Warning! Graphic Images of Stainless Steel Brew Equipment

stainless steel wort chillerJust arrived 25′ x 3/8″ Stainless Wort Chillers and 8 gallon Stainless Steel Kettle with tri-cald bottom and 2 piece SS ball valve. These beauties would really dress up anybody’s brew system.

Stay tuned, as Chris is redoing the draft dispensing system at Leaning Tower Pizza to serve more craft beer! Here’s a sneak peak of the stainless steel tap tower that was built by one of our fabulous customers and also a member of the Ankeny Area Brew Club.


Father’s Day Brew Class Special

fatherFather’s Day is June 24th this year and do you want to get dad another TIE (or another equally lame gift) this year? We didn’t think so. We have the perfect gift to prevent that from happening this year. You and Dad will be able to get a hands on experience brewing a 5 gallon batch of beer with Chris. He will take you through brew day, explain the steps, ingredients, and techniques for only $30 for the two of you. Oh, and bring in a 32oz growler for a portion of the beer you made together.

The Brew with Dad classes will be offered June 21 at 11:30am, July 11 at 1:30pm, and July 18 at 1:30pm. Each class will be limited to only 10 people. You can pay the $30 registration and reserve your spots by calling us at the store 515-963-1965 or we’d love to have you register in person at the store. If you’re the first to sign up for that day’s class you get to pick the beer style to brew for your class.

memorialChris and I wanted to let everyone know that we won’t be taking a 3 day weekend, instead we’ll be at the store for normal hours Fri 12-6, Sat 10-5, Sun 11-4. On Sunday, we’re also doing an All Grain class with openings still available.

Have a safe holiday weekend and we’d love to see you this weekend!
