Wake Brewing

2529 5th Avenue, Rock Island, IL 61201


After spending two decades playing in rock bands and touring the country, brothers Jason and Justen Parris both needed a new creative outlet. They chose to make beer from home. The rest is history.

When they started 10 years ago they liked that homebrewing involved a “Potion-Esque” process, it was like magic. You could just add these certain things and you create beer. They had the desire to make something totally different that you can't find on the market.

After years of practice, there is a uniqueness to the craft beers they produce, and it all starts with ingredients you won’t find in commercial beers.

Come try a pint at their craft beer bar or enjoy it on the outdoor patio.
