The next time you are in Moline, make plans to eat and drink at the Bent River Brewery. Great food! I ordered the Boathouse Platter with Beef Brisket and Pastrami. Next time, I am skipping the Brisket and loading up on the Pastrami. Delicious! Enjoy!

We stopped in for a taste of a local craft brew. Found the staff and patrons to be very amenable. Had some Shepards Pie with our brew. Food, beer and staff were great!
