Brew Ha Ha
Davenport, Iowa
It's a party for your taste buds! It just wouldn't be fall in the Quad-Cities without this favorite beer-tasting event! And this year, the Davenport Jaycees are excited to be continuing the tradition of this popular event!  You can count on lots of fantastic beer to taste from local, regional and national brewers -- that's what Brew Ha Ha is all about.  Take a tour of the American brewing landscape -- one ounce at a time -- from some of the finest brewers. Some are from well-loved places around the QC, while others will offer you something new to sample and sip.  Brew Ha Ha offers just about every type of beer, porter, ale, lager and more – and we couldn't do this event without the generous volunteer spirit of our beer sponsors, and the helping hands of our volunteers. And just like before - the proceeds from this event continue to go to support local charities and programs in the Quad-Cities - like Jaycee Santa or our Impact Projects (the most recent of which was the new library at Camp Abe Lincoln!)

September 28-29, 2018  26th Annual Coca-Cola Days - Atlantic, Iowa
