    On Ingersoll or in Beaverdale would be cool. Right off a bike trail would be even cooler.

    Downtown has worked well for them, they pretty much own the market.

    Which is why downtown makes even more sense. Convergence of all kinds of trails.

    East Village wouldn't be a bad locale either. Particularly along that new stretch of MLK just east of the river.

    They can, but why would you?

    If this is going to be the premier showcase for Iowa Craft beers in the metro (or probably the state), you put it where the action is. You're not catering to mom and dad and the two kids, so suburbia doesn't make sense. Also as mentioned, you are at the convergence of the bike trail system if you locate downtown.

    Full Court Press has stated in other articles, they are downtown type guys and I think they have even gone so far as to say they would never do anything in the suburbs. Not their thing.


    Keep doing what you're doing to build Strong Towns.

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

    This idea will make money.

    Wonder if they will do it like a German Style Beer Hall?

    I think they should break the taps up by region. Like North, East, South, West. Rep your hood sorta thing.


    Smoke um if you got um

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

    Talking about bike trails and bars, there is a huge need for a bicycle bar on the Neil Smith trail somewhere between the Inter-Urban trail and Ankeny, probably around Euclid. Not THIS bar, but someone needs to jump on that!

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

    Downtown makes sense due to it's central location. If you put it in a suburb, you alienate the farther out suburbs.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    They should have some old BMX bikes and a couple ramps at that bar that you can jump out in to the river off of. Seems like other places make use of their rivers for recreation and fun, what does Des Moines do?

    Flood insurance would probably make that somewhat prohibitive...

    Two low-head dams on the river downtown make it unfriendly to those that enjoy living and breathing.
