The first ever Modist/Junkyard collab is here.


📰⚡️🚨🐮📰⚡️🚨⚡️📰 We proudly present to you, The Bar Side: a two-part collaborative series from Junkyard Brewing Company and Modist Brewing Co. Instead of giving you the same beer brewed at both breweries, we’ve decided to double the fun and give you two versions of a beer that includes some of our favorite ingredients. Here’s the breakdown:
Episode 1: Betsy’s Bright Idea. A blondie milk stout brewed with coffee ☕️from Wesley Andrews, cacao nibs 🍫, peanut🥜, and lactose🥛. Brewed at Modist.
Episode 2: Betsy’s Dark Secret. A chocolate milk stout brewed with coffee☕️, cacao nibs🍫, peanut🥜, and lactose🥛. Brewed at Junkyard.
Both beers will debut on tap on Sunday at the Modist + Junkyard Brewing Tap Takeover at Pig Ate My Pizza featuring all-you-can-eat pizza and all-you-can-drink Junkyard/Modist beer. Both beers will be released in cans (Junkyard in crowlers, Modist in tallboys) at liquor stores beginning Tuesday, January 29th! Both beers will go on tap at our respective taprooms (Ep 1 at Modist, Ep 2 at Junkyard) on Tuesday as well.
Oh, and both beers sport artwork inspired by one of our favorite cartoonists, Gary Larson 🐮🍻
