  • May is National Bike Month and Peace Tree is commemorating with our kickoff to bike season on Sunday, May 29th!

    Join us for a casual bicycle ride from our taproom in Knoxville to Pella’s new The Cellar Peanut Pub - Pella and back!

    The distance between Peace Tree and The Cellar Peanut Pub is approximately 14 miles in either direction–a great ride to get your wheels turning for the year!

    We plan to depart from the brewery by 11am for Pella. We will take backroads and trails wherever possible, but there will be some stretches on Hwy T-15.

    Once we get to The Cellar Peanut Pub, we will break for about an hour to enjoy some of their fantastic craft beer selection and handmade Bloody Marys!

    Upon return to the brewery, we will have food available and door prizes!

    You will be on your own for purchasing beverages at each stop. We want everyone to have lots of fun, but we also encourage responsible riding.

    We look forward to riding with you!
