Iowa is a wrestling state. For generations, clubs and high schools across Iowa have turned out champion wrestlers. Iowa State University and the University of Iowa have dominated the Division I collegiate wrestling scene. Take Down is our salute to that heritage. A classic Irish dry stout, Take Down’s backbone is Simpson’s two-row Golden Promise malt for sweetness and character, along with roasted barley and a little pale chocolate malt. English Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops provide the bittering and Irish ale yeast adds authenticity. Like a well executed wrestling take down, Irish stout can surprise you, with a lighter body and mouth-feel seemingly at odds with its very dark color. Lower alcohol level also encourages you to wrestle with multi-pints of this dark-but-light stout.

Aroma is yeast/earthy, dark roasted malts and mild nuttiness. The flavor is dark roasted malts, mild/medium nuttiness, coffee and a slightly tart/dry finish.
