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.

“Great beer”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

After spending the day exploring Galena, we stopped in for some refreshment. I tried their sampler of all six of their beers (several award winners). All of the varieties were delicious. Having previously read reviews of the food, we decided to eat elsewhere. I would recommend stopping in for beer, however. The space is large and welcoming.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Coming from the West Coast I expected the beers here to be somewhat boring. I was pleasantly surprised at the hop profile in Annabelle's IPA. Service was very warm and welcoming.

“A great stop for the craft beer lover.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We have stopped here many times. Miner's Treasure ale, Annabel's IPA, and Uly's stout are some of our favorites. They do great seasonal brews too. The food is good but not great. Love their loaded nachos and they have great deals on their wings.

“Good Value”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We went here because they had a restaurant.com coupon ($25 off -- look for that). The food was good and my wife enjoyed her beer, the service was also good. We were served quickly and it was a nice introduction to Galena.

My wife had a flatbread and the kids had pizzas, both were average but good. I really enjoyed the chicken wings, they had a 20 for $10 deal and they were very good.

“Tasty brews”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We stopped by at 4:30 and had no wait for a table. Attentive service; great selection of beers including those made there and a nice selection of others. Variety of tastings and flights available. Food and beverages were reasonably priced; sweet potato tots were a nice alternative to the usual fries. Gift shop in the front, of which I am not a fan of, but not intrusive or obnoxious. Life entertainment most nights except of course the night we were there. We were not rushed out and had a nice leisurely early dinner. Definitely worth a visit!
