CN Business of the Week: Old Main

Let Old Main be your stop before or after the next Cyclone victory.

Old Main Brewing Co. and Restaurant, located on 316 Main Street, is the perfect get-away in the heart of old downtown Ames.

"We have great beer, great entertainment, great bartenders and great waitresses and waiters. Just great service all around," said restaurant manager Heather Hydell.

Old Main is known for brewing their own beer but it's not just one kind of beer. "We have mostly ales, we have one loger on tap, and we have usually a seasonal ale that we'll change out every month or two months to give a little variety to it," said Hydell.

Old Main has six different beers (to be exact) with a fresh brewed root beer for the non-alcohol enthusiasts, but the drinks aren't all Old Main has to offer. The downtown restaurant is open daily 11 a.m.-2 a.m., has great appetizer specials during happy hour and a brunch buffet on Saturday and Sunday.

So Cyclone fans come out and enjoy Old Main's great food and awesome beer in an atmosphere that welcomes and accommodates all.
