FORT MADISON – Southeast Iowa is gearing up for the 4th Annual Fort Madison Barley Hops, Friday May 17, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 pm. This year’s event is well on its way to again provide you the opportunity to find a new flavor just in time for the summer months ahead.
Vendors participating include: East Grove Farms (Salem, Iowa), Exile Brewing (Des Moines, IA), IaBev Distribution (former Fleck Sales), Iowa Brewing Company (Cedar Rapids), Front Street Brewing Company (Davenport, Iowa), Golden Eagle Distributing (Mt Pleasant), Iowa Brewing Company (Davenport, IA), Keg Creek Brewing (Glenwood, Iowa), V’s Brew Pub (Keokuk, Iowa), Wilson’s Orchard (Iowa City)
“We will head to a new location this year due to the past weather-related issues, not to mention the flood waters standing where we would normally be set up”, said Tim Gobble, Executive Director Fort Madison Partners.
“The event will be held at the Baxter Sports Complex, 909 48th Street, where there is plenty of parking, covered space in case of inclement weather for both patrons and vendors and all the amenities that go along with the complex”.
Get your commemorative tasting pilsner glass at the Fort Madison Partners office during regular business hours or the day of event for $15.00.
“We are setting the event up the same as last year, having all the vendors in one location providing the ability for people to enjoy the event while they mingle from one vendor to the other,” Gobble said. “This way the participants will be able to try all the flavors within the time frame”.
