Breweries in Iowa produce a wide range of beers in different styles that are marketed locally and regionally. Brewing companies vary widely in the volume and variety of beer produced, from small nanobreweries to microbreweries to massive multinational conglomerate macrobreweries. Iowa is a state located in the Midwestern United States, an area often referred to as the "American Heartland".

In 2012 Iowa's 38 breweries and brewpubs employed 140 people directly, and more than 12,000 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[1][2] Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Iowa's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Iowa's breweries and related industries was more than $230 million.[3] Consumer purchases of Iowa's brewery products generated more than $100 million additional tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Iowa ranked 15th in the number of craft breweries per capita with 33.[5]

For context, at the end of 2013 there were 2,822 breweries in the United States, including 2,768 craft breweries subdivided into 1,237 brewpubs, 1,412 microbreweries and 119 regional craft breweries.[6] In that same year, according to the Beer Institute, the brewing industry employed around 43,000 Americans in brewing and distribution and had a combined economic impact of more than $246 billion.[7]
