Illiniois Breweries are Opening Up Friday…That’s What’s Tappening
I talked with Glenn Cole, Director of Operations, at Midwest Ale Works who is excited about opening back up on Friday! The outdoor patio over there is still something you'll want to check out this summer...but indoor is an option & we're all pumped.
MAW's got a lot of stuff going on.
- The Classic Kolsh will be renamed next week, so if you'd like a shot at naming it...now would be the time to let your opinion be heard!
- The All Together world wide collaboration brew is available. It's a world wide collaboration created to raise support for the craft beer industry.
Cameron from Bent River was along for the Beer of the Week which was Bent's Lemon Drop Sour Pale Ale. A nice intro into sours that reminds people of the lemondrops candy.
By the way Bent has a new Hazy IPA dropping on Friday appropriately called Phase 4.
Next week Glenn's got a huge fun announcement along with the unveiling of the renaming of MAW's flagship beer. So much to look forward to.

Crawford Brew Works / Bettendorf, IA
CBW is back open just in time for some patio beers and food truck season. You can regularly find food trucks set up in the parking lot or on the patio a few days a week, so you don't really ever have the excuse that you can't go grab a brew because you have to go get dinner. Take advantage of the spacious multi-level interior if the outdoors isn't your thing. The friendly servers will take care of you inside or out. Look for new beers to come from Crawford as they are really creative on keeping new taps flowing. They also create crafty cocktails and offer other spirits for everyone. Grab some brews and join in on virtual Yoga on the CBW facebook page Wednesdays as it's done live from the Mezzenine.
