Welcome back Race Fans! We at Peace Tree and the rest of Knoxville are excited to have you back in town for another fabulous Nationals Week. We will be open each day and night starting Thursday, August 2- Sunday August 12. Stop by and see all that has changed since last year. We have the fan favorite Kolsch style beer, light and refreshing but full of flavor, just what you need to refresh after long nights of racing action. We have a number of other styles available and have added some barrel aged beers for those willing to explore. And excellent Root Beer for those who want a non-alcoholic option!
If you haven’t visited us before, we’d love to see you. We offer a cool (looking and feeling!) taproom that is a great place to catch up with friends old and new. Order in some food or just snack on pub mix, PopCorn, or some great local cheeses from our cooler. And if you want to learn more about beer magic, ask for a tour!
Of course the main action is out by the race track and we will be in the Hy-Vee Beer Tent. Also be sure to check out our downtown! We have some great little gems plus you will really experience the hometown hospitality that’s made Knoxville famous. Below is a list of some of our favorite spots…Be sure to tell them we sent you!
