We do not serve food in our establishment because we want to focus on making great beer. Also, we want to encourage our patrons to support local restaurants. We welcome you to bring in your favorite fare or make a call to your go-to place that delivers. If you are just looking for something to munch on with your beer, we do offer a variety of snacks for sale including local Iowa cheeses, popcorn and beef sticks.


We are excited to offer live music in our new taproom on a regular basis. Look for anything from an eclectic mix of Americana, blues, jazz, rock and old country.


Peace Tree is always down for a good time. Whether it’s live music, special happy hours, food trucks or partnering with local organizations, there is always something fun going on. Check our calendar for the next event or make sure you are on our email list for updates!
