Cedar Rapids hosts international beer-tasting

Posted: Updated:
On Friday, October 3, BrewNost! 2014 is set to celebrate another year of revelry.

The international beer-tasting will benefit the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) and features both old world and new world beers, wine tasting, live music, a silent auction and more.

“BrewNost! has continued to grow each year and has raised close to $700,000 to support the mission of the NCSML since it began in 2003,” says NCSML President/CEO Gail Naughton.

BrewNost! 2014 is presented by Northwestern Mutual. “BrewNost is such a unique and fun event,” said Scott Zach, Managing Partner with Northwestern Mutual. “We admire what the NCSML adds to not only Cedar Rapids but all of Eastern Iowa, in terms of history, culture and community spirit.”

BrewNost! 2014 will feature locally-produced hors d'oeuvres alongside its international beer and wine offerings. 

Other features at this year's event include:

Tasting tables of world-class brews and beverages from countries around the world in partnership with John's Grocery from Iowa City and two wine tasting tables presented by Ron & Traci Weber of 1st Avenue Wine House.

There will be food from countries around the world, provided by Cedar Rapids/Iowa City restaurants and caterers.

One of the adult events is a Becherovka Liquor tasting - the #1 imported spirit from the Czech Republic and premium handcrafted spirits produced by Lion Bridge Brewing Company, Cedar Ridge Distillery, Mississippi River Distilling Company and The Quarter Barrel, an incoming brewery and arcade set to open in early 2015 in Cedar Rapids.

Non-alcoholic favorites of local origin, including Lisbon's Sutliff Ciders, favorites from Amana's Millstream Brewing Company, a refreshing non-alcoholic brew, and coffee, soda & water.

Live music by Copper Box, a dazzling band that dances in the crossroads of jazz, polka-rock and Czech and Slovak-inspired tunes.

A silent Auction featuring mobile bidding and one-of-a-kind offerings ranging from local to international items.
