While we were in Indiana, we stopped twice at Three Floyds Brewpub in Munster.  We’re both investors in the brewpub and like to ‘keep our eye on our investment’ and we also brought our “free pint a day” cards for their rare use.

Courtney spotted the Zeitgeist sticker behind the bar (Zeitgeist is a bike/cycle bar in San Francisco).  We sampled some of the Three Floyds brews, carefully, because many of them are pretty high alcohol. We were just a couple days early for Dark Lord Day, the only day of the year they sell the Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout.  Oh well, have to keep moving.

Once we made it to Iowa, we also stopped in the brewery that’s just (inexplicably) 15 miles from my parents house.  It used to be something like Cedar Brewing Company, but rolled over to Third Base Brewery.  Last time we were there, a couple of holiday seasons ago, the brewer was testing out some flavoring additions to his holiday offering and asked us to give our feedback.  He said he was actually happier working there after they switched to “Third Base” because they gave him a lot more freedom as a brewer.

This time we sampled the Black Cobra Oatmeal Stout (really good), Amber, and IPA.  Seem to be making some great and true-to-style beers there.  We left with a growler of the IPA for having while we’re camping in the Badlands in South Dakota.
