Breweries

Cedar Rapids’ brewery scene offers a wide array of beer. From pilsners to IPAs the new beers keep flowing!

Across the river, you’ll find Iowa Brewing Company, nestled between the NewBo neighborhood and downtown. They produce a number of beers in house — including Iowa Eagle, a crisp light lager and Bohemian Rapids, a Czech pilsner. iowabrewing.beer

Housed within Black Sheep Social Club, you’ll find Clock House Brewing featuring the popular Witch Slap, a New England IPA and Hell to Pay, a light German lager. Grab appetizers from Black Sheep for a great evening out. clockhousebrewing.com 

A few blocks away is Quarter Barrel Arcade & Brewery. They serve great beers, with about a dozen of their own brews on the menu, but they also cook up spectacular pizza and other inventive menu options. Stay for the classic arcade games. thequarterbarrel.com
