A good Hy-Vee location, more hands off than the last one I went to in DSM.
They had a growler station up front, but nothing I couldn't live without.
Friendly enough checkout clerk, and the stocklady working in the beer cave cooler was helpful.
Selection had a good local contingent, Confluence, Peace Tree, West O, Kalona, TG and a few other IA breweries. A heavy presence of Bruery and Odell in the bomber section. A handful of imports like Chimay, not much else. Nice to see cases of Born Yesterday stacked up by the front desk.

Overall it was a solid experience, and the closest beer store near Barn Town in West DSM.

This place is much bigger than it looks from the street because it's deep. The build a six-pack section has about 200 choices, very nice. The overall selection includes higher quality brands: rogue, sierra nevada, sam adams, flying dog, bell's, along with lots of good British and Belgian picks to choose from. Plenty of bombers, plenty of macros for the regular folk, plenty for everybody. I was fortunate enough to score some Hopslam on my last trip. The crowd there can be a little on the scary side but the workers know their stuff.
