Description: 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.

I never liked beer before, but the bitterness ratings on their chalkboard helped me pick one I loved. The selection, expertise of the bartender, and fun atmosphere made this a great place to spend a Friday night. There was live music and folks were dancing--a jovial atmosphere for sure.

All I can say is this was a Colossal evening!! The brewing company had a band (They were like the Blues Brothers) We spent our New Years Eve at the Galena Brewing Company. We returned here based on our experience in March. Our son accompanied us this time and we wanted him to try some of our favorite entree’s and appetizers. We have had the 2 pound pretzel, the wings and Italian beef sandwich. On the previous visit I enjoyed the soup. Our son echo’ed our reviews about the wings, we didn’t get to have the pretzel on this visit. In March we attended the brewery tour that we found to be very informative and enjoyable. It wasn’t available on this visit however that is understandable on a holiday weekend. I would recommend this as a must see if you are at all interested on how a brewing company does business and love good food and great music.

The beers are fine as are the bartenders themselves but the wait staff undermines both of the positives. Were there earlier in the evening of new years, and wait staff was unusually focused on customer volume, moving existing paying patrons out in favor of others, who appeared to be local regulars. We had been there about 15 minutes drinking two sampler flights when it was made abundantly clear they wanted our table. Never encountered that before. Won't return. If interested in touring local drinks, the wineries and Blaum Brothers are much better values. Good folks who don't make you feel like you wasted your money with them.

Good crowd on a thursday night in december. The flights are six 4 oz beers either seasonal or tap. The seasonals are good. I like the brat and loved the potato salad. My friend loved her macaroni. The cheese in the stuffed breadsticks was excellent. We had a great time here and we will back.

this is the place to go in Galena if you want to have a great craft beer. It's halfway down on main street and also the ambience is pretty cool.
