The food, beer and atmosphere were not only unique but very good. The nachos were like no other that I have ever had and the beer cheese is to die for. I will definitely return.

We enjoy beer flights and appetizers. Portions are large and the beer was great. Definitely a great place to stop and taste their creations and enjoy some food. Great service too

We keep going back to this very fun and busy brewery. Still a favorite place to stop when in Galena. Great beers and great service. Menu is good and has nothing grilled or fried. The baked chicken wings are really good.

We have six regular house brands on tap, and five to six seasonal and guest taps, regular & seasonal brews, best baked wings in Galena, salads and sandwiches menu & desserts. Kids menu too! We have taken strides to ensure that our table and bar service is excellent, and we are happy to report that our customer feedback now consistently reflects that quality. Brewery tours Friday at 5pm and Saturday at 11:30am. Beer tasting flights and full bar. Live music and dancing most weekends on a Friday and Saturday at 8pm. Football games on 82 inch and 55 inch screens with really cool surround sound. When the game is on...You are THERE man! We also have a 35 seat party room for hire.
