While Dubuque no longer has a big downtown department store decorated inside and out for the holidays with those traditional window displays celebrating the coming of Christmas with a sparkly winter wonderland of toys and other gifts, it does have the Roshek Building, which once served that purpose.

“Members got us open. People coming in just buying beer is what’s going to keep us open,” says Jay Jubeck, co-owner and namesake of Dubuque’s first “nano” brewery, Jubeck New World Brewing. It’s an important point. Because Jubeck and his partner Dan Caraway used a fundraising plan based on the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model to raise funds to start their CSB (Community Supported Brewery), some people might mistakenly think they are not welcome to stop in and try the beer at the brewery’s tasting room. They couldn’t be further from the truth.
