Fun Date Ideas in Springfield, Mo
I mean, why not? Sure, not every brewery in Springfield hosts a tour, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have some pretty cool happenings they host!
Provides tours and has a tasting room – a very popular brewery in downtown Springfield, Mo., they throw some pretty wicked backyard bashes.
Join the “Mug Club” – only for serious beer lovers! While they do have brewery tours and beer pairing dinners, joining the mug club is a prestigious occasion and only happens at the end of each year with only a few spots open.
They have a tap room and the event space so you can throw your own soirees, but what is super cool is their happy hour all day Sunday (ends at 6pm) and their double punch Thursdays!
While they have some awesome events in the line-up, they also have some pretty awesome beer. Did I mention they bring in bands so you can have dinner, a pint and a show??
The Trolley Bike is great for those who wanna date like adults with their friends. Find a babysitter, grab your sweetie and another 6 to 12 friends and book a date!
While country music and all things cowboy isn’t necessarily my style, I will be checking out their awesome line dancing classes every Thursday and Friday at 8pm. Can you line dance in heals? Anyone?
