Long Description:
Our mission is to celebrate! We strive to bring back to Galena some of the rich brewing traditions lost over the past 80 years, and to celebrate with our customers the delights of God's gracious provisions of food, drink, song & conversation, in a family friendly ambience. Cheers!

Galena was the first mineral rush city in the United States back in the 1820's. It grew rapidly as the regional capital of lead mining, the largest riverboat port north of St Louis, and a prominent brewing town of the era, with nine breweries in the 1800's....see the nine stars on our logo! Sadly shortly after the prohibition years Galena was left without a producing brewery or local beer label. The last commercial brewery to brew in quantity in Galena was the Galena Brewing Company™ which operated from the end of the Prohibition until about 1938 when it closed its doors.

Warren and Kathy Bell strove to change this in 2009 when they launched a local beer label using beer contract brewed to their recipes in Wisconsin. In July 2010 Warren and Kathy opened their own 10 bbl brewery and pub in Main Street, giving it the same name as the last brewery in Galena, which ends 80 years of brewing drought in Galena.
