Visit the Galena Brewing Company This Summer

Enjoy a craft brew at the Galena Brewing Company in downtown Galena This SummerIf you need another reason to visit us in Galena this summer, the chance to sample local brews at The Galena Brewing Company might just be the push you need.  It’s no secret that Chicago has a reputation for being an exceptional craft beer destination. Some would even say it’s one of the best cities for beer lovers in the country. With popular Illinois breweries like Revolution Brewing and Lagunitas Brewing Company being based here, that’s no surprise, either.

But head just a few hours west of Chicago to the charming, historic town of Galena, and there’s a surprise waiting for the avid beer enthusiast.  Galena Brewing Company has been producing a healthy range of acclaimed brews since 2009 when they brought brewing back to Galena. It’s not the only worthwhile Illinois brewery worth visiting while you’re here, either, but it’s certainly the easiest to reach when you stay with us at our Galena Bed and Breakfast.  Book your room at our Galena Bed and Breakfast today!

Travel studies released recently have shown that getaways that are closer to home and to smaller towns are considered to be one of the best options.  That is great news for Galena, as we’re located just under 3 hours outside of Chicago, and easily drivable from other major cities like Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, and Des Moines. When you get to downtown Galena IL, you’ll notice a few things are different!

The town of Galena has decided to turn its Main Street, which is normally bustling with both cars and people, into a pedestrian-only zone.  It’s transformed our town and is allowing our local businesses to flourish once again.  That is, of course, provided you take the time to get here and join us!  With downtown Galena closed to traffic, staying nearby and within walking distance is more important than ever. Our Galena Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to stay, as we’re located just off Galena’s Main Street, and within easy walking distance to everything downtown Galena IL has to offer.  Book your room at our Galena Bed and Breakfast today!
