Nestled downtown in a great historic building, this place screams character. Service is great, they have lots of local taps and they know how to make you feel welcome. The food is good and well priced, the only problem with the place is the very safe and pedestrian beer.

I stopped in about noon on a Friday. Plenty of tables and bars stools available. Very nice looking interior with a small brewing operation tucked into the corner. 8 of their own beers on tap, 2 seasonals. Great service at the bar. 8 tasters was about $17 or so. The food was a little on the pricey side, I didnít eat. Pretty cool place, I would come here again when in town.

Wish the offerings matched the excellence of the ambiance of the great old building this is in. Itís really a pretty sweet spot, well laid out and everything inside. But the beers are mediocre and the food is just not very good.

Located in downtown Des Moines just a few blocks down from the capital building. The brewpub has a restaurant side that bright and cheery and a pub side that has a number of tvís. They had 8 on tap with the hefe being a pleasant surprise. They have a few bottles but theyíre main,you the BMC variety. The service was pleasant which is what Iíve come to expect in Iowa.

Nice brewpub in downtown Des Moines. Decent house beers. Service was friendly and knew their stuff. Did not have any food. The seasonals were well above average. Nice place worth a look.

Not a bad place, but way overpriced. An average bar. The food is good, and they have house brews that are stellar, but everything else is very mediocre.

Pretty nice downtown brewpub. The beers were above average for a local brewpub. I would definitely come back if I was in town.

Knowledgable bar tenders, but they donít pay much attention to you when your glass gets empty. The beer is average to good, but nothing that would make me drive the hour and a half to Des Moines just to get it. IMO this is the second best brew pub option in the Des Moines area, the first being Rock Bottom, and I would rather go to El Bait Shop or Hessen Haus before here. If youíre in the area you may as well stop by for a flight and judge yourself.
