The journey begins at El Bait Shop/High Life Lounge at Noon and continues to The Levee on Court, The Royal Mile, and will finish at Hessen Haus.  Each stop will have small plates and appetizers along with beer samples.  Along the route, participants can socialize and take part in a guided walking tour of downtown Des Moines.  A brand new route for 2014 will showcase the recent and current improvements in the downtown area including the Principal Riverwalk, Flagship Building (formerly Younkers), World Food Prize and Cowles Commons (formerly Nollen Plaza) projects.
