I talked with Glenn Cole at Midwest Ale Works in East Moline today who was with Jessica from Visit Quad Cities who talked about the 2nd Annual Ale Trail!  All you have to do is visit a local brewery and log into QCAleTrail.com and check in and after a certain amount of stops you get free stuff!!
The QC Ale Trail introduces you to the craft breweries on both sides of the big and bold Mississippi River in the Quad Cities.  This riverfront region has a long history of brewing beer, and we invite you to taste the top-quality pints from our current batch of brewers. -QCAleTrail.com
Mind Your Buzzness is going to be tapped Tuesday at Midwest Ale Works...a collaboration with Twin Span Brewing.  It's a Pale Ale with Orange Blossum Honey and Buzz Bullet Hops.
Don't forget it's Octoberfest season!  There are a ton of breweries that are releasing their seasonal beers so get out & support them!

CraftQC.com Brewery of the Month for September
Stompbox Brewing / Davenport IA

Located on River Drive in Downtown Davenport, Stompbox is the newest brewery in the Quad Cities to open up this year. Located at the epicenter of the flood breach of 2019 this new space was cleaned up and remodeled into one of the chillest spaces to grab a brew in the area. Natural light is captured through large windows with spacious seating inside. It's also the perfect season to grab a table with friends on the patio with views of the river and Lock & Dam 15 across to the Arsenal. Currently releasing new brews regularly you will not get bored with the same ol lineup, as they bring some experimental styles for you to try as craft these amplified ales. A few nights a week you'll find some local favorite food trucks in the lot serving up their tasty menus. The Kitchen Brigade is coming soon as well offering up a full-time in-house food offering. Check them out on facebook and instagram or visit stompboxbrewing.com for more info. Welcome to the QC Stompbox!!

Drink Local. Support Local.
