We’ve almost reached the starting line. For more than two years we’ve worked towards this moment. With help from family and friends, and scores of support from all of you, our dream is finally becoming a reality.
Final preparations are underway. Months of construction are almost complete as crews check off the last remaining details. Tanks have arrived. Booth and bar counters are being installed. Floors have been sealed. Beer dinners are coming quick and filling up fast. John, our Head Brewer, has returned from Scotland and will be arriving in less than a week to experiment and craft ales and lagers. Training for servers and bartenders begins Monday, while Tim and the culinary team have scrubbed and polished every inch of the kitchen in anticipation of food deliveries.
We’ve navigated our way through long hours, late nights, some stress, and tons of laughs to reach the starting line at Exile Brewing Co. We’re excited to share this project with Des Moines and looking forward to the stories that will be created with full stomachs and tankards of beer in hand!
