The banks of the Rock River in Byron will soon be home to a new brewpub, and I cannot wait to belly up to their beautiful bar this November!

Hairy Cow Brewing Company is hoping to have their doors at 450 E Blackhawk Dr. officially open for business by November 1, 2018 according to the Rockford Register Star, and what patrons will find inside sounds absolutely amazing!

The RRStar reports;

The Hairy Cow will have an 8.5-barrel brewing system and a taproom featuring some of the brewpub’s 22 beer recipes at any given time. There also are plans to have docks in the spring.

Among their 22 beer offerings is a fruity, Belgian wheat ale called "Fission Wit", whose named was inspired by Byron's nuclear plant. They will also have brick oven pizza and a family-friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy.

I don't know about you, but I can already envision myself enjoying many a frosty brews enjoying the beautiful views out of these amazing windows.


We can't wait to officially meet you, Hairy Cow Brewing Company!
