A good selection of brews all made in-house. There were a couple of stouts, some ales, a hefeweizen, and a pilsner. There were six house brews and six seasonals available when we visited. Flights were available for the house brews and the seasonals. We visited...More

We had great service and a tasty lunch of bbq chicken flatbread and baked potato soup. We tested out the house beer flight and white sangria. They were great. We will be back!

My husband and I are craft beer geeks, and I would definitely recommend this brewery if you are in town. The beer was refreshing and true to style.

Had a nice lunch at the Galena Brewery. Had a little problem getting a table at the time promised but we just put that out of our minds and enjoyed a great lunch.

Right on Main St., it's a great place to stop in. They brew in-house, but have a fully stocked bar. The service is great, the bartenders are super nice, and it's in the perfect location.

Stopped in for a quick beer. Even though we were there for only 20 minutes we had a good time. Everyone in the place looked like they were enjoying themselves. Definitely will go back.

Beer was decent enough, but the bartender seemed stressed out and was borderline rude to customers. It wasn't busy at the time either.

Off season visit (weekend before memorial day) and really really quiet. Bar tender was the rotating fill in manager and was awesome! We enjoyed the seasonal and standard flights and didn't have any bad things to say about any of the beer. Note: don't care...More

We are a local grassroots craft brewery using only the best of local ingredients...The only brewery in Galena, and the first to return to this historic brewing town in 80 years. 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.
