This Week
It's QC Craft Beer Week and it's loaded with awesomeness. In coordination of American Craft Beer Week, our local celebration of quality crafted brews will be May 10-15. Each day this week we're highlighting breweries in different parts of the Quad Cities regional destination to visit and support. There are new beers, deals on beers, food trucks, game nights and live music happening all week. On Saturday we're kicking off the biggest Tap Takeover of local QC brews at 5ive Cities in Bettendorf starting at 11:00 AM. You can also help raise funds for River Bend Food Bank as 5CB is donating $1 from every pint sold. RSVP and find more info on the official event page on Facebook and visit QC Ale Trail to see What's Tappening this week.

Craft Breweries in the Quad Cities Area

We're very lucky to live in an area with such an amazing, thriving "craft beer scene". You'll be able to find everything you could want.

Not sure what you want? That's ok. The bartenders at these establishments are very well versed and can guide you through a wonderland of Ales and Lagers.

From "coffee infused" to "riff infused".

From "pale ales" to "peanut butter porters".

Fruity, Sour, Hoppy, Malty, Crisp, Crushable beers in all shapes and sizes.

Crowlers, Growlers, Cans & Kegs...the Quad Cities Craft Beer scene has it all.

And of course...a great beer isn't complete unless it's paired with some amazing food. Whether it's made in the breweries kitchen or in the food truck in the parking lot...brewers know that people love food with their beer. 

Take a look at the 19 Quad Cities Area craft breweries!
