The birthplace of my love for craft beer. Gorgeous bar top with fermenters set behind. Seen it go through multiple changes, but still feels like home. This is a great dive with friemdly atmosphere, good bar food, and a solid selection of original brews. Highlights include the dry hopped ale, oatmeal stout, and sweet potato ale. The patio space is nice and they have fun music events. Definitely worth a stop and sample

I loved the atmosphere at Bent River. It is a pretty small place but very comfortable.Easy place to sit, talk and have a good brew. Beer Selection didn't blow me away but the dry-hopped had a really good flavor to it. I would definitely go back if I am ever in that neck of the woods again.

I stopped and did a sampler here... I thought the Dry Hopped beer really stood out. The imperial stout was also good, but not great. They had a reasonable amount of selection, although not special. The staff was helpful, the patrons very personable, and the place also did have an accommodating feel to it. I did not try any food and am unsure if they have any. If you're in the area it would be worth at least a stop, especially after a long drive through Iowa or some of the boring areas of Illinois.

Walking in you'll find the brewing equipment right behind the bar that stretches the length of the establishment. The look of the place was a bit disconjointed but the music playing in the background set an easy locale.

The beer was good. They had a great variety so those who wanted a dark brew order a stout or porter. Those looking for a paler brew could choose from a blonde or pale ale. The also pushed some limits by offering a jalapano beer, and a beer they claim is a brewed with sweet potatoes. Of course a dry-hopped pale ale was available for my taste.

The service was friendly enough to make my group and I feel welcome and the bartender was great at making sure our food and beverage needs were well met.

I had a simple burger, as did most of my fellow patrons. The meal was worth the price and I didn't feel like I was hungry or stuffed as I left.

If you are in the Quad-Cities and have the chance, this is the brewpub to try. Especially if you're looking for a good variety of beers made with care and effort.
