We are gearing up for the best pre-St. Patty's Day party around town -- the Cedar Rapids Beer Summit!

Enjoy unlimited sampling of more than 100 craft beers and ciders from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. (VIP at 5 p.m.). It all goes down Saturday, March 12 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Cedar Rapids.

Now, since it's a St. Patrick's Day celebration, we want you to go green. You can dress up in the lovely Balloons Etc. leprechaun costume like the man pictured above did OR you can come up with your own costume creation of green.

Whatever it may be, just come dressed in your St. Patty's Day best for the 'Wearin of the Green' costume contest! The best dressed gets a $50 gift card to the after party location, Moose McDuffy's! Don't worry, if you come in second we'll give you a $30 gift card and we'll even throw in a $20 gift card for third place.

Don't miss out on this fun-filled event and get your Cedar Rapids Beer Summit Tickets now!
