When Quad Cities breweries do collaborations, it gives me a nice feeling.  The comradery of two brewers doing what they love and finding a buddy to do it along with.

It reminds me of the 90's when you'd hear Chris Cornell on an Alice in Chains song.  Or Layne Stayley & Tom Morello coming together to do a Pink Floyd song.

This week there's a Catwalker English Bitter collab brew at Blue Cat Brewing Co. and Twin Span Brewing .  Perhaps an Audioslave type connection?

I Know a Shortcut IPA a collab brew with Wake and Bent River, at Radicle Effect Brewerks.  This is like Alice Mudgarden.  3 great tastes that taste GREAT together
