    • From Mississippi River Distilling Co.: New release – Farmer Brown Whiskey. In conjunction with our friends at Great River Brewery, we are excited for the newest member of our "Still Crazy" family. We took over 3,000 gallons of Farmer Brown Ale wash and distilled the alcohol out of it. We put that spirit into used Cody Road Bourbon barrels and let it soak for over two years. The result is a wonderfully unique exploration of the brew. During First Friday, buy a bottle, get a free beer can shaped pint glass with the Great River Brewery, MRDC, and Farmer Brown Whiskey logos on it. Barrel Aged Boetje's Mustard - One of the quintessential flavors of the Quad Cities hits the whiskey with Boetje's new Cody Road Bourbon Barrel Aged Mustard. The mustard aged in used whiskey barrels brings a unique sweetness with the signature Boetje's bite. Available exclusively at MRDC’s retail location and at the Boetje's gift shop. Try it at First Friday! In the kitchen, Chef Steph will have Cody Road Bourbon blondies and an Iowish Whiskey shrimp and sweet chowder. In the bar they will have two great ways for you to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with their new Iowish Whiskey: try a sample of the "Luck O' The Iowish" or a "Leprechaun Kiss".
