Granite City Food & Brewery serves a variety of seasonal and signature brews. The signature collection available at the restaurant’s 33 locations includes:
·         Broad Axe Stout – Style: Oatmeal Stout, a thick creamy head sits atop the opaque blackness of this oatmeal stout. Roasted chocolate and coffee notes make this beer a great treat!

·         The Bennie – Style: German Bock, a German style lager, our bock carries a brownish color, a medium body, and a mouthwatering smoothness from the wonderful malt and sweet caramel flavors.

·         The Duke – Style: India Pale Ale, the rich color of this pale ale hints at the bold malt character used to balance the huge hoppy flavors and defining bitterness of this classic English beer.

·         The Northern – Style: American Lager, brewed to the American standard of a classic lager, this light golden beer is our mildest offering with a creamy, smooth taste.

Micro brewing for multiple locations is more efficient with Granite City Food & Brewery’s patented Fermentus Interuptus™ process, which allows a sweet liquid called wort to be shipped from a central brewing facility to individual stores, where fermentation and brewing are completed. This process was developed to ensure consistency in flavor and quality patrons expect. 
My favorite drinks were The Northern, The Duke, & Raspberry Mojito. I also sampled the Broad Axe Stout, The Bennie, and the Skinny Margarita. I recommend getting a beer flight so that you can decide on your favorite brew.
Flatbread pizzas, Spinach Artichoke Dip, Chocolate Cake, & Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie
For appetizers I highly recommend getting the yummy Maple Pepper Bacon & Tomato flatbread pizza or the Spinach Artichoke Dip. I tried the Asian Glazed Shrimp, but it was a little spicy for me.
My favorite dinner courses were the Braised Bison Short Ribs with horseradish mashed potatoes, Ponzu Glazed Salmon with rice & stir-fried vegetables, and the Pulled Pork Waffle Sandwich with sweet potato tots.
Make sure you save room for dessert. If you are like me it's hard to pick just one, so order the Mini Dessert Trio. The moist chocolate cake with whisky butter sauce, cheesecake, & berry sorbet were all delicious.
