At Our Brewhouse, Birds of A Feather, Dine, Drink, work and Nest Together.
Located in downtown Rockford in the heart of the exciting Madison Street Corridor. Prairie Street Brewing Co.’s famous “brewhouse” is home to craft beer, hand-crafted food, good vibes and a sense of purposeful community.
Built on the east bank of the lovely Rock River by an English immigrant brewer named Jonathan Peacock in the mid 1800’s, it has been lovingly restored by skilled local architects and craftsmen. The stately old building is a shining example of both purpose-built efficiency and inspired adaptive re-use.
The list of things you can do at Prairie Street Brewing Co. is long: drink locally hand-crafted beer; dine on delicious, locally sourced food; host a wedding, meeting or special event; live in a loft-style apartment; work in a riverfront office space; dock your boat permanently or just for a visit.
To make reservations for lunch and dinner or to book an event or wedding, please contact us or call 815-277-9427 (ext. 2). For information regarding living and office spaces or permanent boat storage, contact us or dial 815-277-9427.
Our Brewpub Features Hand-Crafted Furniture Made Of Reclaimed Timbers From Jonathan Peacock's Original 1800's Brewery
With expansive interior glass windows giving visitors a front-row seat into the good, bad and the ugly of our brewing process (the only ugly is when the brewers get in a food fight – and the only bad is the rare day when something’s not brewing) the main Brewpub at Prairie Street Brewing Co is the perfect spot to enjoy our famous, freshly crafted beer. On any given day, you might sit next to somebody at the bar from out-of-state – or out-of-the-country – or a Real Original Rockfordian. One thing you’ll more than likely have in common is a passion for great craft beer and freshly sourced, hand-crafted food. For those rare individuals who don’t love beer as much as we do, we have a full bar and a welcoming wine selection. The brewpub’s exposed brick walls and big, arched exterior windows offer warming natural light, date back to the days when Jonathan Peacock built the building. It all adds up to a cozy yet exciting environment that has prompted so many people to say, “man, this does not seem like Rockford!” Come join us and be among birds of a feather at Prairie Street Brewing Co.
