Live music is on hold

Live music is currently on hold due to COVID-19; email events@rockfordbrewing.com to book a show for the future.

Rockford Brewing is for the music lovers who crave a more intimate setting - offering a music venue and restaurant combo incorporated into our upstairs space.

We bring live entertainment to the pub with a weekly open mic night, and live bands on Thursday and Saturday nights. The entertainment reflects the attitude of the brewery with a wide variety of styles represented - we book bands from indie and rock, to americana and folk, and everything in between.

Our stage is one foot off the ground, creating an instant connection between the artist and the audience. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy a meal with friends while feeling like you've walked into a jazz club.

Our upstairs dining area is equipped with sound absorbing panels, ceiling mounted speakers, and stage lights to create an optimal listening experience. With a nearly 360° view of downtown Rockford, our upstairs venue perfectly incorporates both nature and talent of our local community.
