Boulder brewery Twisted Pine is expanding distribution to Iowa.

Twisted Pine has been brewing craft beer for Boulder since it opened in 1995 and has opened distribution across the Great Plains. Last year, the company added three new states to its distribution base.

“The decision to go with the Johnson Brothers distribution company in Iowa was in large part due to the successful relationship Twisted Pine has enjoyed with the distributor’s Nebraska brand for the past two years,” Bob Baile, president of the brewery, says in a press release.

Twisted Pine staples Hoppy Boy IPA and Raspberry Wheat will be available alongside the brewery’s award-winning Big Shot Espresso Stout and Ghost Face Killah, the spiciest beer in the world, according to Twisted Pine.


Mimi’s Café, a national restaurant chain, collectively raised $158,000 for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement in February, which was National American Heart Month.

The Go Red for Women campaign was created by women for women in 2004 and is the AHA’s national movement to stop heart disease in women. The campaign raises money for scientific research and educational programs to teach women about their risk of heart disease as well as how to prevent it.

Mimi’s offered free soup every Thursday in February to patrons who made a donation as well as displayed heart-shaped tribute cards in the restaurant for every $1 donation.

“Mimi’s is touched by the huge hearts of our guests who made a contribution during American Heart Month,” Karen Eadon, vice president of marketing for Mimi’s Café, says in a press release.

All donations went to the American Heart Association.
