Avoid this place. The brews were sub-par and the food was dry and overcooked. We could not even get silverware or napkins or water. Covid protocols are ignored, with no masking even by employees. On top of all this, our server was rude and surly.

It was so loud when we had dinner in the Brewing Co. that we could barely hear each other even though we were sitting right next to each other.

We took our 2 kids here for a late dinner on a Friday night. We were able to get seated easily. Our server was very nice. My husband loved being able to try the different beers on tap. We had the giant Bavarian pretzel and...it was excellent. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the atmosphere. A great find!More

Great beers and friendly informative beer tenders. Atmosphere was fun. They also have food but we don’t try anything. We stopped here every day of our vacation.

Stopped in after dinner and sat at the bar. Drinks were good - bartender Mike was friendly and fun. Taylor also very friendly. Enjoyed our time hanging out - surprised that it was as empty as it was.

Stopped in here our first day in Galena. It was mid-week in the afternoon, about 10 guests there & cubs game was on. Their beers went down smooth. Very good! Service was friendly & attentive.

It's a very large place and you can see the brewery tanks. They offer many types of beer. I had a special cocktail which was delicious. We shared mini pretzels and cheese curds. Delish! Wish would've ordered one pound pretzel (HUGE). Looked very good. Server...was efficient, didn't have time to chat, she had lots of tables.More

Cheese curds were AWESOME!!! Turkey club and potato soup was also good! Not to heavy to walk around and shop afterwords! Beer selection was good! A little something for everyone! Also enjoyed that you could picked the number in your flight and not suck to...a certain number. Will definitely return!More

We wanted to tour or visit the location, but it was closed up and no admittance. Other tour guides mentioned it so perhaps they didn't realize it was closed.
