Legendary wrestler visits Vinton today
VINTON – Wrestling fans can meet Hawkeye legend Dan Gable at Fareway Friday, Oct. 26 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
The 1972 Olympic champion will be helping promote the new beer which bears his name – Gable Gold.
The beer is brewed by SingleSpeed Brewery in Waterloo, which is in sight of the Gable Museum. The beer was introduced last year as Munich Helles Lager. It was also called Gable’s Gold. Sold in the brewery’s tap room in 2017, it became the biggest seller.
Now it is sold year round with $1 of each sale benefitting the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum.
Naturally, the beer’s packaging is black and gold and is now on the shelves of Fareway and other grocery stores.
