My favorites of the ones I've been. Nothing to do with the quality of their beer. In no order

Big Grove Iowa City
Singlespeed Waterloo
Toppling Goliath
Dimensional
Kinship
Lion Bridge
Marto Brewing
Confluence
Firetrucker/Reclaimed Rails -Can't pick my favorite, they are equal to me in coolness.

I haven't been to Textile, Okoboji, yet to rank it

Alluvial is cool on the outside but the inside is disappointing

What am I missing?

I'm a dubuque resident and have to say while Dimensional wins the beer battle the best taproom in town has to be 7 hills

Waterloo
SingleSpeed in Waterloo is just an incredibly cool building. Old Wonder Bread bakery that they converted into a restaurant and brewery. Reused everything they could right down to oven and refrigerator doors as stall doors in the bathroom plus a floor to ceiling Lego room for kids. State of the art environmentally friendly as well.

Textile in Dyersville is incredibly neat as well.

I was about ready to slam 7 hills but it was Jubeck that had very disappointing beer. I'll have to check out 7 hills.
