Nerdspeak Brewery is a fun concept looking to open late Summer 2020 in the Bettendorf area. The beer they tried was a Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout called "I Aim to Misbehave" (fans of the show Firefly might know this reference) and it features several types of roasty malts, cocoa and local cold pressed coffee from Redband.
Aaron Ickes, founder of Nerdspeak, told us that he plans to name his beers after quotes from such shows and movies.
A website is in the works but for now, follow Nerdspeak on Facebook @nerdspeakbrewery to get updates on their progress and check out the awesome video of their brewpub concept. The video teases at an arcade style brewpub that has nostalgic arcade and console video game play.
Nerdspeak as well as other new upcoming breweries to the Quad Cities area are being added to the CraftQC.com network for all things that support local.
In the meantime I got an updated list from Brandon Mavis from Craft QC regarding all the QC Breweries.
Galena Ale House in Moline is closed for a couple weeks while they make more beer and bring it down from Galena
Five Cities in Bettendorf is now open again, I know, Nice!

Besides buying beers to-go, there are other great ways to support local breweries during this shutdown is to purchase merchandise like shirts, hats or glassware. Buy some gift cards to use later or share with friends and family for birthdays or holidays. And one of the simplest ways to help are to share social media posts so they reach even more people.
