I talked with Glenn Cole from Midwest Ale Works in East Moline about their contest to name the flagship kolsh style beer.  Head there now to get inspired.
Glenn met with the folks at Stompbox Brewing in Davenport.  He got to taste some beers, meet their brewers and is excited for them to open on July 1st right next to Front Street Brewery.
His beer of the week is from Radicle Effect called El Hefe Pena.  Perfect patio beer for perfect patio drinking weather.
As of Friday 6/12 Iowa-based breweries are fully open for business, no limits on capacity! Illinois-based breweries continue to operate outdoor-only service. Social distancing recommendations are still in place to ensure the safety of public and employees. Quad City area breweries are still offering curbside or carry-out orders as well. You can place orders online or you call ahead to make sure it's ready when you arrive.

CraftQC.com Brewery of the Month / June 2020

Crawford Brew Works / Bettendorf, IA

CBW is a great spot for 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.
