A Big Beer Tasting Event is Happening Saturday in the Corridor
Get ready to sample a whole lot of beer! BrrrFest 2023 is coming up this weekend in Johnson County!
BrrrFest is an annual event held in Coralville that's all about beer. The official website says that guests will be able to "sample and purchase craft beers showcased by breweries from across the Midwest." This year's event will feature beers from around 60 different Midwest breweries and cideries. Some of the familiar names include Wilson's Orchard, Cedar Ridge, Iowa Brewing, Lion Bridge, Millstream, Exile, Peace Tree, Toppling Goliath, Big Grove, and Backpocket. You can check out a full list of participating breweries and all the craft beers they will be offering at the event HERE.
In addition to beer tasting, BrrrFest guests will also be able to purchase food and pretzel necklaces at the venue. There are several restaurants within walking distance, as well, including 30hop, Fuzzy's Taco Shop, Marquee Pizzeria, Tribute Eatery & Bar, Backpocket Brewing, and the Iowa Athletic Club.
The 11th annual BrrrFest is set for this Saturday, January 28th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel & Conference Center. Unfortunately, Brewmaster tickets have already sold out, but there are still general admission tickets available. The $50 ticket includes a commemorative BrrrFest 2023 glass that you will use to sample all the beer throughout the afternoon. The website warns that BrrrFest sells out every year, so if you haven't purchased a ticket yet, you'll want to do that ASAP. Designated drivers are also required to purchase a ticket, otherwise they recommend "shopping and dining within the Iowa River Landing" while you wait for your party to finish.
