There is a helpful smile in every aisle at Hy-Vee but don't look behind you as the shadow of the tough-as-nails wrestling legend from the University of Iowa, Dan Gable will soon be lurking those aisles too.

Iowa's News Now reports that the grocery chain has announced a new product bringing Gable into their stores, and making your midsummer grilling sizzle. What a fitting product it is. Beer brats! Gable Beer Brats were created in partnership with Cedar Falls-based Single Speed Brewing.  The brats are made with SingleSpeed's Gable Beer, which can be purchased at any Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits location.

Gable himself will also be making several Hy-Vee appearances to launch the brats at the following stores:

  • Thursday, July 15, 4:30-6:15 p.m.: Crossroads Hy-Vee 1422 Flammang Drive, Waterloo
  • Thursday, July 22, 4:30-6:15 p.m: Marion Hy-Vee 3600 Highway 151 E., Marion
  • Thursday, August 12, 4:30-6:15 p.m.: Altoona Hy-Vee 108 8th St., S.W. Altoona, Iowa
