The return of one of the original craft breweries in the Quad Cities happens November 5th. Today, owner/brewer, Charlie Cole brought me a revived recipe from the original Blue Cat called Off The Rails Pale Ale.  It's made with ingredients from England and is more flavorful & hoppy than a normal "pale ale."  You may notice it's darker color. Charlie and I noticed that more you drink the more the malts shine through and the bitterness subsides.

Blue Cat Brewing Company will reopen in their Rock Island location officially on November 5, 2021 with a new menu and full lineup of house made beers!
