EPISODE 9 – SEGMENT 3 >
Iron Spike Brewing Company is a craft brewery and restaurant in downtown Galesburg, dedicated to craft beer, inspirational foods, and community relationships.
The building we are in was an active firehouse from 1905 to 1970. We took possession of the building in August 2013 and have carefully restored and converted it into a 2-story brewery and restaurant – and an all-around awesome place to hang out!
Our doors opened in March 2014 and after our first two successful years, we moved into distribution. We acquired an old police station garage – which was directly behind our building – and restored and converted the space into a manufacturing facility. We have substantial fermentation and cold space, as well as a canning line that allows us to package and sell our beers in both 12oz. and 16oz. cans.
But we’re not one to rest on our laurels! So shortly after that, we remodeled the second floor of the main building into the “Players’ Lounge.” Featuring two PGA-tour certified golf simulators, pool tables, dart boards, a full bar and access to all of our great food and beer, it’s the perfect place to get your game on!
We celebrated our 6th anniversary in March 2020 and are pleased to say we still have many of the same team members that started with us all those years ago. We are grateful for them as well as our regular customers. We remain dedicated to providing terrific beer, high-quality food, and a comfortable atmosphere.
We have many more exciting things planned, so stay tuned to our website and social media to stay up to date on the latest news and events! Come on in – when you can – and grab a seat!
