My favorite was the honey pilsner, my boyfriend's was the pale ale. It was really cool to learn more about the beer-making process. And they gave us samples of their sour beers as well! Great place, definitely give it a try!!

We enjoyed our visit! The flight of beers were tasty and the pretzel was a good pairing. Also love our take home pint glasses we got! Nice relaxed atmosphere and loved that you could play ping pong!

The lady at the register was very rude because we hadn't make a reservation, we are from 2 hrs away and had no idea, just a spur of the moment thing. They weren't very welcoming or "homey"

From Our Editors

Located just blocks from downtown Des Moines, Madhouse Brewing Company specializes in American craft beer, including barrel-aged and sour ales. The brewery includes a tap room, production facility, and event space. Flagship beers include:

  • Honey Pilsner: A light, crisp and easy to drink 5% ABV lager brewed with honey sourced from Iowa-based bee farm Ebert Honey Company.
  • Hopburst IPA: In a new brewing technique, Brewmasters add the hops into the kettle late in the boil to bring out extra hoppy flavors in this 7.2% ABV creation.
  • Pastime Pale Ale: A “hopped up” version of an American style pale ale, this 5.4% ABV receives several generous additions of Cascade hops.
  • Oak-Aged Imperial Red: The flavors of oak and mocha collide while caramel and chocolate malts create a creamy texture and sweetness in this 8.5% ABV red ale aged on oak staves.
  • Sumatra Coffee Stout: Partner with house roasted Sumatra coffee beans from Des Moines based Zanzibar’s Coffee Adventure, this 6.0 ABV is crafted using five different malted grains for a rich and silky texture, dark color, and flavors of chocolate and roasted barley.
