Save the Date: Brew Debut 

SingleSpeed Brewing Co. & Sidecar Coffee Roasters have teamed up to create an all-new, all-local, specially made brew that will debut on Tuesday, May 17. The Iowa inspired cask ale will be tapped at 4pm & you’re invited to taste the local brew with us! For every beer sold, SingleSpeed Brewing Co. will donate $1 to the co-op AND those who become a founding member-owner at the event will receive their first pour of the ale FREE!! Cheers!
