Whoops, that is next Monday-Thursday.



Is that Reds in North Liberty?


Yep
Customer Appreciation Weekdays with Green Flash Growlers - Monday 3-11 through Thursday 3-14. $6 growlers of West Coast IPA and Hop Head Red IPA. Because you've supported us and our love of beer, we want to fill your growlers with righteous IPAs.

Enjoy,
Bill

also $4 pints of those during that time and they are happy to fill a growler of Miller Lite for $40 bucks :P

Here are a couple favorites from a recent tasting session:

Palate Wrecker from Green Flash: 155 IBUs
Devil Dancer triple IPA from Founders: 112 IBUs, $20 for a four-pack.

Picked up a couple of these at the local Dahl's equivalent. They have a build-your-own-six-pack section, and it's a flat $10/pack, but it was on sale for $9/pack. Somebody made the mistake of putting Palate Wrecker in there, since the 4-packs were nearby at $13/pack.

Did you have bottled? Did you notice how heavy the bottle was? I swear it was like double the weight of a normal 12oz bottle.

All the Green Flash 12 oz bottles I've had are heavy like that. Seems kind of wasteful to me, but I like what's inside :P

Is it to make it look bigger than it is? Seems unlikely. Maybe better protection or longevity for the product? Interesting decision.
