“The demand from Bethalto has been great. Every social media post receives multiple comments from people asking for Bethalto to be next,” he said. “It was also on the radar previously due to its location in relation to our other stores - but also because of the time me and my family spent there growing up, which has continued through today.”

He also said he appreciates the cooperation and collaboration from community members.

“What we love about these small towns like Bethalto and Jerseyville is that the communities and their representatives are all so welcoming and supportive,” Brynildsen said. “Village Hall in Bethalto has been another great experience in cooperation of private and public entities doing something great for the citizens of Bethalto. We are very excited about [the] ideas currently on the table.”

While an exact location has yet to be disclosed, Brynildsen said more information should be “releasable” soon. For more updates on Germania Brew Haus, visit their Facebook page.
