I've a few of there bottled beers since they started selling them but this is my first visit to the brewery since it opened in July. I tried most of the beers they had. Standouts were the Uletide ale. This beer was just under 9.5% aBV and had lots of flavor. They also had a double bock on there specials menu that served the style well. The Hefe and the Amber tasted better on tap then when I had previously tried them, and the IPA was fantastic.

At far as atmosphere I went in on a sunday and they had football on the flatscreens and the staff was more than friendly.

The food is different but everything I tried (3 of the Tapas) was really good.

Il definitally be back

Nice place in the quaint, historic town in Galena that struggles with parking. In the middle of a string of novelty shops. Nice town. This place has a nice vibe in an industrial setting. Beers are good, not phenomenal. I had their wings that were on special. 20 for $10. The Parmesan garlic wings were phenomenal. The BT was very responsive. Kid friendly as well. I will go back every time I take family for a road trip. Carry out 16 ounces. Can take growlers as well.

Visited the brewery last Friday and took the tour. Brewermaster Jon Wagner led the tour and was very informative. For only $5 you get the tour and a pint of beer. Wagner gives a little beer history, brewery history (Red Stripe was started there), and how they brew. Well worth 5 buck.
