Established in 2014, Des Moines Beer Week is an annual event that aims to celebrate the Des Moines area’s growing craft beer scene. Participating businesses host fun & unique events for the community to enjoy, including tap takeovers, special beer releases, education, meeting brewers, bike rides, music, beer dinners, specials and more! The week also includes the Iowa Craft Brew Festival, where around 60 Iowa breweries, along with a host of regional and national craft breweries, gather in Des Moines to offer beer samples to patrons. The craft beer industry is impacting our local economy in a positive way by adding to the city’s culture, encouraging tourism and creating jobs. Let’s celebrate and support the breweries, bars, restaurants, local organizations & businesses that help make the Des Moines metro one of the top cities in the nation!
