Iowa Beer Laws

News Flash:

Governor Culver will sign the state government reorganization bill, SF 2088, into law, 11:30 a.m on Wednesday March 10.

While this is not the original bill, SF 2091, that was designed specifically to change Iowa’s beer rules, the reorganization bill does include an amendment that raises the limit of alcohol in beer from 5% to 12%. The old limit meant any stronger beer was actually classified as a hard liquor and was distributed through the state. Great breweries such as Founder’s simply haven’t wanted to deal with Iowa at all–this should open the gates up to these breweries. It also levels the playing field for Iowa brewers and allows them to brew more varieties of beers.

A little economic and cultural common sense here.

A pint for all my friends!
