AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Drinks): With about 100 different kinds of beer available on tap, I believe this is the best place in Iowa for beer lovers!
If you like beer then you need to add this to your list of places to visit in Des Moines. Simply put, they have an entire wall with about two rows of 50 (yeah, that's right, almost 100 in total) brews on tap. There are beers from all over the world and the staff is knowledgeable in helping you decide which one to try next. As if you needed any further convincing, I should also mention the food here is great, too. Start with either the bacon-wrapped little smokies, or the bacon-wrapped tater tots. I mean, the only thing better than bacon-wrapped tots or smokies are, of course, bacon-wrapped tots or smokies dipped in ranch dressing. Also, you definitely have to try the fish tacos as they are a local hit.
