We enjoy Galena for the the history, shopping and restaurants. Our grandsons always look forward to us buying a case of assorted root beer and sarsaparilla when we visit Galena. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about all of the different bottling companies

Love this place - you can get root beer, ginger beer, sarsaparilla, cream soda, etc. from a lot of different bottlers. They have it in bottles and on tap, and will make you a rootbeer float if you want! Cute, nice service, fun.

Root Beer Revelry does not make their own root beer but rotate the one on tap from various locations. Love the growler that I can add to my collection!

Set in Galena's historic Main St, this is exactly like a traditional lounge bar but it's ONLY Root Beer. Every kind in the World plus you can get an authentic Black Cow! Belly up to the Bar & enjoy😃
