What’s so awesome about Iowa Brewing Co.?
Most recently our 2018 World Beer Cup win was super awesome! Tragedy of the Common (our California Common) followed up its 2016 Great American Beer Fest medal with another Silver for Best Amber Lager.
What’s so awesome about The Iowa Taproom?
In addition to having 120 awesome taps of Iowa beer from all over the state, we recently opened the Marquette and Joliet rooms. These rooms allow us to host a number of different private events ranging from corporate luncheons to rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. To find out more about these spaces, you can visit us online here.
What’s so awesome about Exile Brewing Company?
Easy, the people who work here and how much effort everyone puts in to make Exile what it has become and what it will continue to grow to be.
What’s so awesome about Kum & Go?
As a fourth-generation family-owned business, Kum & Go has always focused on delivering more than our customers expect. More convenience, more fresh food options, more friendly service – and more great beers to choose from! We also deliver more by giving 10% of our profits to good causes in our community.
What’s so awesome about August Schell Brewing Company?
It’s easier to say what’s not awesome about our company. For starters, we are America’s 2nd oldest family-owned brewery with the 5th and 6th generations active in the day-to-day processes at the brewery. Our 158 year old brewery is located in the hills on the edge of New Ulm, MN. We specialize in German-style craft beers as a way to keep true to our German heritage.
What’s so awesome about Summit Brewing Company?
What’s not awesome about Summit? 33 years of making quality-driven, approachable craft beers. We’re proud and fortunate to share those beers with the great state of Iowa and its people. Our company might be somewhat large; however, we operate as a tight-knit family. We love people, beer and the environment, in no particular order. Plain and simple “We’re your favorite brewery’s favorite brewery.”
What’s so awesome about Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.?
There was no such thing as craft beer in 1980, so, with just a few thousand dollars and some used dairy equipment, Ken Grossman founded Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. The success of Ken’s award winning ales propelled him from homebrewer to craft brewer. Today, Ken and his family still own 100% of the company — one of the most successful independent craft breweries in America.
What’s so awesome about Backpocket Brewing Company?
For the size of our brewery, we have a pretty small team of brewers. But in this instance, our size is a benefit. Everyone is encouraged to collaborate on new beers, and the team as a whole is eager and excited to experiment with different hops, malts and styles.
