About The Stand Up Guys

The Stand Up Guys are a circle of friends that have been gathering at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery in West Des Moines, Iowa for about 15 years.  Our trademark is that we always stand and never sit.  We got to know the Rock Bottom staff pretty well over the years, and they dubbed us "The Stand Up Guys".  We were lucky enough to be asked to volunteer and organize a golf tournament managed by the Rock Bottom Foundation.  We're proud to have raised over $130,000 for the Iowa Homeless Youth Centers in Des Moines.  So, if you visit Rock Bottom and see some guys standing around a table or two, stop by and say hello to "The Stand Up Guys".

 The Stand Up Guys were very proud to play the 2011 SUG Golf Classic
 in memory of  Mike Reimers:

February 27, 1961 --- August 9, 2010
The  6th Annual Golf Classic was dedicated to the memory of Mike Reimers, who passed away on August 9, 2010.  He was a fellow "Stand Up Guy" and he lived up to those words.  He volunteered and golfed in each of the first five tournaments and was also very committed to the Iowa Homeless Youth Centers' cause.  He has been, and will continue to be missed.
