The beer isn’t the first from Exile to don the name of a dead idol. Shortly after the death of David Bowie in 2016 the brewery launched “The Rise of Ziggy Sourdust,” a dark Berliner-Style Weisse with chocolate and sour cherry that can be found in bottles or on tap.

A John Lemon launch party is scheduled for 4 p.m. on June 9 at the Exile taproom, 1514 Walnut St. Starting June 13, a limited supply of the beer will be available in bottles and kegs at central and eastern Iowa restaurants, bars and grocery retailers.

Des Moines Beer Week, founded in 2014, features a number of craft beer-related events across the metro. Self-described as a week that “aims to celebrate the Des Moines area’s growing craft beer scene,” events include the Iowa Craft Brew Festival, a meet the brewers night and beer sensory workshop.
