The Hall @ The Foundry – A Fun Way To Connect

The Foundry at Valley Junction, an 1890’s railcar barn, and iron Foundry, reclaimed as a distillery, food + beverage hall, commissary kitchen, and place to connect!
Designed to create a one-of-a-kind experience, the Foundry is comprised of an eclectic mix of vendors and seeks to highlight the strength of the Greater Des Moines’ craft and maker culture. 
We stopped out on their grand opening night to experience the food, unique ordering process, and happy crowd! We were not disappointed! The food was great, beer was plenty, and it was standing room only!
Enjoy! the gallery of pictures we were able to get of the Founder, Nick Kuhn, The Hall, and even a few smiling faces.
