Great River Brewing

Great River Brewery's roots began with a love for great craft beer. College friends Paul Krutzfeldt and Scott Lehnert spent their college years thinking about beer, drinking beer and devising a beer plan. In 2004, the put the pedal to the metal and started a brew pub in Iowa City, Iowa. In December of 2008 the entire brewing operation was moved to Davenport, Iowa with hopes of starting their lifelong dream of packaging their hand-crafted beers.

On a chilly day in February 2009, the first batch of beer was brewed at the new location on the Mississippi River. Packaging began in May of 2010, with 483 Pale Ale and Roller Dam Red Ale in 16 oz. cans.

Production is now at just under 3,000 barrels a year. That's 744,000 pints of delicious beer.
