July 18, 2018, 5ive Cities Brewing in Bettendorf released their Bikini Bottom Pineapple Wheat (5.7% ABV).  It's hard to think of a time when it wasn't on tap at your local dive bar.

The Great Quad Cities Craft Beer resurgence has brought all sorts of great beer to the outskirts of what's considered the QC "metro".  Nothing makes me happier than walking into a bar with 11 people in it (most of them still there from lunch 6 hours earlier) and seeing "good beer" on tap.

It's one thing to stock a six-pack of Guinness for the occasional "eccentric long hair" but to put great beer on tap means that craft beer, in general, is getting a great foothold in our area.

Much of that is thanks to 5ive Cities pushing their delicious beer, "Bikini Bottom" Pineapple Wheat.  When people taste good beer...they want more of it.  Cheers!

5ive Cities is celebrating its 4-year anniversary and will feature 4 new specialty beers!

  • Kathyrn’s Double Nickel Pils!

"This amazing crisp & refreshing German Pilsner will be served using a traditional side pour tap faucet. If you haven’t experienced this method yet, you are in for a treat!"

  • Carpe all the Diems

"The latest sour release. Big, juicy, & full of dark fruit!"

  • Teenie Weenie Pink Bikini

"Our Raspberry Bikini Bottom variation comin at you just in time for summer!"

The final beer release for 5ive Cities' 4-year anniversary is…

  • Evil Morty Hazy IPA

“This seems like a good time for a drink and a cold calculated speech with sinister overtones”

They'll have live music from Levi Craft as well as a hog roast and lots of giveaways!

Break out your fav Hawaiian shirt and we will see you on June 11th!!
