    Coming Soon...Iowan Craft Beer Hall downtown DM

    Nice! Since just about everything these guys touch turns to gold, look for this to be a winner in the near future. Cool idea...

    Iowan Craft Beer Hall downtown
    Published on August 4th, 2014 | by Joe Lawler

    Full Court Press is known for its great beer bars with international themes like The Royal Mile (British) and Hessen Haus (German). For its next project, the group is aiming a little closer to home.

    The Iowan Craft Beer Hall will feature more than 75 Iowa beers on tap and serve predominately Iowa food products. Iowa now has more than 50 breweries producing beer, which should provide plenty of beers to choose from.
    But one thing Full Court Press is still looking for is a location. The group is currently seeking developers to find the right location downtown...

    Not a fan of the name, but it'll be a cool showcase for Iowa breweries.

    Re: Coming Soon...Iowan Craft Beer Hall downtown DM

    It's a struggle for me with Toppling Goliath. I want their beer more often, but I don't want them to grow too fast and start making ****** beer either. I guess I'm happy with how their production levels/quality is currently.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Coming Soon...Iowan Craft Beer Hall downtown DM

    So I wonder it this means they will dedicate Bait Shop solely to out of state craft beers or if there will be a overlap?


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    I agree, think they should go with, "Great Iowa Beer Hall", or just "Iowa Beer Hall". Or "Iowa Hall of Beer and Bacon" because people are stupid about bacon.

    I don't know what this Adventureland place is, but are they frequently out of beers because the breweries can't keep up with distribution?

    No way they get rid of all of them. Probably will scale it back a bit, but they've got to at least have TG & Confluence.

    Why even bother scaling back?

    If it sells, it sells. Can't imagine Bait Shop telling a customer "oh you have to go down the street if you want an Iowa beer"....

    I don't want them to make crap beers but my god it would be nice to be able to go into a store in central Iowa and buy one of their beers. Right now you have to follow a bunch of people on twitter and then drive straight to one of the 5 or so stores in Des Moines that actually carry it for 2 hours a week.

    If it was up to me they would move production to 90% PsuedoSue. The good news is that El Bait Shop almost always has it on tap.
