Seems like a slap in the face to put Kinship in the same league as Alluvial and Big Grove. Can you point me to the beer you've had at Kinship that warrants the Tier B level?

Why are we counting Big Grove in the Des Moines rankings here in July 2021? When their Sherman Hill location opens next year, sure.

Because they are coming. BTW, it's 2021.
Sheesh - dumb mistake by me

I still hold belief that putting BG in Des Moines ranking is premature. Will they be elite? Sure, but they’re not apart of the Des Moines landscape yet. Just my opinion though.

Yeah, you may be correct. I'm basing my ratings on the beer I've had from them in the last couple of years as well as the beer I've had in both of their locations. They may totally drop the ball but I highly doubt it. Lua seem to do pretty good right off the bat.
