PIVO Brewery/Blepta Studios named ‘Small Business of the Week’

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Ranking Member of the Senate Small Business Committee, announced her Small Business of the Week: PIVO Brewery and Blepta Studios of Winneshiek County. Throughout this Congress, Ernst plans to recognize a small business in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties.

“From Craig’s time serving our country in the Air Force to his partnership with his wife Sara to create a one-of-a-kind small business in Calmar, the Neuzils have gone above and beyond to give back to their community,” said Ernst. 

With hard work, creativity and innovation, husband and wife team Craig and Sara Neuzil turned their hobbies into a unique small business in Calmar. PIVO Brewery and Blepta Studios is an equal-parts beer brewery, art studio and event center that prides itself on providing high-quality beers, ciders, food and art to the Winneshiek County community. 

The Neuzils founded their business in 2017 when they returned to Iowa following Craig’s 21 years of service in the Air Force. They are actively-involved in the Calmar community and have been recognized for their contributions to the craft beer industry.
