A great mix of resources coming today as Great River Brewery and Mississippi River Distilling work together on some specialty releases and a new tasting room. This from QCTimes:
Mississippi River Distilling Co. co-owner Ryan Burchett said the distillery and Davenport’s Great River Brewery are partnering on an expansion to the distillery building that will allow the brewery to brew specialty beers on site in LeClaire and create a tasting room that will serve both companies’ products.
Burchett said the two companies have been collaborating on marketing projects and on products. The brewery has used old whiskey caskets from the distillery to make beer, and the distillery plans to distill beer from the brewery into a beer whiskey.
