Since the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, Iowa is one of 17 states that directly controls the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages. The Alcoholic Beverages Division (Division) enforces state and federal laws and regulations related to the sale and use of alcohol and tobacco products.
The Division generates significant revenue for state and local governments. Funds are generated by the direct sale of alcohol, license fees, civil penalties and excise tax of beer and wine. These revenues are transferred to public treasuries to support city, county and state programs. Funds are used for substance abuse training programs, county and city level programs and to support Iowa beer and wine promotion.
