Visited just after lunch on a Sunday. Easy enough to find in a strip mall not too far from I-80 on the West side of town. Setup is a home brew store that also has 4 or so racks of beers and a cooler in back. Entire selection is available as singles, and the prices were good. Selection of Iowa beers is right up front, which was nice. Major downside to this place is that the vast majority of craft beer is sitting warm on the shelves. Service was friendly, and knowledgeable. Decent spot to grab some Iowa beers.

Great beer store! Everything is available in singles, which is terrific, and the selection is extensive. Lots of goodies in here - not too tough to come out of here pretty excited with a mix-and-match 6-pack or two.

This is the best beer store in the area. Service has ranged from friendly and helpful to snarky and opinionated. I really like that you can single out anything. I was a little concerned about light as the beer seems to be out in the open, but it doesnít seem to be much of an issue as it is well shaded. The prices were pretty good. Lots of home brewing items for sale. If I get back into it, I would definitely be doing business here. I am really glad to see a great beer store in the Des Moines area that is locally owned. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Nice beer store! Only beer and home brewing available. They took the time to show me all the Iowa beers they stocked. Prices were good. Not a huge selection, but decent. I believe that everything they stock can be bought as a single. Easy to find. Will stop by again.

Stopped by on a Friday afternoon. Interesting homebrew and bottle shop located in a strip mall. Not much to look at inside or out, but the selection of beer is pretty decent, and the service was friendly. There was a beer tasting going on when I was there, but i didnít have much time, so I didnít take part in it. Less selection than Cyclone Liquors up here in Ames, but they allow singles to be sold, so I will probably just skip Cyclone from now on and buy my beer when Iím down near Des Moines. Fairly easy access to this store off of I-80, and definitely worth a stop.

I still love the fact that they do singles, but their selection was a little weaker last time I stopped by. Also, the guy working the counter acted a little weird--definitely made me feel uncomfortable. Iím considering it to be a fluke visit, and Iíll be back.

Lots of beers but a pretty poor selection, lots of dusty bottles that shouldnt be dusty. Pricing was very fair for singles, service was poor. Looked to have a lot of homebrew supplies.

I like this place pretty well. The gentleman that runs it seems to know his stuff very well in regards to not only the beers he sells but he is also a fantastic homebrew store guy very enthusiastic and helpful. I see more than any place in Des Moines a store here that is remarkably buyer friendly. Every single beer is for sale as a single so you can try anything you like, and I personally appreciate that quite a bit. The store also seems to try harder than any other Des Moines area store to keep the variety of beers around. This was the first place I saw Ommegang beers in Iowa, and they seem to like to keep as many Belgians around as they can, which all be it, may not be that many. But there is always something different here and itís always worth the drive across town.

Stopped quick. Grabbed a couple bottles of good stuff. One friendly worker and one not so friendly. Nice homebrew supplies which I wish I had more time to browse. Moderate selection. Some good stuff though. Individual bottles are nice.

Updated: They have mostly the same stuff as HyVee but they also get some oddball stuff in as well. They have a bunch of the Mikkeller SH Series. Iíve found JP and 3F there before. Prices are pretty similar to HyVee but sometimes a bit more, though you can buy anything in a single which is nice.
