Waterloo Favorite Is Opening In Des Moines SOON
It's going to be sooner rather than later that people in Des Moines will be able to have a little taste of what Waterloo has to offer.
Earlier this year, news came out that Waterloo/Cedar Falls eatery & brewery SingleSpeed would be expanding to Des Moines.
The Waterloo based brewery will be opening a new location in the Des Moines' Market District neighborhood. It's going to be on the east bank of the Des Moines River.
The taproom will be located in a former tire shop at 303 Scott Avenue. This new building will have an outdoor patio that will be right against a neighboring bike trail.
SingleSpeed in Des Moines also will have a similar full food system and menu to its Waterloo location. According to reports, it will also have a five-barrel brewery system just for local, Des Moines beers.
The SingleSpeed team posted a video on Instagram last month with a caption that reads,
"Won't be long now, Des Moines."
I reached out to members of the SingleSpeed Brewing team for information on just when this new location will be opening for business. While they couldn't confirm an official grand opening date, they did confirm that it will open for business this summer.
"Our official opening date isn't set in stone quite yet, but we will be opening next month (July) for certain," officials confirmed in a private message via social media.
This is still a developing story, and we will make sure to provide more information when it is made available to us.
The brewery and adjoining tap room is located at 325 Commercial Street in Waterloo in the old Wonder Bread factory building is always a hotspot for locals, bikers, and fans of locally brewed beers.
Initially, SingleSpeed set up shop in Cedar Falls with a 1700 SF facility, powered by a 3 BBL BrewHouse. In 2016, SingleSpeed moved their brewery to the Waterloo location, and now the taphouse located at 128 Main Street also serves as their Research and Development center.
