Show your brewery’s commitment to brewing excellence by joining the Iowa Brewers Guild. Your membership dollars work toward the IBG’s efforts to elevate Iowa beer quality and culture through education, marketing and legislative endeavors. While working to provide a growing list of member benefits, we work hard to keep dues low. In order to do that, we strongly encourage members to participate in a series of festivals that benefit the IBG: Iowa Craft Brew Festival, Festival of Iowa Beers, BrrrFest, and Great River Firkin Fest.
In addition to networking and promotion opportunities, the Guild puts on (and offers a registration discount for members) an annual daylong conference (i-BEST) to nurture the continuing education of Iowa brewery professionals, offers QA service through Granite City’s lab (cell count, yeast analysis, bacterial examination), and retains a lobbyist to protect Iowa’s craft brewing industry legislatively (while also participating in the Brewers Association's annual Hill Climb in Washington DC). We have recently launched an apprenticeship program, a Beer Trails program, and an annual VIP Tour Day (Tour de Tanks). Recently, we've begun collaborating on shipping for GABF and World Beer Cup entries. We also organize the Iowa Craft Brew Festival and Festival of Iowa Beers and always have something else in the works.
Wanna volunteer? Just ask. We'll take the help!
