Then they realized there was more money in selling crap beer to young kids packed into a loud cellar.

I grew up in Dubuque and my family still lives there and I used to enjoy going to bricktown when I visited. Not any more.

BTW, the best brewery in Iowa was Stone City brewery in Solon, Iowa. They closed a few years ago, which was sad because their Artist Colony Ale was one of my all time favorite beers.

I'm from Dubuque also and still have family there. My friends are mostly in their early forties and laugh about the place. They are losing out on alot of business from these guys and gals.
