Stopped in on 16 March 2016. Clean and presentable tasting room with a ton of setting. Not a ton right at the bar but they have plenty of tables. Mark , the tap room manager gave us a wonderful tour of the brewery and was very hospitable. They also have a food truck outside for when you need a snack. I enjoyed my visit and if I ever make it back to Des Moines, it will remain on my ďmust stop at ď list.

Spent a quiet hour on a Wednesday night in February. Very businesslike environment - pass through the brewery to get to the pleasant tasting room. Friendly staff. Very good beers at fair prices.

Stopped in right after landing in way to hotel. In industrial strip decent sized brewery with barrels for aging and big tap room. Clean place that was fairly crowded early in Saturday mostly with an older crowd. Tasty enough beers and friendly servers. No complaints.

Visited early evening on a Wednesday. Easy to find in an industrial park not too far from the Des Moines airport. As you enter, the sparkling new brewery is right in front of you. You walk around the brewery to get to the tasting room. The tasting room itself is huge, a bunch of tables and a large bar plus a large patio out back that appeared to be right on a biking trail. Beer selection was 11 of their own beers, 1 guest (Stone) and 1 guest cider. Beers were available in a variety of sizes including shaker pint, taster, 3 and 4 beer flights, pitcher and growler. Food truck was out front when I visited, and they had pretzels at the bar. Seems to be a brewery with big ambitions, fun place, best of luck to them.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Tasting room at the brewery, has bartenders who know their brews. I stopped twice in the same evening, and each time encountered beer lovers who were there to see how Confluence does "it" in order to start their own brewpubs. A hopping, fun, beer-centric place. Top notch!

I didnít make it here on my most recent trip in April, but I sure had fun during my previous trip last summer. Super clean and tasty brews. Taster trays offered. Good food truck offered the night I was there. Plenty of space. Nice staff. Cheers John!

I do like the fact that the brewing facility is the center of this tap room. You literally walk around it to get to the tap room. Large space with tables and a bar. Games are available and food trucks stop by or you can bring food in. The beers I had were very good. My only complaint is that the room is very loud with a huge echo. Very attractive and tasty concrete box.
