Early access is available for VIP ticket holders from 2:00—3:00 PM. Sip and socialize as breweries across Iowa and the Midwest put their beer in the ring and battle it out for the top spot. Breweries will have the chance to either create a specialty brew or put in a tried and true brew to compete in the battle.
