Events And A New Big Beer From Millstream Brewing
Many of you know that on March 10, 2010 Iowa changed the definition of beers over 5% ABW from ‘Liquor’ to ‘Beer’. Iowa brewers will now be able to brew and sell high proof beers. Governor Culver signed SF 2088 which included a provision that put all beer up to 15% ABV in the hands of beer distributors.
This opens up the market to hundreds of new brands and products and allows Iowa microbreweries to brew a wider variety of styles that traditionally contain more alcohol.
As a result of this Millstream Brewery will be brewing our first high proof beer next week! We will be making a Weizen Bock which is a dark unfiltered wheat beer. The alcohol content will be about 8+%. We will be kegging most of the beer, but hopefully a limited quantity will be available in 22 oz. bombers in some stores and at the brewery. Should be available around the first of June.
We hope to bring out 4 different high proof beers this year and let our customers choose which one we will go into actual production with.
