Been here many times. Located in a beautiful old brick building in downtown Des Moines a few blocks from the river. They typically have 8-ish of their own beers on tap including a cask version of one of them and at least one seasonal. As of Spring 2008 they are smoke free! Kudos for that. They offer a sampler of all their beers. The food is respectable. Service tends to be good even when crowded. One of the better brewpubs in Iowa.

Des Moines seems to be a ghost town on Sunday nights, but this is open, & worth a visit. I was between seasonal beers, but was satisfied with the brown & the stout, both workmanlike if not outstanding. Hight point was dessert of bread pudding -- not only the best Iíve ever had, but a mountain of a serving. Service was good, but why do Iowans always say "No problem" instead of "Youíre welcome?" I plan to stop back on my regular jaunts into the city.

This place is a nice place serving great food and decent beer. The bar is comfortable and the service is good. Nothing too exciting going on with their beer. Itís good, but not the greatest. Try their Honest Lawyer IPA, their Brown Ale or perhaps their seasonal.

May 2005: Excellent beer and food highlighted this brick-festooned brewpub in downtown. Good service, too.

Ok beer with decent food. Friendly staff on my several trips. Smoky bar with a clean appearance. The best part about this place is that they have two beer engines. A typical brewpub selection. I will visit again on my next trip to Des Moines.
