I talked with Glenn Cole from Midwest Ale Works and Tammy from the East Moline Public Library who invite you to a live beer tasting via Facebook Live.

Live from Midwest Ale Works, they will be tasting 3 different beers called the “library pack.” You may purchase the pack for $15 at Midwest Ale Works - includes three 24 oz cans (enough for two). The 3 beers in the pack include The Maibock, The Single Hop Pale Ale and The Rye Cracker Hefeweizen.

Contact the library for more information: call 309-755-9614 or email us at eastmolinepl@gmail.com

They'll be broadcasting the tasting on the MAW FB page along with the E.Mo Public Library FB page with all sorts of knowledge thrown around regarding brewing!

CraftQC.com Brewery of the Month for July

Knox County Brewing Co. / Galesburg IL

KnoxCo BrewCo is located on Main St. at the West end of Galesburg, IL just off US-34. KCBC will remind you more of a living room rather than a modern day brewery. And that's on purpose. It's an inviting space that currently offers taproom service, including indoor and outdoor seating, as well as Beer and Tacos To-Go. Grab a few brews from the comfort of their cozy space, play some card and board games, listen to live music and relax. Best part is that people of all ages are welcome! Their homemade Sourdough bread returns in July as well. And don't forget the merchandise and gift cards that make the best gifts. It's more than just beer, make sure to stop by KCBC this month!! Follow them on facebook and instagram or visit knoxcobrewco.com for more info!
Drink Local. Support Local.
