** Galena Location **

Thank You for reaching out to us at The Galena Brewery. The Galena Brewery is all about celebrations and has served as a venue for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, wedding ceremonies and more! 
The following information will give you an idea of all the private party services we provide. 
We have three options for facility space for your event:
•    For groups up to 23 -25 guests we have our private party room with its own bar that rents for $150. The room fee includes a Server/Bartender assigned to your specific event. If your guest list is 26 - 60 guests we would cordened off a portion of the main dining room area for your private party. The setup fee of $200 includes two Servers and a Bartender for your event. This arrangement has proven to be a well received idea in the past - as it provides ample space to roam the tables and meet and greet family and friends. The table setting consists of some high-top tables as well as low dining tables. 

•    For larger gatherings like weddings/receptions with guests from 60 - 130 we offer the "buy out" option whereby you rent the entire restaurant/brewery facility for $1800 – and we close our doors to the public. (Rental is $1800 on a Friday or Saturday - $1200 on Sunday) This has worked well for a wedding venue and/or wedding reception.  We would close our doors to the public and the place is yours. There is seating for approx. 125 - 130 guests and requires a minimum food order of $2500). This makes a fun and memorable venue for the wedding if you are flexible with your date the date would have to be at a time when our business to the public is historically minimal - to justify closing our doors to the public. We have had some wonderful wedding memories at the Galena Brewery!  Suggestions... a Friday or a Sunday after a three day weekend usually works for us - if you wish to have us close our doors to the public. Some Saturdays work as well, depending on the date.
The attached documents outline our banquet menu and pricing. You can create your own buffet to fit your budget. Pricing shown is per person. We can easily accommodate special diet requests such as vegetarian and gluten free. The buffet is free for children under 5. In addition, parents do have the option of ordering from our Kids Menu upon arrival. (Pricing is $7 on Kids Menu)  


We offer a full bar – with craft beer, wine and mixed drinks – both well drinks and upper shelf.  Prices range from $5 for a pint of beer, $6.50 for glass of wine – with mixed drinks pricing at $5 up to $9.00 for a Long Island Iced Tea.
You will find us flexible when it comes to accommodating special requests.  
We look forward to working with you to create a memorable event

"We had a tremendous meeting last Thursday. Thank you and Warren for hosting us. He did a great job welcoming the group and providing some background on the brewery. The food and service was outstanding!
You made me very proud of our little town.” - Bob J

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the staff at the Galena Brewery for making my parents anniversary party run smoothly. From your quick responses to questions via email to the great food and excellent service, choosing the brewery for our celebration was a great decision. Kenny our server was the most attentive server I have seen. He kept me in the loop on how things would go for the evening, when the food was ready, how my guests were doing and how things were going overall. He also made sure I understood the bill. Besides the fact that he was a Bears fan he was amazing! I was very happy with how everything went! Thank you again for all your assistance in planning! Can't wait until we can plan another event at Galena Brewery!" - Ashley M.

"Thank you so much for making our wedding day so wonderful! We couldn't have imagined the day going more perfect. The atmosphere, food, beer and staff were top notch. We have received so many compliments from our friends and family concerning the venue choice. It was a beautiful celebration that we will cherish forever." - Sarah & Joey.

“I just wanted to thank you for putting the dessert tray and pitcher specials together last Saturday for my friend’s Bachelorette Party! The food was spectacular, the service was phenomenal, and the band was so much fun!! Anyway, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we had a great time and would recommend your place to anyone visiting or living in near Galena Thank you again” - Megan F.

“Thank you to all involved in making our rehearsal dinner... the BEST EVER! From our first contact with you to leaving the restaurant it was perfect. You did everything to ensure we had a great evening. The food, what can I say, people are still talking about it. The setting was perfect, where else could we dance the night away. The service, our needs were anticipated & then some. With your kind of customer service and food (oh & yes, the beer) you are bound to be there for many years to come. We’ll be back for sure.” - Marcia & Scott B.

I hope this gives you an idea of our services.
