Charlie Cole came in to talk about a great lager brewed by Adventurous Brewing called River Life. Lagers take longer & are harder to brew so they are a bit more rare to find at a brewery.Then we talked about a project Charlie has been keeping secret for a while. He became part owner of Big Swing Brewery who will now be known as Blue Cat Brewing Company! @BlueCatBrewing

He's been in contact with the original owner/brewer Dan Cleveland and will be reviving some of the original award winning recipes that made Blue Cat a true original here in the Quad Cities.

Blue Cat will open officially on November 5, 2021 with a new menu and full lineup of house made beers!

Quad City Pumpkin Patches

It's pumpkin pickin' time in the Quad Cities. Pumpkins make great fall decorations and they are obviously fun to carve. If buying a pumpkin at a store doesn't cut it and you want the full experience of a pumpkin patch, we have the full list of pumpkin patches throughout the Quad Cities. If we are missing any local pumpkin patches, email us here.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
