Get Down to Crafts & Draughts in Ames' Campustown

Where can you enjoy fall weather, sample food and craft beer, AND make a craft to take home all while listening to live music? Crafts & Draughts in Campustown on Saturday, October 15 will feature taste samples from Campustown restaurants, local craft brews, live music and crafts for all ages. From 1-6 p.m., Lot Y in the heart of Campustown is the place to be for this free, fun, fall afternoon!

Alluvial Brewing Company, Boone Valley Brewing Co., Confluence Brewing Company, and Firetrucker Brewery will all have brews being served from a craft beer truck.

Need some food to go with your beer? Never fear, Campustown food vendors will include Arcadia Café, Battlecry BBQ, Hungry Boys, Jeff’s Pizza, Fighting Burrito, Pizza Pit, Salt & Pretzel Co, Smiles & Gyros, Super Dog and Macubana.

While guests will need to be 21+ to enter the beer tasting area, there will be several crafts available outside this area available to all ages.

Whether you are an avid Pinterest DIY-er or need some crafty inspiration, there will be an activity perfect for you. Create your own coaster or dog toy, paint a bottle opener to hang on your wall, or take pictures with chalk drawings

One of the best ways to bring people together, aside from food, beer and crafts, is with live music. From the Crafts & Draughts stage you will hear Hawk McIntyre from 1-3 p.m. and Damon Dotson from 3-6 p.m. See you Saturday!
