If you're thinking that Iowa's craft beer scene — or the national one — is just a hipster fad, or that the industry is floating on an increasingly fragile bubble or that the market just can't sustain any more craft breweries, it looks like you'd better think again. At least that's what most Iowa beer experts say: Craft beer is here to stay and that there's plenty of space in the market to fill.

Des Moines Beer Week, June 14 through 20, will celebrate that. All week, participating businesses throughout the city plan and host beer-based events like bike rides, tap takeovers, special tappings, movies and educational opportunities. The week leads up to the Iowa Craft Beer Festival on June 20, downtown on the Court Avenue bridge.
