Barrel Aged Velvet Release

Big Grove Brewery1225 S Gilbert StIowa City, IA52240 Map We are excited to ...

We are excited to present you with Barrel Aged Velvet. This special brew is an Extended Boil Imperial Stout that we aged in freshly emptied Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. The beer was aged for a year and then finished on Grade A Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans. You can expect a viscous mouthfeel, notes of roasted malt, marshmallow, dark chocolate, and an explosion of vanilla—highlighted by a smoothness that only comes from age and using the finest ingredients.

We offer BA Velvet to you as an escape from life's stressors, and a celebration of what is good in life.
Many thanks and cheers,
The Big Grove Team

Price: $50 per bottle | Limit 3 bottles per person

16th Annual Virtual Courage Ride
For Sarcoma Cancer Research
University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center Sarcoma Research Program
August 1-15, 2020

Courage Ride is an annual bike ride honoring the life of Seth Bailey, a courageous young man who died at age 25 from sarcoma cancer in 2003. His parents, Jackie and Tom Bailey partnered with Bicyclists of Iowa City (BIC) to create a ride that all levels of cyclists can enjoy! All proceeds from the Courage Ride go to the University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center Sarcoma Research Program. Since the first ride in 2005, Courage Ride has raised over $610,000 for sarcoma cancer research. To date, Courage Ride proceeds have seeded numerous sarcoma cancer research grants. Many of those grants have evolved into promising, larger scale research studies. This newfound momentum in the Sarcoma Research Program has created a lot of enthusiasm among researchers, investigators, doctors and cancer care providers at the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center. The results are leading to new advancements, new partnerships and attracting some of the best research talent in the nation. Patient lives are being made better as a result of these research studies and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center is gaining worldwide recognition for its expertise in advancing sarcoma research.
