Iowa’s First Farm Brewery Is Unexpectedly Awesome

Iowa has no shortage of great craft breweries, but most of them are located in the big city. However, on the outskirts of Ames, you’ll find a very different kind of brewery – one located in the heartland and packed with all the flavors of the local harvest. Iowa’s first farm brewery, Alluvial Brewing Company, is located on an organic family-owned farm, but it’s delivering big flavors in a small batch. Containing a tasting room, an outdoor patio, a live music stage, and an on-site brewery, it’s quickly becoming one of the state’s best-regarded craft breweries – and the people behind it have a unique way of bringing the whole community in on the brewing process.
