The Little Giant Beer Summit returns to El Bait Shop for its second installment on Sept. 20, and while I’d recommend going because last year was a blast, I’d also encourage you to attend because I’ll be on hand from 3-5 p.m. signing copies of my latest book, Iowa Pints.
This year, the celebration the giant celebration of Iowa’s little breweries will feature nearly 40 breweries and over 70 Iowa beers on tap (rain or shine). You should go. What time? 3-7 p.m.
“I thought last year’s event could not be topped, but the quality and variety of the beers this year are nothing short of amazing,” said Jeff Bruning, founder of the event.
Some of the beers this year are Confluence’s Barrel-aged DBA Centennial, Peace Tree’s Sour Mash Saison, WestO’s CocO Stout, Backpocket’s Barrel Aged Barleywine and Exile’s Beatnik Sour Cherry Berlinerweiss, to name just a few. The new breweries at this year’s Little Giant are Big Grove (Solon), Captain’s Quarters (Adel), Deal Orchard (Jefferson), Firetrucker (Ankeny) and Lion Bridge (Cedar Rapids).
