Daytrotter Pale Horse Pale Ale pours a hazy golden hue capped by a robust and persistent crop of off-white foam. In the inviting aroma, look for prominent fruity notes displaying some floral citric character as well as touches of honeydew and berry, mild tropical notes, and a bit of spice. These aroma notes carry through nicely onto the flavor, too, which also boasts a solid backbone of lightly bready and wheaty pale malts. Hop bitterness comes through as moderate, easily balancing a faint bit of residual sweetness and amplifying some notes of citrus blossoms, melon, and herbal spice. This tasty pale ale is quite food-friendly, pairing up nicely with such dishes as Asian salads, teriyaki chicken with grilled pineapple, or shrimp sautéed in lemon and garlic, among many others. Cheers!
Starting his own microbrewery had always been a dream of Tim Koster, owner of Koski Home Brew Fixens in the Historic District of Moline, IL. One day in 1996, homebrewer and Koski customer Darron Morris asked Tim what it would take to start up a microbrewery. The two summoned the courage to turn their dreams into reality, and Bent River Brewing Company was born in 1997. With the help of several investors, they were able to purchase the remainder of the 1922 Italian Renaissance-style building that housed the homebrew store, and then transform it into a brewpub. The company received an award for their renovation of the building by the Moline Preservation Society. The brewpub features a full menu and plenty of beers on tap, and remains a popular watering hole for the local fans of good craft beer.
In 2012, Bent River Brewing Company added a second location in order to address their need for increased production capacity. Located in Rock Island, this new package brewery houses a new bottling line and shipping center, allowing the company to efficiently brew and distribute their beer throughout the area. The location also features a tasting room where you can sample any of Bent River's several year-round beers as well as their rotating seasonals.
