Cabin Fever Day

JANUARY 2021

We’re all too familiar with Iowa winters.

The ice and snow and blistering cold tends to keep us inside a bit more than we’d like. So, every year on a mid January Sunday, just when we’re experiencing the coldest temps of winter, we give everyone a reason to break the “Cabin Fever” mood, and invite all who’ll join us to a potluck lunch in our taproom!

We encourage everyone to bring a dish to share, we’ll even throw a free beer your way if you do! We provide all the plates, bowls, utensils, and napkins, all we need is you. Bring your favorite board game to play, or choose one from our huge selection, and hunker down for an afternoon of fun. If that isn’t enough to get you out of the house, this is one of the few days of the year that we offer our “Throwback Mug” special. Just bring in a mug or glass of ours from any of our previous events and receive $1 off beers all day!
