New festival brings beer enthusiasts to Coralville


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.
