Baby it’s cold outside, but now you can warm up with a cold beer and some cool basketball, courtesy of the Iowa Wolves Hoops & Hops Series. This year, they’ve really upped the ante by partnering with your favorite beer app (and naturally, ours), Brew Moines. Craft beer and courtside tickets? It sounds like a slam dunk to us.

For three more games this season, you can imbibe in what we feel safe in calling the best deal in town.

Each Hoops & Hops Pass is $40 and includes:

  • One (1) Iowa Wolves ticket in the courtside Brew Moines zone, right under the basket. 
  • One (1) commemorative pint glass. It makes the beer taste better, trust us. 
  • Four (4) pints of beer
  • Popcorn and chicken tenders/meatballs
  • Opportunity to meet the brewers, win prizes, and sample exclusive beers
  • Each event runs from 5:45 p.m. until halftime of the Wolves game.
