The blog of Wellman's Pub Ingersoll and Wellman's Pub and Rooftop West Des Moines.
Here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines, we're happy to note that we have a whole mess of tasty beers on our menu. They're so great that we've chosen to showcase the Iowa craft beers that we have on tap here whenever we get the itch to do so.
Today, we're profiling one of our mainstays: Peace Tree Brewing's Blonde Fatale, brewed in Knoxville, Iowa. What's not to love about Peace Tree? They started with a passion for beer out of an old abandoned car dealership in Knoxville and have grown to become one of the most respected craft breweries in the Midwest. We proudly pour the Blonde Fatale and often feature many others from Peace Tree. Here's a bit about the Blonde Fatale from Peace Tree's website:
Blonde Fatale: Our Belgian-style Blonde Ale will steal your heart as the unfiltered golden hue seduces your taste buds with surprising smoothness. It’s delicately hopped with Styrian Golding and Celeia for medium aroma with a crisp and refreshing bite. The Belgian yeast adds hints of fruity complexity, but be warned – it’s mysterious charm will draw you in again and again. And, at 8.5% ABV, will catch up with you if you’re not careful. Drink responsibly. Available: Year-round in bottles and draft.
So there you have it. An Iowa brewed beer that you can find on tap here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines. And while we're at it, we thought we'd remind you that every Tuesday we have $1 off any Iowa brewed beer that we have on tap as well as $5, 100% Iowa raised black angus beef burgers. It's a chance to taste many of our other craft brews that we have on tap here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines.
Because we love craft beer around here (duh!), we're going to do the next best thing to drinking beer... We're going to talk about it. So every once in a while, we'll feature a craft beer that you can get here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines. For the moment, we're going to tackle our Iowa brewed beers that we feature here, starting with one of our favorites: Exile Brewing Company from Des Moines.
We love Exile for many reasons. Yes their beer is outstanding, but first and foremost, we love that it's a family owned place, owned by the Tursi family of Latin King Fame. They took some of the best knowledge of beer and the food that they've crafted for decades and took the risk to brew something beautiful. In fact, they've created lots of beautiful things.
One of our favorites is their Bavarian Wheat that they call "Hannah." Here are the tasting notes from their website:
Intense aromas of clove and banana give way to a mouthwatering citrus flavor in this unique brew. German wheat and malt come together in a meticulous decoction mash to make a distinct and refreshing beer. A lifelong friend of Exile, Hannah is outspoken and independent, and the perfect embodiment of our Bavarian Wheat.
We're proud to carry Hannah on tap here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop! If you want to try it, stop in anytime. Mention this blog post and we'll take $1 off your first Exile Hannah pint!
