Thought the beer enthusiasts of Iowa would appreciate an update with respect to the Breweries in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and Marion Iowa. Third Base in Cedar Rapids is back to producing and selling their own beers (after a short disruption this past summer caused apparently by new ownership and incorrect forms sent to the State of Iowa). Quarter Barrel Brewery in downtown Cedar Rapids is still holding forth mostly unchanged from its original format and its original beers. Iowa Brewing Company continues to improve having now fully adjusted its brewing to its brewing equipment. Lion's Bridge continues doing quite well with its sometimes peculiar beers. Turner Alley is a casualty. Iowa City Brewlab is apparently closing. Backpocket Brewery in Iowa City is expanding with a tasting room in Cedar Rapids (apparently this is now open). Big Grove Brewery is currently expanding to a location in Iowa City. Will maintain its full service restaurant and brewery in Solon. Another Road Brewery has been open for quite a while at its new location in Marion Iowa. Brewing is apparently happening in Cedar Rapids at a location near Daniels Park that does not have a tasting room and is not open to the public. I've missed a few, so I hope others will add info to this thread.
