Venue Info

Named after the Rock Island Railroad -- its tracks still running through the city -- Rock Island Public House is Blue Island’s craft beer bar with a mission to support small, local businesses. Founded in 2012, Rock Island has 16 rotating taps featuring local brews (including one-offs and rare pours you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere), a spirits list that's chock-full of locally crafted options (Malort included), an in-house art gallery featuring the works of various local artists, and the selection of pinball machines rotates nearly as much as the beer taps to ensure the local patrons have a variety of options to feed their arcade fix.
