We are excited to start the tour at Rock Island Brewing Company in The District of Rock Island, Illinois, again this year....which will be opening early at 10 a.m. for Tour de Brew QC.
In collaboration with Cinco de Biko, our first stop will be The Rock Island Boat Club. Riders will be greeted by the aroma of complimentary breakfast in the air. Upon departing The Boat Club, rider's will roll across the historic Rock Island Arsenal bridge to the quaint Village of East Davenport. Brought back by popular demand is BREW, as well as a few new stops, Bootlegger's Sports Bar and Bleyart's Tap. Choose between a wide variety of brews, both coffee and craft beers, or maybe even a glass of vino.
From there riders will follow the trail along the scenic Mississippi River out to The Edge Eatery and Drinkatorium in Rapids City, Illinois. This will be our lunch stop with food/drink specials and MUSIC!
The next stop will be Bass Street Landing where both Steel Head Tavern & Pub 1848 have big plans for you, tour participants can gather on the plaza of Bass Street Landing from 1-5 for Tour de Brew QC for LIVE music, games & festivities.
SOUND LIKE RAGBRAI TRAINING YET?

At RIBCO there will be all day festivities, including special beer tappings, raffles & silent auction at 6 pm, karaoke and if you hang around long enough...LIVE MUSIC!!! Come early, stay late...you don't want to miss out!
Did we forget to mention that each destination on the tour will have a special raffle basket of BREW SWAG, you will receive those raffle entries in your registration packet, to disperse at each location throughout the day.
