$10 for Two Tickets to Brews & Muse 2012 ($20 Value)
On Saturday, September 22, Peace Tree Brewing Co. hosts its annual Brews & Muse event right outside their brewery, beckoning passersby to drink, eat, and dance their way to merriment. Each admission includes a commemorative pint glass ready to be topped off with Peace Tree's regular and special-release brews on tap, which will be available for purchase. To soak up the suds, festival-goers fill up with tacos and barbecue from Tacopacolypse and Captn's Cookin' Q. Later in the evening, live performances by Rumble Seat Riot and Jefferson County Green Band invoke the spirit of dance with rockabilly and roots rock tunes, and wired kids can find solace and apple-juice speakeasies in a bounce house.
Peace Tree Brewing Company
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.
