      With 222 beers on tap, this uniquely named bar and restaurant in downtown Des Moines claims to have the World's Largest Selection of American Craft Beers. While the sheer number of beers is impressive, that selection typically includes numerous top rated and hard to find beers from the best small breweries throughout the country. Flights are available for those who want to sample a number of the offerings.

      If you go:
      The owners of El Bait Shop also run The Iowa Taproom, another restaurant just a few blocks away that also has more than 100 beers on tap, focusing exclusively on beers made in Iowa.
