Don't Take Our Word For It; See What Our Brides & Grooms Had To Say!

Prairie Street Brewing Co has a history of delivering on its promises and there is nothing more sacred to us than helping wedding couples celebrate their “big day.” We’re pleased to offer a few testimonials from couples who have taken the leap into married life right here on our dock and in our beautiful, historic events spaces. We could not be happier for them and we could not be more proud to have played a role in making their big days special. As you will see, many of them enjoy coming back often and reliving fond memories of a joyful day spent with their family and friends.



“We’re from Sugar Grove and wanted to have a wedding in a super special place. We looked at other options with what I’d call ‘industrial chic,” but nothing came close to Prairie Street’s authenticity and atmosphere.”


“…everyone’s alway talking about how cool it was. As soon as we walked in and met the staff, we fell in love with the place. We liked the blend of rustic and industrial, the beauty of the building, and the river. It just says, ‘history.'”


“We loved Prairie Street Brewing Co. at first sight. But, we really fell in love with it on our wedding day when my wife was so dehydrated she ended up in the emergency room. Honestly, our wedding could have been a total disaster. But, Prairie Street came through, made changes on the fly and even though our ceremony on the dock started two hours late, everything was perfect. Just beautiful. The Prairie Street staff opened the bar while we were at the hospital and our guests had a surprise pre-wedding party for the record books. When we finally showed up, they were having an amazing time and everyone rolled into the ceremony in a great mood. What a memorable day! We love going back and reliving our good wedding day memories.”


“My fiancé (now husband) and I live in Milwaukee. We looked at Milwaukee and its wedding venues first, but I eventually realized I really wanted to have our wedding at home in Rockford – but I didn’t know where in Rockford. I was home for a visit and talking about venues with my Mom and she told me about Prairie Street Brewing Co. She and Dad love it. They go there just about every week and do the Dinner on the Dock all summer. She said I HAD to see it. I went with our wedding planner and thought it was perfect as soon as I walked into the building. When we went out on the docks, I knew it was perfect. My husband is a big craft beer fan so he was sold on it, too. The people there were so good to us and so professional. They had plans and backup plans. Everything went off without a hitch and I was so happy. All our vendors worked seamlessly with our planner and the Prairie Street staff. We had a lot of out-of-town guests and every single one of them was impressed. People still talk about our wedding to this day. We definitely made the right choice.”
