Love both coffee and local craft beer? SAME. If you are, you're likely well aware of SingleSpeed Brewing Company, with two tap rooms the Cedar Valley - one in Waterloo and one in Cedar Falls. They just came in first place for the 2019 Des Moines Register Beer Brackets!

According to the Des Moines Register, 64 local beers from 46 different Iowa breweries were put into the bracket, with voting done by beer-lovers all across Iowa. The two finalists in the bracket were Tip The Cow from SingleSpeed Brewing Company and Peanut Butter Porter from Lake Time Brewery in Clear Lake. Tip the Cow ended up winning with 52% of the vote.

And indeed a shout out to Sidecar Coffee as well for their contributions to the brew. Previous winners include West O Beer in Milford, Confluence Brewing Company in Des Moines, and Fenders Brewing in Polk City. As always, Tip The Cow is on tap at both taprooms, and is available in area liquor stores too.
