Meticulously Handcrafted Beer With Your Taste-buds In Mind

Reclaimed Rails Brewing Company (RRBC) is a local microbrewery offering 16 handcrafted brews and root beer. Located just a 1/2 block from the Chichaqua Valley Bike Trail and nestled in downtown Bondurant.

RRBC opened its doors for two main reasons: the first being the immense passion the four of us owners share for quality hand crafted beer and the second being the desire to share this passion with our surrounding communities, state and country. "We all know that craft beer is on the rise. The public has spoken and asked for more flavorful beers, something that always has them grasping for more. RRBC exists to give you just that."


Our variety of beers are bound to please any palate out there. We run the gamut here from a light crisp pilsner to an imperial stout and everything in between. With 16 tap handles, your taste buds will never get bored. Check our current beer lineup here! Want some to go? You bet! We can accommodate with our growlers that we'll seal right in front of you and have 32 ounce growlers that you can bring back for discounted refill prices.


Watch our event calendar and our Facebook posts for Food Truck schedules. We don't have a full kitchen, but we serve Pesquale's 12" thin crust pizza at our taproom for just $9 or $10 per pizza! You can also bring in food from home, carryout from a local restaurant, or have something delivered! We have a few menu's for local options in the taproom.

The story behind the RRBC name starts with their head brewer and Co-Owner, Dave Coy (DCoy). Dave has “reclaimed” his art of craft brewing in the Des Moines metro area. Dave was the former head brewer at Raccoon River Brewing Company. Rounding out the RRBC Team are JC, Jeremy, and Chandler.

The last part of this story comes from the “reclaimed” railway a block away from the new brewery. This railway, along with many others throughout the state, have been transformed into bike trails, which have quickly become popular and part of Iowa’s pride. Biking and all of our surrounding community’s trails are a huge part of our focus and support.

Imagined and located mere minutes from Des Moines, Reclaimed Rails Brewing Company found its home in Bondurant. RRBC is a tremendous addition to the growing town of Bondurant which is only 3 miles from Altoona. RRBC brews beer styles for everyone, from the farmer, to the banker, and everyone else. We are an integral part of the Bondurant/Altoona and greater Des Moines area beer scene. Local and regional restaurants are serving our beer and we are working with other breweries and retailers. Our clients are the community. Regardless of age, sex, race, or wealth, our craft beers unite those for the love of craft beer, camaradarie, and community.

Our brewery and taproom is housed in the former legion hall that was built in 1948. This two story brick has rich community history and we have strived to continue that heritage. This truly is a brewery like no other in the state! The entire 2500 sq ft lower level is dedicated to the brewing process from start to finish. The 2500 sq ft upstairs is where the beer enters the glass, in the taproom. There is seating for over 100 people and a historic stage and movie perch that is a must see. Before RRBC moved in, the space was The space was given some TLC from our friends, the Baileys and was destined to be “Reclaim on Main”, which would sell reclaimed decor. Not to worry though, you can still purchase these hand crafted items that are displayed throughout the brewery.


Our cellar houses (4) 15 BBL fermenters as well as (2) 7 BBL fermentors. Our cooler has (8) 15 BBL serving tanks that feed straight up thru the floor to the bar above. We also have room for a number of kegs for our pilot brewing system for those off the wall funky beers!
