It is a very approachable craft beer for any level of beer drinker.

Yeah, it could easily be my desert island beer.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?

BC: Do you know a story – or have a personal story – that revolves around this beer?
When Peace Tree Brewery started in 2009, we could only brew up to 6.25% ABV. When the law in Iowa changed, this was the first higher ABV beer I brewed. It was Spring and I wanted a pale easy drinking higher alcohol beer for the season. Whenever someone finds out that I work for Peace Tree, they tell me about an experience they had drinking Blonde Fatale. It is our most popular selling beer. 

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
Broiled herb-crusted salmon.
