This is a cute little place to try beer flights and a quick bite. Our waitress was bubbly and friendly, our buffalo chicken salads were good. We would return.

We stopped in here last summer to try out their beers. They looked so good, we ended up getting 2 flights so we could try each one. Delicious! Our only regret was we had already eaten so we couldn't try the food. We're heading back...More

We did not try their brews, as we had spent the afternoon doing wine tasting, but the beer cheese soup was great, and the wing special offered Sunday through Tuesday is a great deal. Char broiled wings were flavorful.

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.
