The Foundry - A Media Peek

The media was invited to an event at The Foundry a very unique (for the Des Moines Metro) mixed-use redevelopment project that will transform a 25,000 square foot 19th Century railroad maintenance building into three distinct sections. The Hall - A food and beverage restaurant and beer venue. The Distillery - A commercial production facility and The Kitchen - A non-profit commissary kitchen with a social mission to fight hunger, homelessness and provide skills training. Here we visit with Jorgen Jensen of the Foundry Project about the history behind the building and what they uncovered during the multi-million dollar renovation and then some information from Scott Bush the man behind the Foundery Distilling Company. This is...very...cool with a "hat tip" to Invision the architects of the project.
