Ride to Des Moines Urban breweries for American Craft Beer Week on the FUBAR ride. The assault is to see how many breweries one can get to in one day on a bike via the bike trails and a few streets around Des Moines.
You will need to get your punchcard and wristband at Firetrucker Brewery that will get you specials at each brewery to start then you can follow our route or diverge as you tackle this ride..
Hit as many Des Moines Area Breweries as you can in one day on a bike. We have a ride to hit 8 breweries and 2 optional west side breweries that are a new addition this year. We will have a punch card for the breweries that you drink at. Drink at at least 7 of them that day and turn in your punch card for a drawing for 2 fun prizes! (1) Keg Party, (2)Free Growler fill
