Confluence Brewing is a hot-spot in the Des Moines area. But with over 100 breweries operating in Iowa, there’s plenty of competition.

Co-founded by John Martin in 2011, the brewery has been releasing at least one beer every week for the 2019 calendar year to maintain the attention of customers.  

Some weeks will have more than one new release, totaling 70 unique beers for the year. Confluence Brewing taproom manager Mark David mentioned in a statement to the Register that many of the beers are returning season favorites, but some are new creations. 

“We have even produced a few beers in collaboration with other local breweries, such as Brightside Aleworks and 515 Brewing,” David added, noting that the taproom had been remodeled and a 36 tap draft system has been added. “It allows us to serve the multitude of styles we produce all in one place."
