Event Partners

Twisted Vine Brewery is hosting this unique opportunity for dads and their family members. 

Born in the rolling hills of an Iowa winery, Twisted Vine Brewery set out with a simple mission to create shockingly good beer, even if it meant bending a few rules along the way. Join them as they twist some vines, share the best of times and change minds—about what beer can and should be. They are reformed working stiffs on a mission to hand-craft unique, palatable, and unpretentious beers. A little tongue-in-cheek and perhaps too fond of coloring outside the lines, they believe in a community of fun-loving, open-minded imbibing. So grab a beer and spread some cheer, leave your troubles at the door, and raise another pour.

Founded by Brian Sabus, Steve Becker, and Steve Breman, Twisted Vine Brewery has been brewing beer for over five years, steadily expanding into multiple bars throughout Central Iowa in that time. In 2015, Jasen Garrett and Paul Galloway joined as partners. All avid homebrewers with a passion for creating great beer, they look forward to introducing more beer lovers throughout Iowa and the region to Twisted Vine Brewery.
