Yeah sure...the actual Firecracker run isn't for another couple weeks but I really enjoy the idea of a party BEFORE the party! While you may be training for the run...I'm busy training for the party. Let me ask you this: What is the best part of the race? When you're finished and you get a half an orange and an ice cold lager. See? I'm right!

Come join the fun for the Firecracker Run KICK OFF PARTY!

Thursday June 17, 2021 at 5:30pm at Midwest Ale Works in the Rust Belt Complex in East Moline, Il

They’ll be tapping the new eM80 Brew
