Hi everyone,

Can't help you on Cedar Rapids - have not been to any of the bars/pubs there. But, if you have a vehicle and don't mind a short drive - I always recommend John's Grocery just down the road in Iowa City if you want "beer buying paradise." One of the best beer selections you will ever see in your life; 20-30 minutes away. If you are looking to take any "supplies" home, can't beat it.

If your downtown there a few good places the homebrew club meets at bricks a lot. White Star Ale house and Parlor City are pretty good as well. Outside of downtown Zeppelins on edgewood has a good tap selection and 2 for 1 3-6 every night. 3rd base brewery on Blairs ferry is a nice brew pub with a good tap selection as well I'm sure they are but at least I have a start for you.

Find one that has TG Brews on tap (Toppling Goliath from Decorah, IA). Their beers are fantastic. Parlor City indicates they have it.

+1 ..... only 9 miles from my house to the TG Taproom...... reminds me - I should probably go get some

Golden Nugget and Pseudo Sue are my two favorites (both Hoppy IPA's)

I was at 3rd base a few months ago and I had two of their beers, both lousy.
