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.

Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

The nachos had canned chicken that wasn't seasoned, cheap low quality chicken strips, Philly meat was mostly fat, service was slow and unenthusiastic but the beer was good

“Just a typical brewery.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The good thing about this place was the beer options for tasting and testing. The food was typical bar food. Didn't enjoy the food very much.

“Go to Blaum Bros Instead!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Beer was okay (except for the IPA, which is truly terrible--asked them to leave it off the sampler but they refused). Service is weak and merch store is overpriced (need a $17 bumper sticker? Me neither) and understaffed.

“Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Great place, friendly bartenders, helpful and easy to ask questions. Nice explanations of the choices and the service. We did not eat there, but the food we saw coming out looked great. We would definitely go back!
