While we’re lucky enough to be able to drink Schlafly beer, the Repeal of Prohibition festival provides a fantastic chance to try beers from around the country that you may not have ever sampled before. And, even if you have had them, how often have you had a chance to try them in your own backyard?
Like many other areas in the Midwest, Iowas has quickly put together a bunch of breweries. This year Schlafly will be hosting Peace Tree Brewing Co. (Knoxville), Great River Brewery (Davenport), and Backpocket Brewing Co. (Coralville). Here’s a list of what they’re bringing:
