New festival brings beer enthusiasts to Coralville

Posted:
CORALVILLE (KWWL) -

Hundreds of people showed up in Coralville for its first ever Brrrfest, showcasing winter beers of the Midwest and the people that brew them.

People had a chance to try more than 100 beers from 40 different breweries.

The event was a hit in its first year.

More than 1,800 people took part in the non-profit winter beer festival.

"It's overwhelming for a first year event and it just proves that it's something the community wants and something to keep bringing back year to year," said Jillian Jorgensen of the Iowa City/Coralville Visitors Bureau.

Proceeds from Brrrfest benefit the Iowa Brewers Guild and Coralville's annual 4thfest Celebration.
