    I never thought of Iowa as having a beer culture, but some of these sound really interesting!

    It's growing. There are 5 breweries in the downtown area and 10 more in the metro area. The Iowa Taproom (pictured above) is a restaurant that has 120 taps of Iowa only beer. Nationally acclaimed El Bait Shop has 222 taps (with more on the way) and a large selection of bottles. Pretty much, if it's available in Iowa, Bait Shop has it.

    Biergarten volunteers

    Good day MOA!

    Ok! We are now officially taking volunteers. As always, 4 hour shifts. 2 on Wed {2pm to 10pm}, and 3 on Thurs, Fri, and Sat. when we are open Noon to Midnight!

    Paul Ruffell and I will co-ordinate. He is chairing volunteers again at

    I can be reached at or 508.729.3325.

    So for all of you out there that have favorite shifts as a group or individually, send those cards and letters in ASAP.

    And REMEMBER... if you sign up for Sat 4-8, you won't have to sit through the award ceremony. We take everyone's name and send a rep to the ceremony, as you will then be "present" to win a prize.

    We're getting close!

    As "Mad Dog" said, if you want a coveted shift at the Beer Garden", get your request in early.

    Please email me with your preferred day and shift. We will need a skeleton shift for Wednesday afternoon/evening, as well as the regular, busier shifts on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please let me know if you wish an afternoon or evening time.

    We are looking for folks to cover the Wednesday 2:00 - 6:00 p.m and 6:00 - 10:00 pm. shifts, the Thursday, Friday and Saturday's shifts (noon - 4:00 p.m, 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. & 8:00 - midnight)

    Don't be disappointed; contact me now, with the preferred shifts, email and cell #!

    Before I volunteer is tipping the capital of china or a donation to the local wayward ladies home? ( wayward person more politically correct)
