When SingleSpeed Brewing founder Dave Morgan decided to open a brewery he'd never brewed a single batch of beer. Morgan saw a need for a brewery in his area and decided he would be the one to do it. He headed to the Siebel Institute to figure out this brewing thing. Everything seemed to have worked out pretty well.
Morgan gives us the rundown on his journey to opening his brewery and the challenges of expanding into an old Wonder Bread plant. As we sip SingleSpeed's Gable Helles Lager we get some info on Iowa wrestling legend Dan Gable, and find out Tim and Dave have an unusual connection through some wrestling friends. We also learn what a single speed bike is and how it differs from a "fixie." And we get the scoop on Tip the Cow Day and all the variants of their delicious cocoa espresso stout they'll serve up.
