Templeton Red Returns!

Templeton Red Returns!

After aging for 12 months in Templeton Rye Prohibition Era Whiskey barrels, our very own Templeton Red has been transferred and will soon be reappearing in 22 oz. bombers and draft!

We’re excited to bring it back again for the 2015-2016 winter season!  It will be available in 22 oz. bottles through our taproom starting December 21st, 2015 and will start shipping out to retailers after Christmas.

As it’s stated on the label:

“There was a time when alcohol was forbidden in America, creating a void filled only by the times’ most daring entrepreneurs. For this unique beer, we’ve proudly joined forces with Templeton Rye Spirits in Templeton, Iowa and their infamous prohibition-era whiskey. Aged 12 months in Templeton Rye casks, this red ale hints of whiskey, vanilla and oak. Drink inconspicuously or boldly share it with friends.”


Here’s a little bit about our partnership with our friends at Templeton Rye:

Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC is the maker of Templeton Rye Prohibition Era Whiskey.  The company was founded in Templeton, Iowa in 2001 to re-create the town’s fabled Prohibition era rye whiskey.  During Prohibition, residents of the town secretly produced rye whiskey which quickly earned the name, “The Good Stuff”.  The popular spirit was bootlegged into speakeasies in Chicago and was said to be the notorious mobster Al Capone’s favorite drink. In 2006, Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC was produced.

    Can you tell me if there is any Templeton Red currently being sold in stores or resturants in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area?

    Very good beer!

    I was wondering how to find where this is being sold. I’ve had it at 30 Hop in Coralville, but other places I have checked (like Iowa Chophouse in Iowa City) do not carry it. Do you have a list of who has this available? I’ve had it once and loved it! Anywhere in Cedar Rapids/Iowa City would suffice. Thanks!

      Glad to hear you enjoy the Templeton Red, Aaron!

      We release a limited number of kegs of this beer just once a year, so draft goes quickly. 22 oz bombers were shipped out for distribution and may still be available in your local retailers, such as Hy-Vee, John’s Grocery, Benz or New Pioneer Co-op. If not there, we still have bottles here in our taproom if you desire a mini roadtrip. Cheers!
