Spirits

While the small yet surprisingly significant town of Galesburg has much to offer, one of the staples in this midwestern community are the various craft beers and custom drinks provided by local bars and breweries. Whether you prefer hoppy IPAs or a lighter wheat ale, this town has a beer to satisfy just about anyone (21 and up, of course).  
 
One local favorite is Iron Spike Brewing Company. Located downtown, this rustic brick building gives off welcoming vibes to all who may enter. The interior is decorated with graffiti that provides a visually appealing, artistic atmosphere to go with the enticing food and beer. 
 
Next, our journey brings us to the inventive La Cantinita. Quiet music floats through the air and the modernistic design mixed with the beautiful art pieces adorning the walls immediately set the tone. While it is largely a tequila bar, it has plenty of delicious food and snacks, making it a worthwhile excursion for the entire family. On their drink menu is a variety of margaritas, each one of them, while delicious, packs a punch.  
 
The newest addition to our craft beer family is Reserve Artisan Ales.  This pour-yourown craft brewery in downtown Galesburg offers over 30 different brews to enjoy with friends in a relaxed, fun atmosphere complete with indoor and outdoor seating. 
 
Weve had the brews, a little tequila, now how about some bourbon?  The Bar 65 is fast becoming a hot spot for whiskey fans. Walking up to the expansive wooden bar, you will face a literal wall of spirits from which to choose.  Sam, the bartender/owner, will immediately make you feel like you have been friends forever and youll want to visit again. 
 
Finally, our tour brings us to Hidden Hills Vineyard and Winery. A gravel path leads you to the beautiful winery where you will find a taste experience unlike any other.  Cozy up to the unique custom-designed bar and sample a variety of wines produced on-site. 
 

A small town with big-time flavor, Galesburg will get you in the spirit!
