    Downtown Des Moines has a big Farmers Market each Saturday morning 7-12.
    They were tearing down as I rode through to Court Avenue Brewing Company.

    Not listed on the tour, but it's only a one block walk south of the Iowa Tap Room.

    Peace Tree Brewing Tap Room.

    A garage door opens to a small inside bar.

    Past that area is a large dinning area.

    I'm going to see if Debbie wants to bicycle ride tomorrow and check out the food at Exile.
    Maybe if I don't tell her it's going to be mid 90s again.

    They have good sandwiches.
    The temps were around 100 today
    Very friendly staff. When we walked into the patio area with our bicycles the bar tender handed each of us a glass of ice water before we sat down.

    Not on the Pub crawl, but another place to check out if you're a craft beer lover is El Bait Shop.
    http://elbaitshop.com/
    262 Craft beers on tap.
    The shuttle from the fairgrounds probably has a stop near here.
    It's downtown on Market street a block west of the river, 3 blocks south of Court Ave. and the Saturday Farmers Market.

    There has been some heavy rains at the upper end of the Des Moines River Watershed and I see the river downtown is creeping up.
    Looks like it's up to the Simon Estes Stage. http://www.simonestesamp.com/

    Had to make a little detour on the bicycle trail today.

    Lee:

    Just found this. Wow - some great bars! I'd be headed to Court Avenue.

    Been watching the Tour?

    I've been watching a little here and there.
    Debbie and I did a little ride today and stopped at Exile again for a sandwich.

    Our group on the beer bus wasn't thrilled with Court Avenue. They had a sign out front advertising $3 craft beers for happy hour from 3-6, but charged us over $5 each if we weren't using our 'free' ticket. When we questioned it, the server wouldn't respond and the manager refused to talk to us. Not happy.
