Radicle Effect Brewerks hosts the Quad Cities Tap Takeover every year, this being the fourth. It is always such a cool event because the local brewers all pony up a keg of their best brew and come out for the night. It is a gathering of the creative forces of the area, on tap and in person.

The beer list has now been finalized, and here is what REB is serving. (Beers get tapped at 5pm.)

Radicle Effect Brewerks will have 2 of their own on draft, the Dark Forest and the Hefe Pina.

Geneseo Brewing Co. will have an IPA on tap.

Bent River is bring a Double Uncommon variant, the Aztec, a brew inspired by Mexican hot chocolate.

Blue Cat is sending the Rambling Raspberry.

Great River will deliver their Honey Hemp.

Lionstone is bringing a kettle sour, the Prussian Creek.

Front Brewing Co. will have their all Centennial Hop IPA.

Green Tree will be bringing a keg of their Citra HopAlong.

This should be a pretty fun and delicious event, don’t miss it!
