Big Grove Brewery has been looking to expand and one of the locations of that expansion is Cedar Rapids. Big Grove currently has locations in Iowa City, Solon, and Des Moines, with construction officially underway in Iowa's second-most populated city. Big Grove made the big announcement of construction underway on their Facebook page.

The brewery will be located on the 100 block of 2nd Ave Sw and they are planning to open by the fall.

LET'S GO! If you're a fan of craft beer and a fun atmosphere, it's tough to go wrong stopping in any of the amazing breweries in Iowa. The more breweries the merrier if you ask me. This will have to be added to my list of places to visit when it opens and my buddies come to Iowa for the weekend.

While you can sip and sample Big Grove beers from their other locations and just about anywhere in Iowa, as they do sell their beers out of liquor stores, I've always found trying a beer straight from the tap to be a little more special.

It might not necessarily taste any different but being able to enjoy a craft beer in the building it was created, adds something to the experience. There's something about drinking a beer on its home turf that I enjoy.

Fall is one of my favorite craft beer seasons of the year. It looks like the Big Grove location in Cedar Rapids will be open just in time for us to try their "Red-Headed Stranger." Fingers crossed! They recently released their 2023 Beer Release Calendar on Instagram and hopefully they are open just in time for us to enjoy all of the rest of their fall and winter releases in the Cedar Rapids location.

It's an exciting time for craft beer fans and Big Grove fans as I can't wait to check out this new location. It's also been a lot of fun to scroll through the comments on their construction announcement to see where fans want them to expand next. Where do you think Big Grove ends up next if they continue to expand throughout Iowa?
