Welcome, friends!

If you’re looking for delicious craft brews made in small batches, you’re in the right place. Rooted in Knoxville, Iowa, we’re one of Iowa’s oldest independent craft breweries (est. 2009). Here, you can try everything from gold medal to groovy beers. We also have a taproom in the Historic East Village in Des Moines.

Gold Medal Winning Beers

We put a lot of care into each beer we create. It’s why we’ve won gold medals at two of the world’s largest and most prestigious beer competitions. Blonde Fatale earned gold at the World Beer Cup® and Get a Little Hazy won gold at the Great American Beer Festival®. These beers continue to turn heads (or is that taste buds) along with our ever-evolving line up of year-round, Brewer’s Special Release, Sour Wood Series, and Limited Releases.

Peace Tree Brewing Root Beer

Hand-Crafted Root Beer

Our premium craft root beer has an old-fashioned flavor that will transport you back to the carefree moments of your childhood. Non-alcoholic and caffeine-free, it’s handcrafted in small batches. The delicious flavor comes from the delicate balance of real sugar, vanilla, sarsaparilla, and caramel. It’s a refreshing treat for kids (and kids at heart).

Templeton Red Can And Glass

Templeton Red

There was a time when alcohol was forbidden in America, creating a void filled only by the times’ most daring entrepreneurs. For this unique beer, we’ve proudly joined forces with Templeton Rye Spirits in Templeton, Iowa and their famous prohibition-era whiskey. Aged 12 months in Temple Rye casks, this red ale hints of whiskey, vanilla and oak. Drink inconspicuously or share with friends.

Something Hoppening Here Can And Glass

Something Hoppening Here

As craft beer evolves, so does Peace Tree! We’re proud to unveil the new IPA Our Way Series with this one-of-a-kind brew. In our quest to create a distinctive India Pale Ale, we used a unique blend of Cascade, Citra and Nectaron hops, and Cosmic Punch yeast to bring out the fruitiest of esters and a citrus haze. There’s Something Hoppening Here!

Prickly Pear Beer Can And Glass

Prickly Pear Sour Ale

We’ve taken our Sour Wood Series to the next level with Prickly Pear Sour Ale! Hints of melon and earthy undertones unfold with every sip. Brimming with fruits of the prickly pear cactus, this subtly tart brew brings its desert sweetness to you!
