Green Tree Brewery – 309 N. Cody Rd., LeClaire, will be a Small brewery that makes handcrafted beer right on the premises. We will have a quiet atmosphere where people can sit and enjoy a pint or samples of our product. For anyone that would rather try our beers at home, we will offer, single bottles, six packs, and growlers to take out. Recently, we secured a coffee supplier for our beers that are infused with coffee. As my wife and I love coffee, and we will have all the equipment anyway. We will have coffee available for anyone that wants some. Whether it's for someone that doesn't like beer, is the designated driver, or they just love coffee!
