Brewery
Nestled alongside the Fox River, and including a full-service container bar, our patio comes alive 12 months out of the year with a heated seasonal enclosure during the winter months.

Looking to host a party? Our private dining room adjacent to the brew house is certain to bring together small to medium sized private events in a vibrant sit down or cocktail environment.

While our beer is certainly the front man of this band, the supporting musicians are excellent players! A full-service kitchen, wine and spirit program allows not just beer lovers but all to enjoy our carefully curated offerings. Whether you come for the beer, food, wine or spirits we know you’ll stay and come back because of the great times you’ll have.

    Great place for lunch and a work luncheon. Everything about this place is amazing - from the beers to the service, and the bar eats. Fresh and delicious. It's a 45 minute drive for me, but I'll be back.

    Burgers were good. But the strawberry biscuits were terrible. Biscuits dry and very hard. Strawberries were dry too and not much whipcream

    The food service was extremely prompt.  an attentiveness of the waiter was very good. Items, including two appetizers and five different dinner entrées for the party were all well enjoyed.

    We enjoyed the loaded chips. Good shareable. My daughter liked the fig prosciutto flatbread (tho kind of small). My son liked his burger—cooked a perfect medium. My husband got the chicken Caesar and I got the roasted butternut squash salad with grilled chicken (good sized)! Two berry mule cocktails were delicious tho they described as blackberry and blueberry was in it. Still yummy—light. Good service and we ate outside to hear the music on the Plaza. My only complaint was the meal prices are on the higher side for simple meals. Would return to hear the free music on the plaza for sure.

    Food was solid; cheese curds appetizer was great, salad was very good, reuben was a little overcooked and fatty. Sat outside on the plaza side and it was wonderful - nice little breeze, energetic. There was a three piece acoustic band playing out from by the river and we could still hear the music enough to recognize the songs but not have it overpowering trying to talk over it. Service was a little off - have been here many times and service has always been tight, this was an exception but did not ruin the dinner. We will be back again for sure

    Too loud 90’s grunge music for a river side lunch meeting.

    We asked for outside seats when I made the reservation. At the time, I did not know that reservations for outside by the river is not an option. I arrived and asked, but they didn’t even offer the option to wait. That is my reason for poor ambience. Sitting in the courtyard with the hot sun was not pleasant.
