The National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library invites visitors to party like they’re in Prague at the 11th annual BrewNost! event this Friday, Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m.

The museum, which is located in Cedar Rapids’ Czech Village, seeks to connect its visitors to Czech and Slovak history and culture; during BrewNost! they will do this by pouring over 50 Czech, international and local beers for guests.

Preston Moore, NCSML’s director of marketing and communications, says that the event is about having fun and celebrating the museum and its communities. They have partnered with John’s Grocery for the event and beers will include the Czech beer Pilsner Urquell, as well as beers from Cedar Rapids’ Lion Bridge Brewing and the soon-to-open Quarter Barrel Brewing.

In addition to beer, samples of the Czech herbal liqueur Becherovka, various wines, non-alcoholic drinks and food from area restaurants will also be available.

Wisconsin band Copper Box will play polka-rock and Czech- and Slovak-inspired music for guests.

At 9 p.m., the silent auction — which includes beer, wine and other gifts — will close. During BrewNost! there will also be raffle drawing for prizes, including a 7-night stay at the Hotel Rott in Prague.

BrewNost! runs from from 6:30-10 p.m. at National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library (1400 Inspiration Pl. SW, Cedar Rapids). Tickets can be purchased online for $60 or at the event for $70. Silent auction items can be bid on prior to the event online.
