June was a busy month for our Iowa Green Brewery Certification program! They welcomed four new breweries to the ranks of the Iowa Green Brewery Certification: Second State Brewing (Cedar Falls), Pivo Brewery (Calmar) Big Grove Brewery & Taproom (Iowa City), and Court Avenue Restaurant and Brewing Co.(Des Moines).
Court Avenue Restaurant and Brewing Co. (CABCo) has become the first Des Moines area brewery to join the Iowa Green Brewery Certification program.
On Saturday, June 16th, we were excited to attend and be a sponsor at the Iowa Craft Brew Festival in Des Moines. Despite the high temperatures, the festival was well attended and featured over 70 craft breweries and cideries each pouring two or more brews.
The IWRC, in partnership with the Brewers Association, the national organization for craft brewers, is offering a new internship opportunity for a University of Northern Iowa student.
We are excited to share the great news and congratulate 7 Hills Brewery, out of Dubuque, IA, as they received the Iowa Green Brewery Certification.
