There’s nothing like grooving to the sounds of live music, relaxing in the sun with friends and sipping on a cool, local beverage. One of my favorite things about summer in Des Moines is hitting up Jasper Winery for their Summer Concert Series.
The Summer Concert Series is held at Jasper Winery every Thursday in the summer from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. It’s the best place to indulge in palette-pleasing wines, fruity sangria (ohhh, so delicious) and Madhouse Brewing Company beer.
You don’t need to eat beforehand because Jasper will have the grill fired up where you can enjoy a sizzling brat or freshly-flipped hamburger. You might even catch a special appearance by the Gusto Pizza truck… And you can’t forget the creamy gelato from Chocolaterie Stam.
Bring your own chairs, blankets, friends, food and non-alcoholic beverages, but leave the alcoholic beverages up to Jasper (they’re good at that sorta thing).
