For the 15th straight year, Benz Beverage Depot is throwing a party!

Join the fun at Benz this Saturday, from 2-5 p.m. The Beerfest will feature samples from local, regional and national breweries. There will be live music from Dr. Z's experiment and all VIP ticket-holders receive a special Benz tasting glass and can start the sampling one hour early.

Tickets are $35 for general admission and $45 for VIP. The event, like always, will be held outside in the parking lot. I know we are all hoping for warm weather!

If you like craft beer, this is the event for you. If you want to learn more about craft beer and sample some new brews, this event is also for you! Benz is located at 501 Seventh Avenue SE in downtown Cedar Rapids.

If you decide to attend and take part in the sampling, please make sure to have a designated driver lined up. Let's make sure everyone gets home safe so we can do this again next year!
