Backpocket Brewing Slingshot

Backpocket Brewing is a local brewery based in Coralville, Iowa.  The first time I tasted their brews was at a local brewfest and I enjoyed their offerings immensely.  While visiting a local winery, I tried Slingshot, as they had it on tap and I was not very impressed with the actual wine offerings.  As the Backpocket Brewing website states, “Don’t let the Slingshot’s color fool you, it has a light body, and smooth, subtle complexities that will remind you to never judge a book by its cover.”
