Brewpub buzzes into business
After over a year of development and several obstacles, the much-anticipated 7 Hills Brewpub is finally open for business. Named for the fabled seven hills of Dubuque and housed in the old warehouse on the corner of Washington and 11th, the establishment is a combination of pub and brewery that brings together the best of both in a unique and fantastic way in Dubuque and the tri states.
The brewpub is designed in the vein of striped-modern-casual architecture, drawing off its brick-and-mortar roots with rustic woodwork and tin paneling. It features both indoor and outdoor communal seating to encourage a friendly and interactive environment. The pub is complete with a kitchen, a full bar, and a stage for live music.
True to its name, 7 Hills houses its own multi-tank brewing system. Beverages are created using on-site equipment, resulting in the pub’s colorful assortment of original beers and ales, which include Muddy Tugger, 7-Headed Monster, Staches to Ashes, and Bernie’s Red Ale. In addition to regular beers, there are also seasonal specials available at different times. The pub’s diverse menu includes many new and original foods, all cooked exquisitely using locally-grown and provided ingredients.
“We hope to be a catalyst for independent businesses in the Millwork District,” says 7 Hills brew-master Sean Carter. “We want this place to be something that will bring the community together.”
Since it’s opening, 7 Hills has been a smash hit in the warehouse district, scoring a loyal following of patrons in a short amount of time.
Alcohol is only served to those who are 21 years of age and above even though it is open to the public.
