's I've tasted! If you get the chance, try their beers! You won't be disappointed!

We are lucky enough to have a few bars locally that get kegs in frequently, but I can't wait until they get their new brewhouse online and start bottling and distributing.

Bottles will be glorious indeed.

How is the brewery tour at TG?

They don't have tours yet. They are in the middle of brewery expansion...adding a 30bbl house adjacent to their current 10bbl house. They are hoping to have it operational around the first of the year. When it is complete, I believe they are going to have tours and a tasting room. Also with expansion comes a bottling line! Excellent for those who can't make it to our neck of the woods.

I walked all over downtown Iowa city looking for the intergalactic warrior. No luck, but did see a good number of TG taps.

I made a warrior/glacier/galaxy ipa that is only two weeks in the bottle and pretty great. It's filling the void until I can find more intergalactic warrior!

If you're ever in CR, check Parlor City or Bricks. They've had it quite a bit lately.

Toppling Goliath is my favorite brewery hands down (I'm an IPA guy). They have so many great IPA's. I'm from Iowa City and got a chance to go to the tap room when I was in Decorah for a wedding and got to try a lot of their beers. I think the Pseudo Sue is still my favorite but the Intergalactic Warrior was a hop heavy great beer. The beers are very well balanced. I am always trying to get people to try their beers because they say they don't like hoppy beer. When they try a Golden Nugget it's fun to watch the eyes open up. TG made me love craft beer and start brewing my own.
