Confluence Brewing Company, located at 1235 Thomas Beck Road (Suite A) in Des Moines, will host their winter Bock party, ChewBOCKa, on Saturday, February 6. The event will be held at the brewery’s tap room from noon to 8 p.m. ChewBOCKa will feature food, live music, prize drawings, and of course, Confluence brews. Tickets for the event are $12, and they may be purchased at the tap room or online through Tikly. The ticket price includes a commemorative gold-rimmed 2016 ChewBOCKa Fest mug, a half-liter of ChewBOCKa or any other Confluence beer, and (for advanced tickets only) entry into a drawing for Star Wars Party Pack that includes 10 tickets to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the Science Center of Iowa’s IMAX theatre, as well as two large popcorns.
This year’s ChewBOCKa will feature two live musical acts and food from one of Des Moines’ top food trucks. Gastro Grub will be offering a selection of yummy offerings for purchase all day. Meanwhile, Jager and the Polkameisters will provide background music from noon to 4 p.m., and Courtney Krause and Luke Fox will take the stage from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you aren’t the big Star Wars Party Pack winner, don’t despair, Confluence will be drawing every hour for a winner of two tickets to see the new Star Wars movie. May the force, and the beer, be with you!
