IA Beer Bus and Craft Beer Tent denied licenses on Day 1

Pottawattamie County has (as of June 27th) denied the licenses for the two Iowa Craft Beer Tent locations along the route. Locations were to be between Minden and Avoca, and outside of Marne. They have denied the Beer Bus as well per their response to Facebook questions.

The reasoning is “Potential safety and sanitation issues”. IA Craft Beer Tent says they have agreed to have port a potties (as always) to solve the sanitation issue but they are unsure how to solve the safety “issue”.

This frustrates me as a rider as these are some of the most fun stops on the route and I may be mistaken but I always thought was a very in control smart group of riders enjoying a drink in a shaded acreage.

It was discussed today during the meeting. A few more steps to complete and it will be discussed one final time next Tuesday with hopefully a good outcome. #DownToTheWire

Good news! Both on the first day were approved. Iowa Craft Beer tent will be right before Avoca and Marne.

Our licenses were approved today for Pott county on Day 1. We still have one little hurdle to jump over, but we hope to have that buttoned up by Thursday. You will find us before Avoca, and between Walnut and Marne.

Thank you for the emails sent to us, and to those that took the time to email the supervisors.

We are happy to report that all licenses have been approved with one hurdle to jump on day 1! We are still looking for a few sworn officers to work our day 1 locations to meet the county requirements. If you know of anyone in the area, please have them give us a call today at 515-875-4838. We need to act fast on this to get all of the forms finalized and approved in time. Thank you.

Our day 1 licenses were just approved 30 minutes ago. All licenses have been approved and we are going for a full pull next week. We look forward to seeing you just before Avoca and after Walnut on Sunday.
