There is good beer in America and great beer from Iowa!
While in Iowa, we went for a visit to the Peace Tree Brewery in Knoxville.
We'd heard of them from tasting their Rye Porter that is distributed widely around Iowa. The other beers are harder to find but turned out to be just as delicious!
A beautiful tasting room:
Templeton Rye whisky barrels (another great Iowa product.)
brrrfest, a festival of local and small breweries from around the region in Coralville on January 28th. If you're in the Iowa area, be sure to go!
