A decade after opening for the first time, Madhouse Brewing Co. will be closing its doors this month.
“After 10 years in operation, Madhouse will be closing at the end of September,” reads the post on the Des Moines, Iowa-based brewery’s Facebook page. “ We’d like to thank all of the people who have supported us over the years, many of whom have become good friends.”
However, the impending closure won’t stop the brewery from releasing beers, as its last event on Sept. 20 will feature two new creations for fans to take home:
- Sundae Fundae (13.5 percent ABV) — bourbon barrel-aged neapolitan stout brewed with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberries — 375ml bottles ($12) with a six bottle per person purchase limit
- Maui Wowie (7.4 percent ABV) — barrel-aged sour brewed with pineapple and coconut — 500ml bottles ($10) with no purchase limit
In 2009, Madhouse Brewing debuted in its original location in Newton before relocating four years later to its current home in the Des Moines Market District. Madhouse owner Mason Groben also opened Jasper Winery in 2004.
