CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: Well, it seems this government/private partnership is seeing some measure of success. It's easier when city government (the taxpayer) subsidizes your start-up costs.
Beers from Backpocket Brewing Company started hitting Siouxland shelves yesterday after the Coralville, Iowa, brewery finalized a distribution deal this week with Sioux City's L & L Distributing.
The first truckload of beers arrived Thursday and they are expected to be on retail shelves across the distributor's sales territory shortly.
Beers in the initial Sioux City shipment are: Slingshot Dunkel, Gold Coin Helles, Penny Whistle Wiezen and Scottish Wooden Nickel Peated Lager.
Backpocket, which specializes in German beer styles, opened in the Coralville River Landing development in 2012.
