Discover Ames

Local Brew Crawl

You’ve heard of a bar crawl. Meet the bar crawl’s sophisticated older sibling. A brew crawl. Spend a day trying all of these locally brewed sips, including fresh-brewed tea and coffee, delectable wine, and craft beer, all right here in Ames.

Morning Cup of Joe

Good morning! Start the brew crawl with a delicious, seasonally inspired latte from Café Diem in the heart of downtown Ames. 

Mid-day sips

After hitting some of the local shops in Ames, pull up a stool at Little Woods: Herbs and Teas’ tea bar to try four different kinds of artisanal teas in a tea flight.

Happy Hour pick-me-up

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Just a few minutes outside of Ames, sip on a glass of Honey Moon, a sweet red wine infused with the flavor of Iowa honey at Prairie Moon Winery. A couple enjoying wine at Prairie Moon Winery.

Dinner and a drink 

Pizza and beer – is there a better combo? Stop in to Torrent Brewing for a laid-back dinner filled with locally-brewed craft beer and creative flatbread pizzas. 

Saturday night celebrations

One last stop in your crawl: taste the wines at Iowa’s first self-serve wine bar, Della Viti. Try a few, find your favorite and drink it all night long.
