Confluence Brewing Company
Located right here in Des Moines is Confluence Brewing Company. Back in 1991, Confluence’s head brewer, John Martin, found a passion for brewing beer using Iowa’s bountiful crops. After years of brewing beer at home, John met fellow home brewer and co-founder, Ken Broadhead. The two came together to launch Confluence Brewing Company in 2012, and the result is the amazing beer we have on tap for you here at the Boot: Farmer John’s Multi-Grain Ale, Des Moines IPA, and Bench Weiss.
The people behind this local brewery in Ankeny live, breathe, and eat local. Only local Iowa ingredients are used to make their beers. A sense of innovation, a sense of community, and the desire to improve life is at the forefront during the creation of each of their beers. You can expect to get lots of flavor while still maintaining a clean finish. On tap, we have their Pumper Truck Porter and Uptown IPA.
This brewery can be found in Boone. Their journey started as a fun notion to make beer from a kit, but soon turned into a passion for making delicious beer. After winning multiple awards it became obvious that these recipes needed their own brewery. Brewer Rick is often referred to as the “Willie Wonka of Beers” and the “Phantom Brewer” around these parts, somewhat of a legend. The Boot is proud to offer their tasty Roxie Irish Red on tap.
Peace Tree Brewing Company
Peace Tree Brewing Company has called Knoxville home since 2010. The name comes from the historic grand sycamore that grew near the town of Red Rock, which was a meeting place for many generations of Native Americans, and later a meeting place for fur traders too. The tree is this company’s symbol because they strive to make beers that will be “shared with friends and strangers alike and act as a catalyst for conversations, new friendships, and important agreements – in line with the lore of the Peace Tree of Red Rock.” We currently carry their wonderful Mile Long Lager and Blonde Fatale.
Big Grove Brewery
According to Big Grove Brewery in Johnson County, thirsty happens, so does hungry, and so does the need to hang out with friends and have some fun. The beers they brew embody this combination, seeking to encourage the spirit of adventure, exploration, and community. This company loves giving back to the local community. When it comes to beer, they have given the Boot their incredible Arms Race Pale Ale on top to share with our thirsty customers.
When it comes to quenching your thirst, our Des Moines BBQ restaurant & bar has much more than just beer waiting for you, but the beer we do have is the best-tasting beer you could possibly choose from. Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Iowa makes amazing BBQ on a daily basis, and these fantastic Iowa breweries make amazing beer. What a great state to eat and drink in!
