Breweries & Distilleries

If you love craft beers, the Galena Brewing Company is a good place to start. They brought a local beer label back to Galena in 2009 and tied Jo Daviess County to some of its earliest roots when it housed nine breweries before the prohibition. You can also head over to Warren, Illinois to visit the Pecatonica Beer Company Tap Room which also happens to be on the historic Stagecoach Trail.  Blaum Bros. Distilling Co. is another great place to stop and try some premium American spirits, all of which are handcrafted on a handmade copper still from grain to bottle.
