We are proud to profile Iron Spike Brewing Company, one of our favorite Galesburg area restaurants. This popular downtown hotspot has historic charm, being located in the Central Fire Station. There is a brewery and dining area for two distinct experiences. A large glass wall separates the brewery and dining areas, with original fire poles in the bar area. If you’re into drinking craft beer, Iron Spike has 10 barrels full of the highest quality, homemade beer. This is not your usual pub, featuring sensational cuisine, craft beers, and much more for an enhanced experience.


Iron Spike Background

Ryan Cardwell, Owner and Executive Chef, grew up close to Galesburg in nearby Dahinda, IL. Ryan graduated with a Le Cordon Bleu degree in Culinary Arts from the Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago. After graduating, Cardwell moved to Colorado where he realized the endless possibilities of pairing delicious cuisine with craft beers. Iron Spike Brewing emerged in an area where Ryan had deep roots and was passionate about the community.


Iron Spike Brewery

Blake Benedict, Brew Master, puts his own flair on traditional styles including pilsner, porter, IPA’s, Belgian, wheat, and many others. Visitors, whether beer enthusiasts or not, will enjoy the traditional yet unique flavors. Beer lovers will soon be able to enjoy the Iron Spike craft beers whenever and wherever they would like. Cardwell and Benedict have been working hard since opening in hopes of bringing their craft beer cans into grocery stores. In the Fall of 2016, Iron Spike Craft Beer will be available for purchase in grocery stores within the local Galesburg area.
