Iowa Wine and Beer Launches App

April 21, 2011 (Des Moines, IA) – Finding Iowa wineries and breweries just got easier with the launch of the free Iowa Wine and Beer App available for Apple products.

 

An enhanced version of the popular print directory, the app includes listings for all 100 wineries and breweries, maps, amenities and photos. The map feature allows users to see which location is closest to them and get directions.

 

“The wine and beer industry continues to expand in Iowa. We’ve added seven wineries and another brewery over last year’s version of the directory,” said Colleen Murphy of the Iowa Wine and Beer Promotion Board. “There are at least half a dozen more ready to open in the next year. This new app is a great way to get the information in the hands of consumers as they are travelingIowa.”

 

The app is available for free from the Apple App Store. The traditional Iowa Wine and Beer Directory is available at any Iowa Welcome Center, at any of the included wineries or breweries or for order online at www.iowawineandbeer.com.

 

An events calendar and detailed listings for each winery and brewery can be found on www.iowawineandbeer.com. Iowa Wine and Beer is also on Twitter (www.twitter.com/IowaWineandBeer) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/IAWineandBeer).

 

The directory is produced by the Iowa Wine and Beer Promotion Board, an organization created in 1986 to promote the state’s wine and beer making industries. Find more at www.iowawineandbeer.com.
