The craft beer scene here in Iowa is rapidly growing, with lots of amazing local beer all over the place! It's hard to choose a favorite, but if we're deciding based on Google searches, then a brewery with locations in Iowa City and Solon is the big winner.

The Business Broker Network used data from Google Trends to figure out what the most-searched brewery is in every state, and the top result for Iowa is Big Grove Brewery.


Big Grove Brewery first opened up a spot in Solon, and then recently expanded to Iowa City. Not only do they make their own beer (10 different kinds - click HERE to read more), but they also serve a ton of other great local beers and ciders at both restaurants. I've never been to the one in Solon, but I'm a big fan of the one in Iowa City. The beer is great, the decor is stinkin' awesome, and the food is delicious. And don't even get me started on their patio!

And if you're a big craft beer lover, the HUGE party the Cedar Rapids Beer Summit is coming to the Doubletree by Hilton in downtown CR on Saturday, March 3! There will be over 100 craft beers and ciders at this event! For more information and to get your tickets click HERE.
