Independence BrewBQ and Bike Ride Too!


Party Ride

Distance - 25 miles

The Independence BrewBQ is a one day outdoor festival featuring BBQ vendors, live music, a Craft Brew Zone, a bike ride and is a fundraiser for charity at the same time! This year is our 13th year and we are looking to make it the biggest and best yet.

Admittance into Riverwalk Parks is FREE with the opportunity to purchase delicious barbecue and brews on tap. Everyone can enjoy live music from our headlining band Urban Legend and opener Cedar Junction. Those wishing to check out the Craft Brew Zone can purchase brew tasting passes in advance or the day of the event.

The Craft Brew Zone is a separate fenced area with over 100 craft brews from breweries and home brewers. Each paid entrant will receive a commemorative BrewBQ glass for the tastings, and several hours to taste all of the magnificent creations from home brewers and breweries alike. Tasters are welcome to come and go as they please from the Craft Brew Zone until 7pm.

Really into craft beer? Purchase a limited V.I.P. Craft Brew Zone pass to gain early entry into the tasting area starting at 3pm. Taste some exclusive options during the V.I.P. hour, get a first crack at the full list of options and chat with our brewers. Craft Brew Zone participants must be at least 21 years old to enter and take part in the tasting. No one under the age of 21 is permitted into the Craft Brew Zone.

The BrewBQ Bike Ride Too! is set to kick off early in the morning. Ride at your own pace around the beautiful rolling landscape of Buchanan County all on hard surfaced roads - some of the best in the state. Participants can register for the ride only or for the ride plus craft brew tasting.

Even more information can be found on our website at The Independence Fire Department is our official 2018 charity partner. They are looking forward to upgrading their grass fire suppression equipment to better protect Independence and surrounding rural areas. 


The ride begins in Independence with stops in Winthrop and Quasqueton. The ride ends back in Independence at Riverwalk Parks for live music and craft brew zone taste testing.
