Early access is available for VIP ticket holders from 2:00-3:00PM. Sip and socialize as breweries across Iowa 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. A panel of judges will determine the Battle of the Brews victor. Each attendee will have one vote to decide the winner of the People's Choice Award. 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.
