The Cellar Peanut Pub Is Iowa’s Best Small Town Bar And It Has A Stool For You

Iowa has a lot of incredible small-town bars, but there’s a pub in Pella that stands windmill blades above the rest. The Cellar Peanut Pub is a place with a friendly pub experience that can’t be beat in this Dutch-inspired town. The bar has a lively, welcoming atmosphere, one of the best bloody marys on earth and it takes its beer, very, very seriously.

Reviewers have taken notice and the pub has won a trophy case full of accolades – it has been named the best pub in Iowa, the best Craft Beer Bar in Iowa, and the pub’s bloody mary won top honors at The New York Wine & Food Festival, a contest judged by The Food Network’s cast of Chopped.

All that’s left is for you to judge this place for yourself.
