It's been an amazing QC Craft Beer Week!  Today is the final day before the grand finale featuring the QC Beer Battle on the Belle and Shops with Hops.

As we highlight the QC Breweries each day, it's the perfect time to get in on the QC Ale Trail, a self-guided tour of the local craft breweries, which is celebrating its third year.

Each day during QC Craft Beer Week we focus on different breweries in specific parts of the Quad Cities where they'll have specials, tappings, or fun events on their designated day.

As an added bonus, you can do the Check-in Challenge.  If you go to a brewery every day each week, you can enter to win a Grand Prize basket with merch from all the breweries, but hold can only enter for the prize May 20-27. You can also use these check-ins for the QC Ale Trail for a shot at great prizes.

Today, Friday, May 19, 2022, we celebrate breweries in Rock Island.
