BrewNost is a seriously trendy celebration of the fermented grain, held every fall to benefit the NCSML. BrewNost! 2013 guests will once again lightly imbibe a plethora of premium international beers, expertly matched with savory hors d'oeuvres created by talented Cedar Rapids and Iowa City chefs. We are delighted to be returning to our home along the river for just the second time since the Flood of 2008 and partnering with Doug Alberhasky and the “beer guys” at John’s Grocery for our 10th Anniversary Year. The much anticipated tasting extravaganza will take place on Friday, October 11, 2013!
