Since my blog is dedicated to finding good beer in Eastern Iowa, I thought it would be a good idea to list and talk about some the Iowa made beers. I was pretty surprised after researching this how many places there actually are in Iowa to find some good beer and I hope that list continues to grow.
Ever since Peace Tree (www.peacetreebrewing.com) has arrived in Iowa City I have found myself growing more and more attached to their products. Their Hop Wrangler IPA and their Double IPA are must trys for Hop Heads and I can’t wait to try their Gumbo Stout. I visited their website and noticed they have more beers on tap at their taproom. I really need to make a trip over to this place, I’m afraid once I get there I won’t want to leave.
