Kick off your summer by savoring some of the best local and regional craft beers at the annual Lager ‘Lympics, presented by the members of Metro North Rotary (MNR).

This outdoor beer tasting event takes place in the heart of Cedar Rapids’ trendy and bustling NewBo district. With 4 hours to sip on a variety of craft beers poured directly from the brewers, enjoy your favorites while discovering new and seasonal brews. Featuring DJ Commando, pretzels, a 5 oz. souvenir mug and jumbo yard games add to the fun. Souvenir mugs will be available to the first 300 attendees to register on the day of the event. If you want a mug, plan to arrive at the start of the event! And where there is beer, there must be food. Select NewBo City Market food merchants will have local fare available for purchase.

  • Advance Ticket Price:  $25 (before May 31)
  • General Admission Ticket Price:  $30
  • DD Ticket Price:  $5 (Perfect for those not interested in sampling the beer. Does not include pretzels or souvenir mug.)

Besides great beer, you also don’t want to miss the MNR Lager ‘Lympics Raffle featuring the Luxury Suite for the Rough Riders, and other great prizes! Additional prizes will be given for 2nd and 3rd place. The drawing will be held onsite at 3:00pm. You don’t need to be present to win.

  • 1 raffle ticket = $5
  • A Six Pack:  $20 (6 raffle tickets)
  • A Case: $50 (24 raffle tickets)

Craft Brews for a Cause!
