    This story on WHOTV13 mentions near the end that they are opening a 2nd location in the East Village.

    My guess is they are the brewery rumored to be going into the building that is to be rehabbed on E Court Avenue that I mentioned in the Iowa Tap Room thread.

    WHO story : http://whotv.com/2016/03/21/peace-tree-brewing-company-growing-in-popularity/

    Proposed Taproom by Christenson Development: http://www.christensendevelopment.com/assets/317-e.-court-handout.pdf

    (not really crazy about the flat surface parking lot, but it is already there and they are reducing it in size and adding some green-space to soften it up a bit.)

    Would it be a 2nd brewery, or just taproom? seems interesting to open just a taproom when the Iowa Taproom is serving a solid chunk of your line up down the road

    That sketch looks a lot like the Flat Tire Lounge.

    Peace Tree - they put 'In Heaven there is no Beer' on their labels.

    Pass.

    I don't like the Belgian yeast beers as much, nor do I care for the blatant Hawkeye-ization, but No Coast IPA is a seriously good beer.

    I'm a big fan of Blonde Fatale. I haven't really liked the others I've tried (the red is the one I specifically remember)

    No Coast is on point. I always grab a growler of it when it is on tap at the Pub Osky.

    Re: Peach Tree Brewery adding DM location

    I haven't had any awful beers from them, but nothing I'd need to buy again. I think Blonde Fatale is the best beer I've had from them, and when that type of beer is what you're best at, you need to reevaluate things. :twitcy:

    Hopefully they'll up the ante if they come to DSM in whatever capacity. :yes:

    Re: Peach Tree Brewery adding DM location

    Agreed but they are just working with what they have here. Here is current look of the building:

    https://www.google.com/maps/@41.5870375,-93.6118358,3a,75y,215.35h,98.69t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLGKjGzmfsf8Qil9jU2L8-w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1

    As you can see, the building appears to have a false front on it hiding the true shape of it. Per the rendering, they'll be removing that squared-off front half.

    Royale 41 is the only one I've really liked. My wife loves Blond Fatale.

    That's literally a block away from the Iowa Taproom, right?

    Well....it is 1/2 block from Iowa Tap Room to E Court Ave. You do have to travel west on E Court and the rumored Peach Tree location is pretty much the corner of E Court Ave and 4th. So, probably closer to 1 1/2 blocks.

    I don't know if their beer is good or not, but Des Moines could probably support a few more breweries. People love to drink in the afternoon, but they hate going to bars in the afternoon.
