We are a Galena grassroots craft brewery using only the best of local ingredients...The only brewery in Galena, and the first to return to that historic brewing town in 80 years.

We have had so many requests by our customers over the years to bring our beer closer to their homes, and so would you believe, here we are! Cheers!

Come along to the Galena Brewery™ Ale House to taste our offering of 13 delicious beer styles. We will also feature a delectable order-in pub menu made with local ingredients by local folks right here in Moline.

We have five regular house brands on tap, and eight seasonal and guest taps. We have taken strides to ensure that our bar service is excellent. Beer tasting flights and full bar …wine and drink specials!

Football games on 65-inch screens with really cool surround sound. When the game is on...You are THERE man!

We have electronic dart boards, arcade game set, Touch Tunes….we wont mind if you hava blast!

We hire out our 80-seat bar/games space for parties, weddings, catered wedding rehearsals, corporate meetings/seminars, etc during the mid-week.

Our mission is to celebrate! As many, many of you guys know, for the past 10 years we have striven to bring back to Galena (where there used to be 9 breweries) some of the rich brewing traditions lost over the past 80 years, and to celebrate with our customers the delights of God's gracious provisions of food, drink, song & conversation, in a family friendly ambience. We think we have done that now, and want to reach out to Moline next.

Come join us, we are lonely….and thirsty!


Warren and Kathy came to Galena in 2003 to own and run the Captain Harris Guest House. It was during this time of hosting the visitors to Galena and sharing the attractions and history of Galena that a desire grew in their hearts to see Galena's brewing heritage returned and celebrated, such that both local residents and visitors would have an opportunity to enjoy some of Galena's brewing tradition.

Kathy was born and raised on a farm in Le Claire, IA, (local girl!) and has an accounting background. Warren was born and raised in South Africa, (African American) emigrating to the US in 1997, with a Control Engineering and SAP software consulting background.
Warren & Kathy now live in Maquoketa


We are very proud of our daughter Jayme Caspers who has distinguished herself in every facet of the Galena Brewing Co in the past 10 yrs and will be managing the Ale House in Moline.
