I love beer.
I like Iowa.
I prefer winter.

If I find myself in Iowa this winter, I will find some of these beers.

Council Bluffs is the only city in Iowa I've spent much time in. Not a bad place but a bit run down. The times I was there (mid 90's) it looked like nobody had fixed anything for the past 25 years.

They ARE notable for having a large black squirrel population so when I googled breweries there I was happy to see at least someone opened a bar named The BLK Squirrel.

Corn sugar is excellent for priming (carbonating) or increasing the alcohol content of beer without radically altering the taste.

I spent a bit of time in Iowa, especially Iowa City, when my college buddy was in the Writers' Workshop.  It a nice vibe then and some good food.

There is no amount of beer that will dull the experience of driving through Iowa regardless of the season.
