Firetrucker is our drinking establishment of choice in Ankeny. Beers are great, atmosphere is pretty relaxed (although it gets very busy at times). It's nice when there's a food truck there. The only think I don't love is when there is music, because it's just...More

Really great time sampling beer. I couldn't make a decision about which I liked best and I wanted to take a growler home. I'm not normally a big IPA fan, but I really liked their selection. Bartender and brewer were super friendly.

About half the beers were ones I liked, other half were okay. Pretty typical for me at a tasting room. Staff was friendly and helped me choose beers that I would like, the small samples really helped. Recommend a stop for any beer lover. Plus...More

Firetrucker does a great job of introducing new flavors while keeping the customer favorites on tap. The ownership and staff are awesome and treat you like family. They also do a great job of bringing in other business for food, sponsors, and community involvement. Pay...More
