Listen...if you're going to call yourself "Adventurous Brewing" you can't make JUST the run of the mill lagers & stouts.  You've got to branch out and push the boundaries.

Charlie Cole stopped in to Adventurous' newly opened taproom in Bettendorf and brought in 2 beers that are meant to be drank together.  It was scary at first because he literally told me NOTHING about what we were going to drink before he poured me a glass.

He knows I'm not a sour beer lover.  Quite the opposite mostly.  But as I looked at the label art I was intrigued.  "Heavenly Crisp" and "Devilishly Crisp" was on the men.  Each a Sour Ale with Pickle Juice (with or without peppers).
I'm sorry to say we lost audio with our normal video we shoot in studio (or zoom) but I can say...if you are into pickle juice or sour beers at all you need to try this.
I prefered the "Devilishly Crisp" ale with the peppers because it punched me in the throat nicely after the sour subsided.

3 Doors Down and Monroe at The Rust Belt in East Moline

It was a night to remember at The Rust Belt in East Moline. The 3 Doors Down Better Life 20th Anniversary show. Playing that first iconic album front to back along with all their other hits. Plus, for the first time in the Quad Cities, Local Stage favorites Monroe got things started with a full set of rock. If you haven't been to the Rust Belt yet, we have plenty more shows on the calendar and more planned we can't tell you about yet. So follow us on Facebook and turn on the alerts on your phone so you never miss a show from your concert leader, I-Rock 93.5.
