Welcome to Big Grove Brewery in Des Moines. This location just opened up in 2022 but Big Grove got its start in Iowa City and also has a spot in Solon.

So what makes Big Grove Brewery so unique? Here's what Only in Your State Iowa had to say on the subject:

The restaurant is known for its sprawling outdoor patio seating, its huge beer selection, and its massive portions of Iowa comfort food and innovative specials. However, the restaurant’s new branch in Des Moines has taken “big” to a whole new level – in fact, it’s the largest restaurant in Iowa! With a total seating capacity of 850 people between its huge dining room and its massive outdoor seating, it’s got enough space to pack in just about everyone who wants a taste of the brewery’s signature suds, along with whatever’s on the seasonal menu today.

Big Grove Brewery is located on 17th Street in Des Moines and is open 7 days a week at 11 am. See its website for full details.
