Bent River Brewing Company was conceived by Tim Koster of Koski Home Brew Fixens Ltd. April 1993, Koski Home Brew Fixens Ltd. opened its store front in downtown Moline. In the fall of 1996, the Bent River bar opened to the public without brewing equipment.Â It would be a couple years before the first keg of our American Pale Ale flowed from the beautifully-polished, Bohemian Brau Haus copper kettles.
In 2009, local restaurateur and patron of Bent River Brewing Co., Joel Krogman, joined the team to expand and protect our brewing traditions and transform the Moline location into a fully-operational, top-notch brew house, complete with a full restaurant and patio.
The Rock Island Brewery, Tasting Room and Distribution Center opened its doors in spring of 2012 to meet the demand of Bent River's explosive fan base and retail accounts. With a brand new fermentation system and bottling line, Bent River Brewing Co. quickly expanded beyond its Mississippi River Valley roots and can be found in stores, bars and restaurants across Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.
