    Raccoon does have a nice little patio. Right between the main bar and the Hotel Fort Des Moines.

    Yes the both have them. Both are pretty small.

    Re: Raccoon River Brewing Company or Court Avenue Brew?

    Both have patio's. CAB is probably is bit smaller (maybe only 8 tables or so?). I would guess Raccoon has 10 or 12 tables.

    That's what I'd do. Then head over to Cooneys when it gets chilly.

    Not to derail the thread but is it me or does Beaverdale have some of the best places to drink in Des Moines? AK's, B&B, Goodsons, Conney's, and Kelley's all within a few blocks of each other. What a great neighborhood!

    Royal Mile has a solid patio+beer=success.

    Not sure if you can bring the red monk food down there but if you can, I think their food is better than raccoon. Try the scotch egg.

    I like em all except goodsons. It smells sweaty to me. Not sure if it leaks thru the roof or not, maybe its just me.

    It could be, do you come straight from working out upstairs without showering?

    Part of the reason I like them is due to the patio's. Cooney's doesn't have one but the rest are all good sized.

    B&B and AK's have pretty good menu's as well. I have never seen a menu at Kelly's.
