Whether you enjoy a cold beer at the end of a long day, a glass of wine while watching a movie, or trying a new cocktail when you go out for dinner, there are an endless number of reasons why someone might want to enjoy alcohol. When it comes to enjoying adult beverages, Iowa is ranked 15th in alcohol consumption, per capita, according to Wise Voter.

Other States With Dry Counties

A dry county is a county in the United States where the sale of alcoholic beverages is forbidden by the local municipality. There might be more dry places in America than you'd originally think. According to World Atlas, there are around 500 "dry" municipalities in America, and Alaska has 83 of them.

The state of Florida has 67 counties and 3 of those counties are dry. Mississippi has a total of 82 counties and 36 of them are dry or partially dry. Arkansas, Georgia, and South Dakota all contain counties that prohibit the sale of alcohol.

Dry Counties In Iowa?

In 1934, with the enactment of the Iowa Liquor Control Act, Iowa became one of the first Control states. The state regulates the traffic in alcoholic liquors for the protection of the welfare, health, peace, morals, and safety of the people of the state.
