Lovers of limited release brews — and unusual blends — will get a chance to sample some of Rockford Brewing Company’s finest as the north-end brewpub will be celebrating its fourth anniversary Saturday, Dec. 17, with special releases and themed food menu from its newly opened on-site kitchen.


The free party starts at 11 a.m. and runs until midnight. The brewery and pub is located at 12 East Bridge St., Rockford; downtown at the dam. And make sure to get your Beer City Passport stamped if you have not already done so.


“We love sharing something special with our customers who are passionate about RBC through this event,” Chris Kies, general manager, said in supplied material. The Anniversary Party always has a festive, happy atmosphere, for our customers and our staff.”


The brewpub will be tapping kegs of 2014 and 2015 Anniversary Ale for attendees, “as well as featuring different versions of the 2015 batch with flavor infusions to complement the Belgian style beer,” according to supplied material. The flavor-enhancing additions will be changed throughout the day, featuring ingredients such as coffee, cocoa nibs and vanilla; oak chips and ginger; dried garden peppers and blood oranges; and peppercorns and cinnamon.
