St. Charles Brewery

A Heartfelt Thank You

All of us here at Riverlands Brewing Company would like to extend our deepest thanks for the support and feedback we’ve received from the citizens and fellow businesses of St. Charles, as well as the craft beer community abroad. Our first month of operation has been quite a whirlwind, and we thank everyone for their patience and patronage as we continue to grow and evolve.

If you haven’t visited our taproom yet, we’d love to invite you to join us! While Friday and Saturday evenings have been quite busy with our food truck partners and events, there are slower days/evenings such as Wednesdays and Thursdays, if a relaxed atmosphere is more your speed.

Thank you all again for the continued support, and watch this space for updates on special releases, beer fests we’re attending, and more.

The Riverlands Crew

Where Things Stand...

First off, in case we haven’t mentioned it, thank you for your patience and continued support for Riverlands Brewing Company! It’s a new year already, and we’re chomping at the bit to get beer in your hand.

So, when exactly is that going to be? The best answer we have for you right now is, soon…but we don’t have a hard date at the moment.

The good news is we have all of our licensing and permits in place to actually brew beer. We’re waiting on a few additional inspections and permits for the taproom, but its construction is WELL underway as well. Once our brewhouse is up-and-running, we’ll have a better idea of when we can conceivably open.

In the meantime, take a look at some new equipment photos below, and make sure to follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to keep up on the latest news and updates. Or, scroll to the bottom of this page and sign up for our monthly newsletter and updates.

Yes, we did name our four 10-barrel fermenters after one of our all-time favorite bands. We can’t wait to fill these guys up with hoppy fermentable sugar water.

Now Hiring Taproom Staff Members

UPDATE: At this time, we have filled all of our part-time positions and our new team members have been notified. Looking forward to working with our new taproom staff!

As construction accelerates at the brewery, it’s time for us to start building out the Riverlands team.

We’re now accepting résumés for part-time taproom staff members. Note that employment would not begin until mid-to-late-February.

What would the perfect candidate bring to the table, you ask?

- A high-energy, hard-working, yet laid-back personality
- A love for craft beer and discussing it in a knowledgeable fashion
- A passion for guest services and a clean, tidy work environment
- The ability to stand and move for long periods of time, as well as lift up to 50 lbs
- The availability to work evenings, weekends, and some holidays
- Bartending / Taproom experience a plus
- BASSET certification required upon hiring
- Cicerone® Certified Beer Server (Level 1) preferred, and is required within 90 days of being hired (will be compensated)

Follow Along with Our Build Out!

Hey guys!

For those of you who follow our social media, you’ve seen plenty of build out progress photos. For some better quality and unique photos, follow our construction page! Things are moving along fast, with our fermenters and brite tanks already delivered and our brewhouse due next! Our walk in cooler is in place, and the taproom is coming along nicely. We aren’t quite ready to throw an opening projected date just yet, but we should have an idea in the next month or so!
