Every drop of our beer is brewed, bottled, kegged, and canned at our brewery in downtown Des Moines. Built in what was once a soap & cosmetics factory, Exile has a look and layout that is all its own. We take great pride in the brewery we’ve been building since 2012. Schedule a tour, we love showing it off!
Our North American-made, 4-vessel, 30-bbl brew house is the steam powered engine of Exile Brewing Co. With step-infusion and decoction capabilities and a modern-day, open lauter grant, this beauty is truly an original. The wort produced here goes through a traditional fermentation and lagering process that ensures consistency and quality throughout every beer.
