Looking for a certain type of root beer? This is the place. They have odds and ends that are hard to find. They have 5 different kind on tap and can try them all for $3. Not a huge place to sit and enjoy the root beer, but fun non the less.

Love how they have cases for you to order and ship home - that was probably my favorite part. All the root beer we tried was fantastic!

We enjoy Galena for the the history, shopping and restaurants. Our grandsons always look forward to us buying a case of assorted root beer and sarsaparilla when we visit Galena. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about all of the different bottling companies

Love this place - you can get root beer, ginger beer, sarsaparilla, cream soda, etc. from a lot of different bottlers. They have it in bottles and on tap, and will make you a rootbeer float if you want! Cute, nice service, fun.

Had a great time speaking with the owner who gave us a lot of information on all the fun stuff about root beer. It was exciting to hear that most of the repairs he carries are from our hometown. Which I had brownies which was really good and also loved the sarsaparilla. If you don't plan on spending a lot... More

After circling the town for one hour looking for a parking spot, our five-year-old twins were excited to go get a root beer float and ice cream. To our complete dismay, the woman running the shop would happily sell my five-year-old twin a root beer float but refused to to sell a cup of ice cream to her twin sister.... More

Root Beer Revelry does not make their own root beer but rotate the one on tap from various locations. Love the growler that I can add to my collection!

Set in Galena's historic Main St, this is exactly like a traditional lounge bar but it's ONLY Root Beer. Every kind in the World plus you can get an authentic Black Cow! Belly up to the Bar & enjoy😃
