Granite City Food & Brewery, a casual dining restaurant with an on-site brewery. They serve signature beers, including Duke of Wellington (an English ale) and Broad Axe Stout (an authentic Irish beer), and entrees such as the London broil. They offer a broad menu of items that are prepared fresh daily and are served in generous portions at reasonable prices. Their handcrafted beers are moderately priced and offer unique styles and flavors not typically produced by major breweries.
Shortly before they opened their third store, they launched their patented brewing process, Fermentus Interruptus, which makes micro brewing for multiple locations more efficient. This process allows them to ship sweet liquid called wort, from their central brewing facility to individual stores. When this liquid reaches the stores, they begin the fermentation process and complete the brewing. They use Fermentus Interruptus at all of their Granite City Food & Brewery locations.
