It’s no secret that eastern Iowa’s beer seen is growing. With four breweries opening in 5 years (and a new one on its way!), this region is coming back to the beer capital it once boasted during the heyday of the Dubuque Brewing and Malting Company.
Travel from the riverside gem, River Ridge Brewing, to the crowdfunded start-up, Jubeck’s New World Brewing, to the newest and largest brewpub, 7 Hills Brewing, and finally to a brewery in a historic Masonic Lodge, Franklin Street Brewing. Each of these unique breweries serve their own handcrafted offerings. Don’t forget your growlers!
