Stopped by last week while we were in downtown Galena, I guess I was expecting it to be more. It was just soda bottles on a couple of shelves, mostly root beer. That was it, I'm not sure what the Revelry was about.

The shop owner makes this place a must stop shop on the downtown Galena strip! He's very familiar with his products and friendly with every visitor. He also serves up handmade root beer floats if you're in the mood to recreate a first date.

Four pack for less than 10 dollars. Lots of fun to choose. The owner was a hoot. Don'tt stop here expecting anything but specialty sodas.
