There’s a long-awaited new addition to downtown Rock Island, and you’re invited their Grand Opening!

WAKE Brewing will be opening their doors for a Grand Opening Event this Saturday at 12 p.m. The new brewery is located at 2529 5th Avenue Rock Island.

This micro-brewery will offer an eclectic taste of blends. Brothers Jason and Justen Parris started out homebrewing and now their talents have evolved to a much grander scale. Their Facebook page,, features some pretty delicious looking beverages!

This weekend a small selection of WAKE brews will be featured, as well as some guest tap handles. The only way to find out what incredible things they have to offer, is to stop down!
