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.

There will be fun ways to earn more votes for ultra-competitive attendees. The champion will take home the coveted Battle of the Brews trophy and major bragging rights.
