Happy 21st birthday to you, Court Avenue Brewing Company.

To honor the business's 21 years of operation in downtown Des Moines, CABCo will provide free food and drinks to anyone turning 21 in October, a press release issued Monday said.

You will receive a free entrée and a free beer or Moscow mule of your choice, the release said.

“We want to expand our family,” general manager Justin Berkley said in the release. “As an established downtown restaurant, people who’ve been coming downtown for years know who we are. We thought our 21st birthday was a perfect opportunity to reach out to people who are just beginning to explore Des Moines’ growing social scene.

"We want to show them what we’re all about.”
