We really enjoyed our day there. The fall leaves were falling. The sun was shining and to top things off, we made a stop at the Root Beer Revelry. I ordered a Root Beer float. Amazing!!!! 😋 I highly recommend this place.

They have a large selection of root beers and also have some great old time favorites, all in glass bottles. I haven't had a green river or grape Nehi in years and was excited to find them here.

I had a great experience shopping here and the friendliest service I experienced in Galena. I can't wait to try all of the sodas he helped pick out! And the one on tap was awesome!
