Governor Kim Reynolds has directed the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division to remove any Russian-produced alcoholic liquor products from its wholesale purchase list

Waterloo, IA – According to the statement, Governor Kim Reynolds reportedly said the new measures further demonstrate the state’s solidarity with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their freedom.

State officials have announced that Iowa is one of 17 states that can control the sales of liquor at the wholesale level.

Under Iowa law, ABD has the authority to determine the brands of alcoholic liquor products available for sale to retailers.

Alcoholic liquor is sold by ABD to off-premises retailers who then sell the products directly to consumers or to on-premises retailers, such as bars and restaurants.
