Just because Des Moines Beer Week isn’t happening in its truest form until June 2021 doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of ways to celebrate and support our local breweries for what would have been Beer Week 2020. Take the #DSMlocalchallenge and knock out some of your Brew Moines check-ins at the same time! Here is what is on tap for the Greater Des Moines brewery scene.
