Farmer John's | Multi-Grain Ale

Available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans!

When most people think of Iowa, they picture flowing fields of grain for miles and miles. Created by a third-generation farm boy, Farmer John’s Multi-Grain Ale is amber waves of grain in a glass. A refreshing, wheat ale, it features a base of two row American barley malt along with a large portion of wheat malt, a small dose of rye malt and un-malted oats, corn and wheat. Lightly hopped with English East Kent Goldings hops chosen for their subtle, earthy qualities and finished with locally grown, Iowa Saaz hops for their sweet, floral essence to create a beer that’s light in body and color, with a velvety texture and an aroma as sweet as a freshly cut field of hay. Farmer John’s captures the endless bounty of Iowa in an easy-drinking, wheat ale.

Des Moines IPA | India Pale Ale

Available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans!

As the capital of Iowa, Des Moines constantly surprises first-time visitors with its mix of expected agrarian heritage and influences and unanticipated cosmopolitan flare. So too, with Des Moines IPA, an American take on a world beer: India Pale Ale (IPA).

Iowa’s steady, well balanced nature is reflected in this IPA with its mix of medium body, lighter color and plenty of malt flavor to balance the massive hop impact. Citrusy and piney hops from the Pacific Northwest offset the robust malt flavor of the two-row barley and medium crystal malts. Des Moines IPA proudly represents the Hawkeye State in the category of American IPA, a favorite of beer connoisseurs all across the country.

Capital Gold | Vienna Style Lager

Available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans!

As you first enter the capital city of Iowa and head towards our brewery, it is impossible not to notice the gleaming 23-karat golden dome of the State Capitol Building. Located in Des Moines, an indelible icon of the state, and the city, it’s no wonder we chose to pay tribute with a beer that shines as brightly as that gleaming dome on the hill. This Vienna-Style lager is a classical style, for a classical influence, originating in the capital city of Austria in the mid-1800s. Full-bodied and malty, yet approachable with a honey-like sweetness and just a hint of toasted malt, it’s a brew that satisfies nearly any palate for any occasion. Pour yourself a pint and we're sure you'll agree it's as good as gold!

Milk Man (Nitro & CO2) | Nitro Milk Stout

Available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans!

This is our salute to the embodiment of reliable home delivery in the mid-20th Century: the milk man. Like the profession it honors, this stout reliably delivers an extremely rich and smooth black brew with notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. We used Irish stout malt, Special B, chocolate malt, roasted barley, and flaked oats. The addition of lactose at the end of the boil adds a pleasant sweetness. Milk Man Milk Stout is a collaboration between guest brewer Mike Gauthier and Confluence Head Brewer, John Martin. Cheers to Mike and all who enjoy a dark, delicious treat.
