15. The Royal Mile

City: Des Moines, Iowa
Address: 210 4th St.
Website: royalmilebar.com

You won't see any real competition for The Royal Mile in Des Moines, unless, of course, you go upstairs to the Red Monk. That's right, English style pub downstairs, Belgians and other ethereals upstairs, a patio out back, and a little computer for you to research all the beers and even order with. A true find in Des Moines, sometimes referred to as the city's living room.
