A trip with a colleague to a Power Station in the wilds of North Dakota, meant a nights stay in a town called Bismarck. Prior to my trip I had searched the BA BeerFly Database, with little luck. After a day spent crawling around in darkness and hot temperatures I was ready for a few beers but feared a night of Macros. After a quick Shower and a change of clothing we hit the town and had a ride around.
Bismarck is small, but my Beer-Senses tingled as we passed the Peacock Alley Bar & Grill so we headed inside. Located on East Main Avenue, it is on the corner with 5th Street. A typical exterior, once inside, the Peacock is basically one large room. You are drawn to the Bar area which is situated right in the centre. Dark woods, brass fittings and tall stools make for an attractive Bar, so my colleague decided we should sit at the bar, rather than the other Tables and Chairs located throughout and around the Bar.
Beer Range was, thankfully, quite good and a very nice surprise. 17 Taps serve a range of beer to suit most. The variety was good and suited most palates. There are about 7 Taps for Domestic Macro, another 8 for Microbrews and the rest for Imports. My colleague went straight for his favorite Imported Killians; whilst I opted for the Redhook Blonde, followed by the SunRye, neither of which I had tried before. A nice feature of the bar is that whilst the Macros are permanent, the Micros are not and they change weekly.
Serves Food, but having eaten earlier we just imbibed whilst here. The food range and quality looked good, especially the Cajun Prime Rib.
We tried a few other places in town, but the Peacock Alley Bar & Grill has the best beer range that we could find in the places that we visited. Sure, it's not the biggest range ever - but for the area this is the best you will find, and the changing Micro's means that you will no doubt find something to tickle your palate. So if you ever get to Bismarck (and I am sure you would not be passing through!) but if you do find yourself here, this is probably the best draft beer range in town, with a small but decent range of Micros.
Last Visit: Saturday 14th June 2003.
