I met a friend this summer for a burger at Exile Brewing. Exile Brewing is located in a old warehouse completely restored with the steel trusses and wood beams showing. The tables are refurbished and finished from the remnents of old barn wood.
All beers are brewed in house with seasonal beers released all the time. Their beer is so popular it is found at over 70 different bars and restaurants throughout Iowa making it the largest brewery in the State.
We sat out on the patio and enjoyed a beverage and some grub. The place is huge with indoor and plenty of outdoor seating. They have a very good variety on their menu from appetizers, salads, burgers, pasta, and steaks. On the weekends they are also open for breakfast. Check out the menu.
Below pictured is the Uncle Buck which is a ground chuck hand patty, bacon, slice of pepper jack cheese, caramelized onions, and red peppers on a pretzel bun. Delicious. So meet up with your friends for a beverage, grub, and an awesome time.
