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.

Hi When did you visit the Galena Brewery? We were open from 11am to 7:30pm on May 2nd, sorry we missed you somehow.

Nice place, family friendly and friendly service. Food was fine but nothing special. To be fair, we did not try the brews, so maybe those are its drawing point. We only visit 1-2 per year, so not sure that we would return before trying other...places.More

This was my Brewhaus salad. Iceberg lettuce, tomato, and carrots. It looked like they took a head of lettuce, cut it into quarters and served it that way. I had to get a fork and knife to cut it apart. I felt like I was...just eating a head of lettuce with ranch drizzled on top. I ate a few bites and pushed it away. At least the Bloody Mary was good.More

They had the best cheese curds we have had in a long time and the craft beer was pretty good as well. Definitely stop in for an order of the curds early in the trip because you will want to come back for them again!

We stopped here because our daughter and son in law love the beer. Thought we would order some appetizers. Pretty unimpressive. I get that it's a brewery and beer was good but come on...step it up a bit. Pretzel bites were good, cheese curds pretty...good but the nachos were a joke. Some skimpy taco chips on a plate, a teeny splatter of cheese and some kind of brownish dip. What added insult to injury, it's like they put in the chips from the bottom of the bag, lots of crumbs. Go there for the beer but eat at Dirty Gurts first.More

Spacious, welcoming and comfortable space. My husband enjoyed the Anabelle IPA (I'm a wine drinker - and was happy with the selection of wines as well). The service was attentive and friendly. The food was really great. My husband had the BLTA and I had...the Portobella Croissant. Both very yummy and accompanied by an excellent potato salad (the BLTA) and a corn salad - fresh and tasty (the Portobella Croissant). Definitely reccommend for refreshing libations and tasty food that won't drag you down.More
