If you’re an Iowa beer drinker, or looking for an excuse to come and visit, let me encourage you to to put the Iowa Craft Brew Festival on your calendar for June 16, 1-5 p.m.
Last year’s inaugural fest was well-received, and though this year the space will be expanded to accommodate more revelers, look for the tickets to sell out. Benefiting the Iowa Brewers Guild, the event moves this year to the Locust Street Bridge in Downtown, and will feature over 25 Iowa breweries, along with numerous regional and national breweries and over 100 beers for your sampling pleasure.
Advance tickets are $20 and a limited number of VIP tickets are $25, which you can purchase at Midwest Tix by clicking here. Day of admission tickets will be $30, if there are any left, and Designated Driver admission is $5.
