DownPour Draft in Ankeny Square:

Ankeny Square, the small park on the southside of the Park Blocks off of W. Burnside, is getting a newly renovated food cart pod this summer! Since Ankeny Square is in Bailey’s backyard, the city asked if we’d like to participate in keeping the food cart patrons beered. Of course!

Bailey’s Taproom presents DownPour Draft, a 4-tap beer cart and garden pouring solely beer & cider from our fine city.  The cart will be operating during regular pod hours. The food cart pod will be open 11am-7pm ThursdaySunday for a run through the end of August.
