In conjunction with American Craft Beer Week, 60 IBG member breweries open their doors to beer lovers for a daylong series of free VIP tours of their facilities on Saturday, May 20.
Join us for a backstage pass into the brewing process--complete with samples of beer mid- and post-production. Tour de Tanks offers a special opportunity to learn from the brewers who are making the Iowa brewing scene so exciting, so plan your day well (and recruit a designated driver) so that you can tour the fermentation tanks of multiple Iowa breweries in one flavor-filled day!
Tours will take place between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., with each brewery setting its own schedule and tour size limit.
