The Blonde Fatale beer was awarded the bronze medal in the Belgian Strong Pale Ale division of the North American Beer Awards. The awards are put on by the North American Brewers’ Association. Over 1200 beers are judged in the competition. Brewmaster Joe Kesteloot says that it’s exciting to be recognized and that it helps expand the Peace Tree name outside of Iowa and into the rest of the country. This was the first brewing medal that Peace Tree has received.
