Join us for the 15th Anniversary of BrewNost on Friday, September 14, 2018.


Come experience a magical evening of the best beers and fine food at the 15th edition of BrewNost, the Midwest’s premier international beer festival. BrewNost will feature a wide range of international beers selected from Doug Alberhasky, from John’s Grocery in Iowa City. All beverages will be specially paired with culinary creations by chefs from some of the area’s finest restaurants. In addition, local breweries and distilleries will offer distinctive brews and beverage creations, including wine, cider, and spirits.

Returning this year will be the successful and popular Live Auction, led once again by celebrity auctioneer Nicholas “Nicho” Lowry, president of Swann Auction Galleries in New York City and frequent appraiser on the PBS series Antiques Roadshow.

Treat yourself to a memorable night of froth, food, fun, fellowship, and festivities while supporting the educational and cultural mission of the NCSML, recognized as one of the nation’s best ethnically based museums. And while attending BrewNost shows your values, it’s also a great value. Enjoy unlimited sampling of delicious food and tantalizing beverages at this all-in-one night out!

Come one, come all to the trendiest, tastiest evening in all the land, BrewNost 2018. We’ll see you on September 14.
