The concept of a beer week started with the city of Philadelphia and has expanded to many cities and states across the country. It's a week that celebrates the culture and community of craft beer. The craft beer industry is impacting local economies in a positive way by adding to the culture, encouraging tourism and creating jobs. Participating businesses — including breweries, bars, restaurants, distributors, local organizations and more — have the opportunity to connect with craft beer drinkers through a variety of events and activities.
At this time, the Des Moines Beer Week area includes the city of Des Moines, Iowa, as well as the following surrounding metro communities: Ankeny, Altoona, Clive, Johnston, Urbandale, Waukee, West Des Moines, Adel, Bondurant, Carlisle, Cumming, Dallas Center, Granger, Grimes, Norwalk, Pleasant Hill, Polk City, Van Meter and Windsor Heights.
