Taste, Quality, and Craftsmanship

Confluence brews the hand-crafted beer that Des Moines, Iowa, can call its own. If you savor beer as both a bold taste adventure in the present and a connection with generations past, Confluence Brewery was founded for you. We’re devoted to creating a confluence of great beer, good friends and wonderful times — and look forward to bringing you together with a pint very soon.

With stunning views of our brewing equipment, the taproom offers a great atmosphere to meet old friends and make new ones.

There’s room for groups large and small with flexible table and booth seating. If you love the great outdoors, you’ll love our dog-friendly deck and beer garden with access to the Gray’s Lake bike trail. Our taproom has a capacity of 155 and our beer garden has room for 350+ with plenty of bicycle parking. We also have a reservable private area adjacent to the taproom that holds up to 100. Fill out a form under the "contact us" page for your next party!

Enjoy some of the 36 beers on tap made right here or take a 4-pack home with you. We also serve soft drinks and sports drinks. Our taproom doesn’t serve food, but you’re invited to bring your own! We even have menus of local restaurants that will deliver to you at the taproom. Plus, there are often on-site food vendors. We host live music every Thursday evening and also every Friday night through the spring and summer.
