It’s no secret that eastern Iowa’s beer seen is growing. With five breweries opening in 6 years, 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 Dimensional Brewing Company, then our largest brewpub, 7 Hills Brewing, to our newest brewery, Textile Brewing Company, 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!
