White Rooster

The White Rooster is kind of a generic microbrewery like many others. If I lived in Sparta or Randolph County it would be good to have, but I wouldn't travel out of my way to visit.

Nice local brewery!
Feb 2020
We do our own wine and beer trails so we headed to Sparta, IL to visit White Rooster based on a recommendation. We called ahead of time regarding food (don't serve but welcome to bring your own) so we picked up dinner at The Office Bar & Grill in Red Bud and brought it along (review to follow shortly). I immediately noticed they had a toasty fire going outside with nearby chairs by the smoking area. We looked over the beer menu and made our selections for a flight only to find out 2-3 of the beers were scratched. Darn... We talked to the guy behind the bar and he told us the replacements but couldn't give us any info about the new beers, not even the ABV or IBU's... what?! Another employee was sitting at the bar and was updating their website and menu on a laptop but he too couldn't tell us anything about the beers either! We were logging our beers into the Untappd app when I notice that some of the information on the replacement beers was incomplete. I brought it to their attention and he said they don't give a hoot about Untappd, could care less and don't post their beers for Untappd. There was an eclectic group of guests.. an extended family with grandparents to toddlers running around and watching TV in the "kids" area, a few different groups of single guys and gals, a few single guys who appeared to be regulars sitting at the bar. Everyone was friendly. The building is large but basic and houses the "bar" area with tables on one side and the brewery on the other. In the warmer months, they have large garage doors that open up. The beers were Ok to good, they were out of the ones I really wanted to try.... bummer. It was a nice experience but not sure I would return; they don't seem to be too interested in sharing their knowledge about their beers and for me that's part of the unique experience when visiting a local craft brewery.

Nice Brewery

I stopped at this brewery while making my way south. It’s pretty roomy inside with lots of chairs and tables and even some board games to play if you’re so inclined. Nice selection of beers but unfortunately no food served except some chips. I started with a cider which was tasty and then moved on to a porter which was good as well. The bartender was friendly and helpful about the beers. If you’re in the area stop by and check this place out.

I've had better beers and the crowd was kinda trendy. Nice atmosphere and food across the street. Had a beer while my wife and kids picked up Dairy Queen for lunch across the street.

I've been here several times and love the beer they offer. The Kiros is my favorite. The people that work there are so nice and helpful when choosing a beer.

This is a very small place, they only offer their own craft beers which are delicious! And Ski Soda. No food, but you can bring in your own or order from a few places that deliver in town. Or go eat first, then come over.
