Galena Brewing Company is All about Rich Brewing Traditions
Little known fact about our town – Galena, Illinois was actually one of the first mineral rush cities. It was the largest riverboat port north of St. Louis and also home to nine different breweries in the 1800s. Then, the prohibition happened and Galena’s breweries all closed. Galena Brewing Company strives to honor the rich tradition that has been lost in our town. They even have nine stars on their logo as a way to remember the nine original breweries in Galena!
Something for Everyone
Galena Brewing Company has thirteen beers on tap and something for every taste! Whether you prefer a light beer or a dark stout, Galena Brewing Company has you covered. They also offer seasonal beers and pilot batches for you to try out! Curious about their brewing process? You can tour the brewery on Fridays and Saturdays and get all your brewing questions answered.
Come for the Beer, Stay for the Food
Not only is Galena Brewing Company bringing back the rich tradition of breweries in Galena, they also have an incredible menu! Priding themselves on using local ingredients wherever possible, Galena Brewing Company also never fries or grills anything on their menu. You can get all the taste without all the yucky, greasy feeling after a great night at a pub. Be sure to try their Beer Cheese Nachos and their Miner’s Treasure Pulled Pork, served with a side of Amber Ale Barbecue Sauce.
