Two Marion County businesses were recognized as award winners during the Cityview awards banquet this past week. Peace Tree Brewing Company was named the winner of the Best Locally Brewed Beer award. They were also named as a runner-up for best beer. Brewmaster Joe Kesteloot says he wasn’t expecting the award, and it’s great to be recognized by the general public. Smokey Row Coffee was named Best Local Coffeehouse and was a runner-up for Best Coffee. The Cityview awards are voted on by the readers of the central Iowa publication, which reaches more than 70,000 people weekly. More than 10,000 people voted this year in the awards.
