In 1849, an English beer enthusiast named Jonathan Peacock settled on the banks of the Rock River at 200 Prairie Street with one thing in mind: brewing his own beer using time-tested European methods and locally sourced ingredients. Many decades later in 2013, Prairie Street Brewing Co was founded by three modern day beer enthusiasts in the very same building, employing the very same approach. Prairie Street Brewing Co is still thriving. Still growing. And still making people happy in our beautiful, Real, Original hometown of Rockford, IL. Come, be among birds of a feather at Prairie Street Brewing Co.
