A post shared by Bill Stage - Voice Talent (@billstagevo) on

“Drunken Pumpkin Ale” and “Marzen” Oktoberfest-style ale are tapping at Midwest Ale Works.  Glenn Cole is down in St. Louis at Bluewood Brewery.  We talked about brewing so close to one of...if not...the biggest brewery in the world and what that means to the "little guy".  There's around 90 microbreweries in about a 150 mile radius.  Every neighborhood has their own brewery.
We also talked about the importance of supporting local craft breweries.  With Big Swing Brewery from Rock Island closing...it really strikes home the point that we need to get those take home growlers & cans to help out.  With the holidays coming up...make plans to buy all your family beer!
We'd like to wish a happy 2nd Anniversary to Knox County Brewing Co. in Galesburg IL

What is old is new again. GRB Brew Lab was introduced to the Geneseo community and Quad Cities followers just a few months ago. Since then, they have been busy inside and out. Since building up their portfolio of house brews, they have built up their customer experience. Just off I-80 you can find a range of beverage options with crafted beers, seltzers to sodas. Whether you enjoy drafts, cans or growlers, GRB has what you need. Grab some lunch or dinner with their creative food menu including brick oven pizzas, burgers, wings, tasty apps and more. Opt outside to enjoy their new deck and covered patio space, which includes a dog-friendly area. Follow GRB on facebook and instagram to find out when they have live music, specials and more!
