The Quad City music website Daytrotter has been an indie rock tastemaker for nearly a decade. Now they’re moving in a hoppier direction with Daytrotter Pale Ale from the Des Moines brewery Exile.
To celebrate the beer, Daytrotter is giving a free one-year subscription to any Iowan that wants one. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with “IA” in the subject line.
Daytrotter posts multiple sessions of exclusive music every day. Wilco, Andrew Bird, Metric, Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes, Tori Amos and others have recorded at Daytrotter over the years, along with Iowa bands like Annalibera, Twins, Christopher the Conquered, Land of Blood and Sunshine and others.
Earlier this year Daytrotter gave everyone in the Quad Cities a free membership as a Valentine’s Day present.
Daytrotter Pale Ale will make its debut Wednesday at at a Jim Adkins concert at Codfish Hollow Barnstormers in Maquoketa, Ia. It will be available starting Thursday at Exile Brewery and in bottles at stores around Iowa.
