Contrary Brewing in Muscatine, IA This riverside taproom just got a face lift you'll have to visit in person to check out. The new larger than life mural on the building is sure to be seen from the sidewalk, road, river and Illinois. Contrary has been around for a few years and made a name for their mix of crafted brews ranging in a variety of styles. They invent, they explore, and push the lines of flavors for your palate. You can find live music on the weekends, food trucks throughout the week, and they even offer a small menu of brewery bites out of their own kitchen.
