Beer, beer everywhere and not a drop to drink. Yet.

There are an estimated 73 breweries producing locally-crafted beer across Iowa with more than a dozen more in the planning and building phases for 2017. With craft beer hitting a 12 percent nationwide market share in 2016, according to Fortune, the trend continues to grow in Iowa and beyond. If breweries continue to open in Iowa, the state could finish 2017 nearing the 100-brewery milestone.
