Potosi Brewing Co. (Potosi, WI) - Good Old Potosi, Gandy Dancer Porter
Big Sky Brewing Co. (Missoula, MT) - Moose Drool IPA

Although all of these beers sound pretty good, there is one that I've tried and absolutely LOVE. Peace Tree's Blonde Fatale is probably my favorite beer ever. Peace Tree is a newer brewery, started in 2009 in Knoxville, IA, but the story behind their name is what makes them especially interesting. The Peace Tree is a grand sycamore that was once estimated to be the second largest in the world. It's located underneath Lake Red Rock near the town of Red Rock, IA. It was supposedly a popular meeting place for Native Americans for generations, where fur traders met and Indian treaties were negotiated. In the 60s, the Red Rock Dam was built to create a reservoir for the Des Moines River, and the 500-year-old Peace Tree was still left standing. The company says, "Our name, Peace Tree Brewing Company, serves as a reminder of our past – where different cultures met to discuss, trade and come to agreements." [Peace Tree Brewing]
