Beer & Cheese Pairing Mini-class
with Brewer Barb & Cheesemonger Darren
October 5, 6:30 p.m.
Get your tickets.
We love working with our friends at The Cheese Shop of Des Moines to create perfect pairings of 515 beer and delicious cheese. You'll be able to get these specially paired flights on both Friday and Saturday while supplies last.
Want a more in-depth experience on the beer and cheese flights?
Our brewer Barb and cheesemonger Darren (from The Cheese Shop) will guide you through each beer and cheese and tell you why they pair well together. This ticketed event guarantees you a beer & cheese flight, reserved seat and freedom to quiz both Barb and Darren on their knowledge.
Don't miss this culinary experience. And, if the mood strikes to sip your beer with a pinky raised, we won't judge. Cheers!

Restaurant/Bar/Brewing Industry Night
Every Monday, 3 – 9 p.m.
Do you work in a restaurant, bar or brewery? We want to thank you for all that you do...because we've been there, done that and still doing it. Just prove to us you work in the industry and we'll give you 1/2 off beer every Monday.
4:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Each Thursday we'll be featuring one of our beers infused with new flavors (check our Facebook event page for this week's inbrewsion). We're using a device called the Randall. It allows beer to flow through a chamber filled with things such as spices, hops, etc. It will add a new twist to beers we already have on tap and may inspire brand new brews. Join us for some tasty experimentation. (We are still working out the kinks on the Randall. Pours may take longer. Please be patient with our beertenders. Thanks!)
