Pour Our Hearts Badge

Whether you order a craft beer, hand mixed specialty drinks, or a premium Intelligentsia coffee, we pour our heart into a perfect delivery every time.


At Hairy Cow Brewing Company, Ogle County’s very first brewpub, we strive to make the best craft beer possible. But we’re so much more. Whether you’re hoping to snuggle up to a cozy fireplace with a steaming cappuccino this winter, or craving a cold beer by the river bank on a warm summer evening, Hairy Cow Brewing Company is the place for you. No matter the season, you’ll enjoy amazing river views year-round while you…

Our tap room was designed and created as a place you feel welcome and could stay for the day. Between entertaining your tastebuds, you may find yourself tossing bags with friends, enjoying the river view from the deck, warming up by the fire, or cracking jokes with the staff. This is a place to relax and unwind. We all need more of that in our lives.

When warm weather arrives, enjoy a river view enjoying food and drinks on the deck, or challenge your neighboring table to a game of giant Jenga over a brew together. The outdoor river scene is beautiful in the summer and fall. So, don’t miss a game of Cornhole Toss in the yard. And, don’t worry about refills. We will be out there to take care of you!
