Tap Handle #273: Iron Fist - Renegade Blonde

I've seen two breweries that use fists as their taps: Revolution and Iron Fist. Both are similar, although Revolution taps are colored while I've only seen silver on the Iron Fist. Both are also expensive. This is really a heavy and superb tap.

I couldn't find out much about Iron Fist. They were founded in Vista, California (near San Diego) in 2010 by the Sieminski family. Young brewmaster Brandon Sieminski has won accolades for his recipes, and Iron Fist filled in a hole created from Green Flash Brewery's move from Vista to Mira Mesa, which has caused the brewery to increase in popularity. The family-run business focuses on community and a tight-knit feel. They focus on Belgian-inspired ales, with 10 brews on tap in their brewpub.

Renegade Blonde is a Kölsch Style Blonde with a crisp, malty flavor and a refreshingly bitter finish, not unlike a lager. With age, it develops a mild, fruity character, like an ale. Weighted average on is 3.2 out of 5.
