the topeka railroad roots run deep

Look no further than Cyrus K. Holliday

The man who founded our Capital City. Holliday helped start the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad in 1868. This powerful rail line ignited Topeka's growth, helped establish the Topeka based Harvey Houses - the first franchised fine dining and hotel accommodations in the country, and put our city on the map as an important transportation hub.

Iron Rail Brewing pays homage to this rich railroad tapestry that runs through the very veins of Topeka. Our presence helps tell the story of a strong city, coming back to life, revitalized and ready to serve its citizens in Topeka's historic downtown. Join us as we honor the noted legacy of Topeka's past, and look forward to a vibrant 21st Century Topeka!
