The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division is located on a 14.5 acre site at 1918 SE Hulsizer Road in Ankeny, Iowa. The facility was built with funds raised via the sale of revenue bonds that were authorized through the enactment of legislation in 1980. When the office-warehouse complex was opened in 1981, it was the first time in more than 30 years that the administrative offices and warehouse complex had been housed under the same roof.
The facility provides workspace for the entire ABD staff, including administration, regulation, licensing, tobacco enforcement, accounting, information technology, communications and liquor distribution employees. The building also features a lobby for customers and licensees who await service and a large boardroom used for staff meetings and Alcoholic Beverages Commission meetings.
The warehouse contains more than 2,300 alcoholic liquor products. Warehouse staff fulfill weekly alcoholic liquor orders for 1,500-plus class "E" licensees and load them onto tractor-trailers. State transportation drivers then deliver the liquor to off-premises retailers all across Iowa.
