About Us

The owners of Germania Brew Haus - Jared & Carolyn - are active duty military officers in the Army and Air Force, respectively. They grew up in Southern Illinois and wanted to bring a specialty coffee house and craft taproom to their old stomping grounds. With the help of their families, they opened their doors in early June and held a Grand Opening in early July.


Parking is currently street-parking only, but several lots nearby are within walking distance in case the street spots fill up!


We proudly serve coffee roasted by Crimson Cup. We prepare hot, frozen, or iced espresso-based drinks, teas, smoothies, or even frozen hot chocolate. We serve both savory and sweet baked goods from fellow small business, Frost Bakery (recently relocated to Jacoby Arts Center's kitchen, just next door).


Our taproom uses RFID-technology to allow you to serve yourself as many ounces of 16-different craft beers as you choose. The selection is constantly rotating, so check out what we've got on tap at any given time using the "Menus & Events" Tab. You can also follow us on Untappd for notifications every time we tap a new brew. Please know that all alcohol purchases are debit/credit card only. When you've satisfied your thirst, check out with us at the register and you're only charged for the ounces you pour.

  Conference Room

Reserve our Conference Room for your next off-site meeting or special event! Parties from 8-12 can take advantage of our large conference room located upstairs. We provide a Google Chromecast hook-up so that you can display presentations or the like from your PC to our TV screen. Call or see a barista to make a reservation, and coordinate specifics!

  Outdoor Balcony

Enjoy our outdoor balcony by heading upstairs for a beautiful view of the river and bridge, if the weather allows!

  Upstairs Study

Pictured above, we also have a study room upstairs, which is perfect for study sessions and a cozier visit.
