The tour will include tastings of amazing beers that are not distributed to Iowa. The tour will be followed by a multi-course dinner at the wonderful downtown restaurant the Butcher & The Boar. Lodging will be provided in a downtown hotel. The group will travel back to Iowa City the following morning. The trip will be led by Mission Creek staff/chaperones.
