Opening a brewery in the tiny Wright County town of Clarion was no small move for Willie and Teresa Lancaster and their business partners. It was an even bigger move for the Lancasters to open a second Timbukbrü on their own amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Perhaps the only easy part of the decision was where to open the second location.

Timbukbrü co-owner Willie Lancaster said the new location in Iowa Falls has the same vibe as the original craft brewery in Clarion. But subtle differences makes it unique. The new business opened last Friday

Willie and Teresa Lancaster's new Iowa Falls brewery, Timbukbrü, is catching the eyes of passersby at the intersection of Washington Avenue and River Street. Another attention-grabber is the couple's rat rod car, which has been parked out front since the business opened on July 10.

Owners Willie and Teresa Lancaster have spent nearly a year renovating the building on the southeast corner of Washington Avenue and River Street to become the new Timbukbrü brewery location. Most recently, it was a hair salon, but decades ago it was known as the Pop Shoppe.
