We work with some of Des Moines best brewery affiliates including :

Confluence Brewing: Born out of humble beginnings and a passion for home brewing that was sparked back in 1991. Fast forward to 2012, when co-founder John Martin took the leap from amateur home brewer to professional and soon found himself overwhelmed with demand for his beer during the early days of Iowa’s craft beer movement. Confluence continued to attract interest over the years and now boasts a large team of creative craft beer lovers. Swing by their taproom to sample some of the 30 beers on tap, admire the impressive brewing equipment on display, and hang out with friends and family.

Firetrucker Brewery:

Established in 2014 inside Ankeny’s old, brick fire station, Firetrucker Brewery has been making an impact on the community with their appreciation for the arts in every form—including the art of craft beer! From in house art shows and community art events to the Firetrucker beer in your hand, creativity is all around this Iowa brewery. It’s with the spirit to push the boundaries that Firetrucker brews their beer, and it shows with each sip.

Exile Brewing: Were founded in 2012 by R. J. Tursi, whose commitment to the craft of brewing is shared by each and every member of the Exile community. To them, beer is purpose, it is the ties that bind, it is a labor of love, and they wouldn’t have it any other way! To witness their unparalleled dedication to quality and innovation, visit their brewery in downtown Des Moines. What was once a factory building that produced soap and cosmetics, now brews, bottles, kegs, and cans their delicious beer.

Kinship Brewing: Welcome to the Waukee brewery that brews both beer and kinship! Kinship Brewing Co. has strong ties to the Iowa community and frequently partners with local non-profits to help build and give back to the community. But it doesn’t stop there. The brewery has its very own dog park! Guests can bring their best friends along and let the pups expel some energy in Kinship Lois Park before relocating to the patio to enjoy some beers.

Mistress Brewing: Mistress Brewing Company and Taproom, where it is all about “good beer behaving badly!” The owners, Shawn and Jeff, were so dedicated their brewery and to making their dream come true, that Shawn’s wife joked about the brewery being their mistress! And that’s when the name was born. Mistress offers a massive taproom, over 18,000 sq. ft., that brings the atmosphere of New Orleans’ garden district to Iowa’s capital! With a grand hall, a mezzanine, live entertainment, and 24 tap lines, it would be easy to stay for hours enjoying their beer.

Peace Tree Brewing: With a little bit of vision and dedication, a former Nash Rambler car dealership in Knoxville, Iowa was transformed into the original location of Peace Tree Brewing Company. They held their grand opening in that cool, old, brick building in March 2010, and since then Peace Tree has been following their passion to brew great beer and expanding to include multiple taprooms. Their name, Peace Tree Brewing Company, honors an historic grand sycamore that was located around Red Rock, IA. It was under this tree that Native Americans and fur traders would meet and treaties would be made; and with a nod to that legend, Peace Tree Brewing Company hopes that their beer brings friends and strangers alike together.
