Craft breweries continue to increase across Iowa, and the latest one, located in Le Mars, will have a grand opening Friday with the distinction of being the 100th craft brewery in the state.

Ben Sitzman is co-owner of the “Wise I” (eye) brewery in Le Mars:

OC……100th brewery to open.” :17

Sitzmann’s partner, Matt Lancaster, says the Siouxland area has several other craft brewers, many of whom are friends and collaborators:

OC……..helps everybody.” :15

Sitzman says their brewery’s name is linked to an Iowan who helped draft the 18th Amendment:

OC………..from what we are.” :22

At 7 p.m. on Friday, the Iowa Brewers Guild is organizing a toast in all the craft breweries in Iowa to the mark the milestone of the 100th opening.
