  • Peace Tree Brewing Co.
    Peace Tree Brewing Company takes its name from the ancient sycamore tree that currently peeks its head through the watery surface of Lake Red Rock. Legend has it before the tree was half submerged in water, it served as a meeting place for negotiations between natives and traders. Above all, the tree stood as a symbol of neighborly conversation, friendship, and agreement—aspects of life that Peace Tree Brewing Company hopes to facilitate with their frosty beers and neighborhood atmosphere. Inside Peace Tree’s taproom, which is open Wednesday through Sunday, visitors can gather for tours of the brewery or sit and enjoy its year-round beers on draft. Sippers can introduce their taste buds to the malty flavor of Red Rambler or prepare themselves for the blend of American and English hops in the Hop Wrangler. Occasionally, guests might find seasonal brews available for taste, such as Cornucopia, an ale brewed with Iowa sweet corn, or the heavy and malty Imperial stout. Since the taproom has taken a vow of hunger, it doesn’t serve food, but it does have a bundle of local takeout menus that visitors can use to order food they can enjoy alongside their drinks and the occasional performance of local live music.

The festival is comprised of four distinct events: Cornball, Cornmeal, Cornucopia, and Cornholio. At Cornball, VIPs enjoy gourmet corn-based dishes and beer pairings before dancing to tunes from a DJ, while at Cornmeal, guests can sample bites of corny dishes from local restaurants and catering companies as live music from The Snacks fills the room. For corn purists, Cornucopia offers live music and corny awards with an all-you-can-eat sweet-corn feast featuring flavor-infused butters, and at Cornholio, 32 teams compete in games of old-fashioned corn hole (bags) and enjoy beer from Exile Brewery.
