Bike Brew Q event a success - Great Bend Tribune
Over 75 cyclists, 200 craft beer drinkers, and droves of barbecue lovers came together and raised upwards of $5,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at the third annual Bike Brew Q event at the Great Bend Expo Complex on Saturday, July 28.
Cyclists headed out in the morning and routes were available from 20-72 miles and included road and gravel routes. All routes included support and gear (SAG) stops sponsored by local businesses and philanthropy groups giving riders a chance to rest, hydrate and refuel.
The SAG stops were sponsored by Golden Belt Bicycle Co., Barton County Young Professionals, The Errand Lady, Yoga Central, Rhythm Makings, Perks Coffee Shop, Eric and Janet Dowson, and Christine Wondra.
Following the cycling event the Craft Brew Expo took place from 1-4 p.m. featuring 15 breweries from four states. The breweries brought their own personnel and beer to the event. Expo attendees had access to unlimited samples, free giveaways by the breweries and all ticket holders received a free commemorative Bike Brew Q can glass.
The expo included the following breweries represented: Wichita Brewing Company, Lawrence Beer Company, Tallgrass Brewing Company, Three Rings Brewery, Salt City Brewing……
