2024 Wichita Wicked Brew Tour

Posted on June 28, 2024 by under Things to Do.    

The Wicked Brew tour is one of the drink tours that Brian and I most look forward to doing every summer. We usually start at Wichita Brewing Co. but this year we started it at River City Brewery in Old Town.

Stop #1 – River City Brewing Co.

We really like the pizzas at RCB but we also got to try something new this time – pork belly lettuce wraps. They were amazing! In fact, I’m thinking we should go back there soon before it comes off the menu.

Stop #2 – Cocoa Dolce

Instead of having dessert at RCB, we drove down the street to Cocoa Dolce to pick up our second stamps of the tour.

Stop #3 – Mokas Cafe

I managed to talk Brian into driving me to Riverside Tennis Center for the iPickle Nation Nation Builder Series round robin mini tournament on one Sunday morning so we stopped by Mokas on the way and picked up our third stamps.

Stop #4 – Pennant Coffee

My friend Chris Townley and I went one morning. I had to buy two iced vanilla lattes in order to get two stamps because I didn’t want Brian’s book to fall behind.

Stop #5 – The COOP

I once again went with my friend Chris. Neither of us had been to the COOP before so it was neat checking out a new place. I’ll create a separate post about the COOP because I took a bunch of photos. First time there, and all. Anyway, I got an iced vanilla latte and a caffe shakerato – two iced drinks so that I could get two stamps and keep Brian’s book on track.

Stop #6 – The Depot

Brian and I only cook our Hello Fresh dinners during the week so we can eat out on weekends. On this particular night, we decided to hit the Depot (formerly PourHouse ICT) so we could continue to get Wicked Brew tour stamps. He had a warbeard (his favorite beer from Walnut River) and I had a strawberry summer brew (which counts because it does have beer in it).

Stop #7 – Il Primo Espresso Caffe

Brian picked up some breakfast burritos (we love theirs), a plain black coffee for him, and an ice vanilla latte for me. I’m not sure if their remodel is complete at this point but Brian went right when they first reopened their lobby. Everything was still very much under construction.

Stop #8 – Wichita Brewing Co.

WBC is always one of our tour stops. Usually it’s our first stop. We ended up going towards the end of our tour this year.

Not only do they have good pizzas but they also have great daily specials.

Stop #9A – Nortons Brewing Company

We had to visit a couple of places for #9 because Brian didn’t feel like drinking when we went to Nortons. He was on some special meds and didn’t want to mess it up. I was fully intending to take one for the team and drink a couple of beers but their beers are strong and I could not have another after my first one.

Stop #9B – Fairmount Coffee Co.

I decided to grab an iced brown sugar latte from Fairmount Coffee one morning to get Brian’s book caught up with mine. I had never been there before so I took advantage of the opportunity to check out a new coffee spot. The shop is super cute and made me wish it was around when I was attending Wichita State.

Stop #10 – Reverie Coffee Roasters

Reverie was our final stop this year. We went there for breakfast on our way out of town to Nebraska. Looking back (at this year and previous years), I guess I always end up doing most of the drinking whenever we do these tours. Brian enjoys getting the free shirt, though. Actually, it’s something that we both look forward to doing every year. I’ve even gotten my friend Chris doing it with us too. He was on vacation in the UK recently so he just finished his book this past week. Just in the nick of time too. The guy at the Visit Wichita office said they are about a week and a half away from running out of shirts. Until next year! #SaveTheDate
