Global BrewGlobal Brew® opened the doors to its first location in Edwardsville, IL in February 2011. Based on the incredible response we received, we opened a second location in O’Fallon, IL in June 2012 that proudly serves as the prototype for our Global Brew craft beer franchise. In the midst of our expansion, we developed and launched our fully branded “Mobile Brew” that some people call, "the coolest ice cream truck ever." With six taps, coolers for beer cans and plenty of storage, Mobile Brew has enabled us to take Global Brew into our communities. Some of the events that we’ve participated in include local festivals, community events, tailgate parties, weddings and graduation celebrations. Mobile Brew has proven to be a tremendous vehicle for generating additional revenue and increasing Global Brew’sexposure to current and potential customers. Mobile Brew is also the vehicle by which we support various charities through our event fundraising program.
