Bars: The Cellar Peanut Pub, Iowa’s best-kept secret

We did say that a little in our article about bars for every US State. The Cellar Peanut Pub is Iowa’s best-kept secret bar.

Marty Duffy transformed since 2002 The Cellar Peanut Pub into the most famous bar in Pella, Iowa. In fact, today it offers 50 varieties of tap beer and is served by renowned pubtenders who specialize in serving beer. They attest to the Cicerone Certification. This is a certification program that educates beer professionals – amazing!

Not only does this make the Cellar Peanut Pub unique, the bar is involved in forestry. You can save a tree thanks to the bar’s digital menu.

At The Cellear Peanut Pub you can attend special events like jazz concerts, blues, trivia night on Tuesdays, and special beer classes like the Beer School by Iowa Brewing Company.
